Scrap the boys and Show us your stuff
This is the sketch challenge at Scrap the boys.
and at Show us your stuff we are asked to use a quote "To me you are perfect."
I've combined the 2 challenges.
My handmade item is a wood veneer M that I altered using texture paste and pain to give a mottled effect. I hope this counts as handmade.
I started by cutting 3 wide strips from 3 patterned papers(one hand coloured) in my kit.
Next, I applied sticker strips across 2 of them.
I knew my title would be huge & didn't want to confuse the layout any more so left the moddle strip out.
I machine stitched the 2 circles ,then inked over them to "grunge' my layout.
I placed my matted photo and used 2 Scrapmatts Federation border chippies.
More sticker stars and collection at the top including one saying "My family".
This is my great nephew who is nearly 16.
I added the large grey arrow for more grunge.
Finally, I put my title on, including the hand altered M.
