Boys will be boys


Boys will be boys

Boys will be boys indeed. My nephews. Role-playing for the overzealous, photo-taking aunt! *winks*

So my current guest blogger Erika Taylor challenged me to create a piece that's grungy and distressed with drippy paint splatters. I used the sketch from  Sketchy Thursdays.


 I used lots of the chipboard letter "X" as inspired by Scrapbookers Anonymous's challenge and lots of ugly mismatched buttons. Glued them down on corrugated board. Then I added textured paste all over. When that dried, I misted them in bold colours.

The edges of the My Mind's Eye papers were distressed, torn and inked. Some misting and paint splatters.


Crackle paint on the edges of the photos.

Letter stickers, some cute stickers (still a kids' layout afterall) and some Gauche Alchemy embellishments.

What do you think?
