Our second September reveal ...

Welcome to our mid month reveal. 

This month we feature this delightful piece by Donald James Waters called Spot on.  Our criteria is a Tribute to Dad - any Dad anyway you might like to portray them.

CRITERIA - A tribute to Dad

My layout for the Fathers Day theme. A layout of my Dad of course. I have used the playing card symbols , as My Father, Mum, Aunts and Uncles loved a good game of cards. Lots of stamping, washi tape , old clocks , as my Dad had a old pocket watch. I also used dried tea leaves mixed with gesso for texture. I saw this technique on Marta's you tube channel, I have used dried tea bag paper before , but had never thought of using dried tea leaves, I like the technique.

I was inspired of the colors and the fishing theme. This is my tribute to my husband and the best father ever for our kids. Fishing is the best way for him to just relax.

I was inspired by the pastel colours, and the presence of a pet, so I decided to scrap my cat and his human dad.

The photo is of my son and dear husband when they are playing Nintendo DS. I love the expression in Daniels face. The photo is taken in September 2007. The tag is from  clothes I bought a long time ago 

My inspiration is lazing around and having fun on Fathers Day.

 I was inspired by the colours (especially the blue and purple) and the masculine theme. My little brother's favourite colour is purple so I made a layout about him and his son on their first Father's Day.

This is my favourite photo of my Dad and I out on the farm when I was tiny.  I was inspired by the blue and brown from the artwork and incorporated some spotted paper (hard to see) in my layers.  Miss you Dad !
