Scrap The Boys - Feb Challenge

Hi Everyone,

I have a LO to share created for this month's challenge at Scrap The Boys.  The theme for this month was to create a LO of your boy/man with someone special in their life.

I recently took this photo of Luke and Brittany, under duress I might add!  They were both so smartly dressed for our close friends daughter's 21st so I begged them to let me take a photo.  I almost had to get on my hands and knees!!  Such a shame I couldn't get one of them smiling, as they kept being silly.  This was the best of the bunch.  They have gotten past that teenage stage where they were constantly bickering and are such good friends now.

Love using a bold colour with black and white, so I picked out the teal from Brittany's dress as it looks striking with the black.   Went for mixed media grunge on this LO, with layers of gesso, mists, stamping and masking.  Added some strips of washi tape and a cool barbed wire chipboard from Dusty Attic and of course couldn't go past adding some gorgeous flowers from Manor House Creations.

Product used:  Manor House Creations flowers, Kaisercraft pp, Prima stamps, Crafters Workshop stencil, Lindys Stamp Gang starburst spray, Luminarte pigment powders, Dusty Attic chipboard, washi tape, Viva Inka Gold - silver, gesso, modelling paste.
