"Keep Your Face To the Sunshine" - The Scrapbook Store DT creation.


Hi and welcome.....

I have another share of a Design Team creation for The Scrapbook Store.
Again I am using papers from the Graphic 45 "Time to Flourish" collection, but this time I decided to get my grunge on and do a boys page with the month of August papers .
This doesn't happen too often that not a flower can be found.

This one is titled "Keep Your Face to the Sunshine".......



So whenever I do a boys page I find that I keep them relatively simple.....the reason why I can't explain, it's just how it happens. I have created this layout using a mixed media background with lots of Stenciling and inking with some random stamping.


I don't know if I have mentioned it before but I love to use Dusty Attic's Rusting Powder. It gives a most perfect texture to chipboards when looking for something a little grungy or rustic. And I find I never have the same effect, because I am also using something differing beneath the rusting layer whether it be paint inks mist or just bare chipboard.


Here you can see the effect of the rusting powder more clearly. The Fabscraps chipboard was firstly coated with gesso, inked and then the rusting powder applied randomly and left overnight once I applied the vinegar.

If you keep scrolling you will find a list of materials for this layout all available from The Scrapbook Store.

Thank you for visiting my blog and I hope your day is a fabulous one!!
