Iggle Piggle

Iggle Piggle - A Digital Scrapbook Layout reminiscing upon my younger son’s love of the tv series, In The Night Garden, when he was very young.

My younger son Taran was obsessed with Iggle Piggle® from the kids’ television show In The Night Garden® when he was little!

I wanted to bring the object of my son’s affections to life on this page: Taran had memorised the storybook that his Dad and I would read to him at night and could read it back to us at age 3, he had a HUGE Iggle Piggle teddy bear on his bed, he had a bath-washer version of Iggle Piggle, as well as could talk along with the narrator in the DVD he had.

In creating this page I decided to go for a fun little exercise in using a shape as the anchor for my journaling using a text path in Photoshop. I was going for something simple that would be a frame around the central action of the page, which was the television in the photograph.

Interestingly I learned that photographing an older model television screen was pretty darned hard, the image was a blur of lines in the original photograph. Manipulating images is a speciality of mine though, so I melded a computer screenshot that I blurred to match the depth of field in the image and placed it over the television screen to rectify the image. Also, I custom created a charm of Iggle Piggle from another photo to pop on top of the television set charm on the page.

A nice finish all up, really.
