Boys will be Boys

Hold on to your seats!.....I have made time to blog! The LO below is a warm up from not scrapping for a while.....not too bad to start with? Simple but effectieve.

As we all know, I just love gesso, so why not start with something you love? 
Design paper and ribbon used for this LO - Websters pages.
Chips are made useing. - Tim Holtz Sizzix dies. 

Back ground, paper cuts, clock works and ribbon, all decked with gesso. I did not spray with mists as I wanted to keep it simple. I felt the yellow was bright enough. You could always do this if you wanted to bring more color to the LO.

The photo is of my younger brother and my two boys in Wellington, New Zealand ...years ago...

 Letters are cut from the WORDS and INSIDE OUT die's from Tim Holtz. Layerd on the movers and shapers LABELS

You can see how the design paper is colored with gesso so the print and color still shows through in places.

The clock handles are attached with brads. A heavey layer of gesso has also allowed for texture.

I hope you have enjoyed your visit today and hope to see you again soon.

As always I wish you a scrappy day, 
scappy hugs Susan
