Monochromatic Madness!

Hi everyone! I'm here today with a layout for the Mad for Monochromatic challenge. As soon as I saw the title of the challenge, I knew the exact photo I wanted to use and the colors I'd put with it. I have had this photo of my baby boy in my scraproom for ages. I used it forever ago on a layout, but I was never happy with it. I just couldn't seem to do it justice. This challenge gave me the push I needed to figure it out. Here's my layout:


My son has the bluest eyes I've ever seen! I loved the idea of going monochromatic for this photo. I had to toss a smidge of something else in there, though, so I used some gold letter stickers. 


I started this layout by painting the background with some gelatos. I did this a bit haphazardly; precision is not my friend when it comes to painting! I then lightly traced a circle and made some holes so that I could add some thread. If you've seen my layouts before, you know I have a bit of a thing for arrows. It's actually a challenge for me not to use them on a layout. I decided to dig through my bucket of scraps and dig out all the blue I could find. I then used them to cut arrows and arranged them around my stitched circle. This one came together fairly quickly.
