Gel ASAP -Scrap365

So spring came right on schedule on Monday but it seems winter crept back since, its crazy cold and wildy windy! Perfect for inside creative time.
This time a have made a page using a recent snapshot of Jayce.

 Get This Kid Some Hair Gel Asap

I based this page on the September sketch at Scrap365. There are so many reasons to love their challenges, the sketches are always fabulous with plenty of white space and an amazing prize on offer. Plus they start/end mid-month!
For this sketch I have flipped it to better suit the photo.

When his hair is dry, Jayce has extremely straight hair which sticks very close to his head, we call it the Lego man do. But we discovered when wet it can be styled heaps of fun ways! Although it goes right back to Lego-man once dry. I have journalled about this in bottom right.

And I have used what I think would be my longest title ever to describing my reaction to this and wish that it would stay in the styles sometimes.

I sometimes check out the company blogs of the collections I have for tips/ideas. On Friday the Bella Blvd blog showcased two layouts using this 'lookin' good' tag. Made me want to use mine asap. I added the fox sticker next to it to hint at looking foxy.

When I first went to photo the page, I thought/couldn't handle that much white space. Hence I added some grey paint spots and a few punched stars from the other colour but same pattern paper.

I have a feeling more pages of Jayce with different do's will eventually be made. We nearly perfected the Elvis look last night!
