Thomas & the Thistle

My first LO using my June kit.  I'm rather pleased with it.  As I was mostly filling the page with photos plus I haven't put many full pieces of patterned paper in my kit - I decided to decorate my card stock to create my own background.  Although it has made the page rather busy I'm quiet pleased with it.  The large swirl is chipboard painted with perfect pearls.  This proved challenging to paint last night as I couldn't see the thin edge I had no chance of seeing if it was covered in paint.  In the end I resorted to using Stu's old glasses - time for an eye test I think.
The title was created in Photoshop - I picked up the blue from Thomas' top to create the background colour.  The glitter pens pick up the shiny theme of the perfect pearls.
