This is a Happy Life

The vintage colours and photo theme made me straight away go to my old photo's from my childhood.  

I still have quite a few to scrap as I find the sizing of them tricky sometimes or the faded quality from poor storage hard to colour match.
Any way I found a couple of lovely old black and white ones that I thought would be perfect for this mood board.

I started with a nice blue card stock and using an old shop card I applied some yellow acrylic paint by dragging it across the page from the middle out to both sides.

Then I got some red acrylic paint (dylusions in this case) and a couple of different size paper rolls and applied some circles to my background.

I then added some rub ons and tissue paper to build up the background. I coloured my chipboard title with Posca pens.

I matted my old retro photo's onto black card stock and used magic mount to raise them up a bit.

By the way I am the eldest child sharing that wading pool with my brothers and sister. 
thanks for looking
