A tender little sleeping beauty

Don't you agree that there is something heartwarming and truly special about babies asleep? I just love this photo, and I spent quite some time deciding how to scrap it - the thing that troubled me the most was which colors to use. The photo is originally taken in colors, but I wanted a tender, innocent look to the LO, so I went black/white. The photo was taken during a period that Jarle was sick, and this was his very first peaceful sleep in weeks due to severe intestant infection. From this day on everything became better.

I wanted to express both innocence and love, so I decided to go with white as my main color and then use red as contrast. I'm quite happy with the result of that. I also added some light blue glimmer mist to the background - unfortunately that doesn't show much in the photo.

This LO is not meant for any album. It's mounted on solid cardboard ready to hang up on the wall. I plan to do similar LO's of all mye kids for display - but that has to be in time. First of all I have to fix digital photos of the two eldest kids, then I have to find the time to do it. *sigh*
