Sketchy Thursdays ~ Garden P 'ART' Y

I finally did it! After weeks of promising myself some time to sit & scrap I finally sat down this evening & created this layout using this weeks Sketchy Thursdays sketch for inspiration. Just look how it turned out. I love it. These photos were taken at the beginning of April last year in our back garden. We had such a fun time. I filled a jug with juice, set down a blanket, gave the kids some blank canvases & some paints & just let them go for it. I'm one of those parents who avoids paints, play dough & all the messy activities as much as possible. So I wanted to give them a taste of some messy fun.
I love how those photos look although my photo of the layout is a little dark, nighttime photo taking never turns out well. It took me some time to crop & adjust colours & contrast on these pictures but I figured out how & printed them at home on my new photo printer that my fabulous husband bought me this week!
