Scrap the Boys

Since I have three boys I have decided that I am going to take part in the challenges over at SCRAP THE BOYS the first challenge is up and this is my layout of Steven....
He is the one that is hardest to photograph as he always seems to disappear when the camera is around... I love him so much - but I am not allowed to tell him LOL!!!
I have to hold him down to cuddle him or bribe him for a hug - thats ok he knows my arms are always open no matter how big or how old he gets......


I have used the Dusty Attic brick pannel (DA0316) and the Barbed Wire (DA0154)
Tim Holtz papers and I have printed the sentences onto sticky back canvas.


To get the colouring on the brick wall I first used Hot Chocolate Glimmer CHALK over the whole lot, then used a brushed and brushed a fine line with Glimmer Mist Tattered Leather, finally I used Treasure Gold and a little silver rubbed in little bits over the wall.
