Scrap the boys

It has been quite a while since I've scrapped for Scrap the Boys.
This month it is a sketch challenge and Wendy Smith always produces great sketches.


I've used a black and white photo so chose to keep the whole thing as neutral as possible.
The 4 boys in this photo went to High School with me.
Harry Williams,on the left, went on to become the first Aboriginal Socceroo.

I started with a background paper that resembles grey stucco.
This prompted me to use gesso through a Prima Finnabair mask.
I've added filmstrip washi tape, several tags including 3 with a velour finish.
My journey tag is from Teresa Collins "Far and Away" collection.
The square brads add a final bit of zing.
