Turning A Negative Into A Positive

Welcome to the final post of the first CKCB Members' Blog Hop of 2015.  If you didn't reach me from fellow Brit Virginia then you might want to start at the beginning with Lisa (the full hop list is here).

My layout was created back at the beginning of the month's crop for the CKCB's #3 Challenge: Turn Negatives Into Positives.  I think that the intention was to use negative shapes from die-cuts or punches, but I've also used an attempt to sabotage a photo last Easter to make a page about No.2 Son.

Jimjams - Layout - One Of A Kind

He's not a great lover of my camera and often pulls strange faces ... but funnily enough, he actually used this one as his FB profile for a while!  Supplies are from my January Counterfeit Kit - including that perfect sticker - he certainly is one of a kind!

Fantastic layout and love that you used both the positive and the negative depending on which way you look at it :)

LOL! My #2 son makes funny faces when I try to photograph him as well. I've got some beauties of silly expression photos, (insert sarcastic smile). Not always great for a memory keeping mom.

Love your placement of items and use of negative space.

And, for all your son's attempts to sabotage that photo,...it is kinda cute!! :)

Fabulous layout - I love the bold colours too!

Susanne said...

Nice job, it would take me forever to line up the little arrows. Great color scheme too.

Lisa said...

I agree with Susanne - lining up those arrows would have taken me hours and even then they would have been skew! yours look perfect. Great manly layout for this fun photo.

Sassy Breese said...

Good job of letting the photo shine.

Margie said...

Wonderful layout, the photo is quite amusing!

Susan said...

The grid design is wonderful and I agree with everyone else about the arrows - you have a lot of patience!

Great photo of him Gemma and your chevrons look really cool.

Love the colours and your use of chevrons

Great match of colours and patterns. I find myself wanting to respect my children's lack of desire to be photographed but also feeling a pang or two of frustration!

Laura said...

Love the face! Great use of negatives

Still loving that chevron punch I see!

Sandie said...

I like the idea of using a die cut or design in more than one way. Great page!

Glad to see you are still here and productive. I love the color scheme in this layout.
