King Liam

Little cousin Liam always seems to have something on his head. He owns any number of hats. In a pinch a pail or a chair arm cap will do, but there most often is something on his head. Most appropriate of all is the crown. He certainly is the king of all he surveys, especially the hearts of his adoring family.

The many looks of King Liam.
The trick to making myself comfortable with cutting a photo in half turned out to be selecting one that had two separate areas within the photo. In this case King Liam is on one page and his toys on the other.
I used the & sign to accentuate that the two pages were being combined to form a single layout.

Stars and chevrons are what I used as accents. The chevrons go to opposite sides from the middle outwards. (Thank you Danie for the suggestion.)
The stars around Liam's head make him 'pop' off the page.

I wanted some spots of ink on the white and on a scrap of paper tried two tones of green and a yellow. I couldn't decide so used all three. It worked beautifully.
The Sketch

This sketch from Scrapmuch? created by Laura Whitaker, was really great to work with. So many photos are taken in the landscape orientation but the majority of sketches seem to favour portrait.  This is a sketch I'll definitely be using again.
