Défis du 3 Septembre - Scrap etc - La rentrée

Published on by Antoinette

Here's the sketch for the challenge for 03 September at Scrap etc:

As it's that time of the year I decided to use the sketch to create a layout using photos of my son on his way back to school after the long summer holidays.  Poor mite was dreadfully anxious .  It was only at lunchtime of the first day that he finally came out and said that he was worried because he didn't know how to use his set-square, protractor and compass (which were on the school's shopping list for this year), awwwww

Hard to get him to stand still long enough to take a sharp photo, so they're a little out of focus.  In keeping with the theme my layout is blackboard-black and chalk-white, with splashes of red to complement his schoolbag.

The band of figures uses some left-over numbers from an alphabet set ('blossom') which I purchased on ebay a loooong time ago.  The (very appropriate) stamps come from
La Compagnie des Elfes, and I outlined the page and the photos with my white Posca.  'Rollerskate' alphabet from Quickcutz for the 'September', and that's about it.
