Birthday Boy with teddy (Bugaboo image)

Hi crafty friends,

I had a lot of fun playing around with creating backgrounds. Firstly for the "squares" paper at the back I used black and two shades of teal to make it and it's so easy. Cut 1cm strips of the 3 papers, glue them down onto a scrap piece of paper in sequence and butting up right next to each other. Once you've covered as much as you need, turn it to the side and then cut 1cm strips again which will give you 1cm cubes. Then add the strips of cubes to another scrap of paper in an alternate sequence until you've covered again what you need. Then cut off any excess overhang so you have a perfect rectangle or square. I mounted it onto black cardstock. 

I used a sweet little boy from Bugaboo then before printing him out, I added a background stripey paper from Polkadoodles and then using my Word editing section I added a blurry green shadow around him. I think it turned out quite interesting, something a little different.
