I love that look on his face. He is a great kid who brings smiles to so many of us. Even when he is in trouble, he is the first to apologize, without being asked. I wanted to place his picture on the part of the paper that was pure white. I love how the top paper with the runny paint provides a contrast.
I put the lightly stripped paper under his photo to ground the page. I used the bold journaling card to bring your eye right to his face. I also used the silver dotted transparency to add pattern without overwhelming.
I will admit that the whole page was inspired by the You're the Apple of My Eye cutout. I handcut it from a journaling card so I could use it near the top of my page and have some roundness. I also incorporated the glasses since it goes with the theme. I put my words under the border, telling why my son and my love for him is totally pure.
