Hello paper friends and thanks for stopping by
I finally managed to get a half decent photo of my two big boys together. Gosh as they get older it gets harder to get a nice photo. They want to pull faces and act like total clowns!
I always struggle a little with boy pages but happy with how this one turned out.
I pulled out some Dusty Attic chippy (my fav) and teamed it up with some (wait for it) Christmas papers from Couture Creations - Highland Christmas. I know right! Christmas papers - but the tones in this collection are quite muted and dark so for me, they were perfect for layering papers under my photo.
I cut down a the big 12 x 12 piece of geo square chipboard to use just a couple of pieces and gently swiped it with a black inkpad making sure to miss some spots. I added some white microbeads over the top for a bit of texture as well as splattering with white paint.
My cogs I embossed with Tarnished Metals embossing powder and then added some prima waxes over the top.
The background I very gently rubbed some distress oxides over the top of my page with peacock feathers and then added some texture paste over the top of that.
Here are a couple of close ups for you
Thanks again for stopping by
Until next time
