That's My Boy | Scrap the Boys October Challenge

Hi everyone! 
Popping in today to share my latest design team layout for Scrap the Boys. This month the challenge is a sketch (and who doesn't love a good sketch, right?!) This one was created by Laura Whitaker and looks like this...

I actually did a surprisingly good job sticking to the sketch this time, although I did flip it around a bit. Here's my take on it using the Cocoa Vanilla Studio 'You Rock' collection and some photos of one of my boys helping me wash my car...

"That's My Boy"

I started with the gorgeous ombre side of the 'Experimental' paper as my base, which I dry brushed with a small amount of Colour Blast white heavy gesso. I then added some stamping using my Viva Las VegaStamps 'Doodle Dots' stamp. (This could possibly be my favourite stamp EVER, it certainly gets used more than any other.)

Next, I added the white circles using a fine tipped paint pen, and then it was time to start adding some papery layers. I used pieces of the 'This Way', 'Galactic'; and 'Stripped' papers under my photo; along with a paper doily and some stickers from the accessory sheet. For the tag sticker, I cut it in half and tucked the halves in above and below my photo, adding a small piece of twine to the top part.

In the top corner, I created a simple cluster using another piece of the 'Galactic' paper; a piece of paper doily; some fussy cut stars and a piece from the die cut ephemera pack. The large stars were all fussy cut from the 'Starshine' paper and I love the combination of colours I used - the few yellow ones adding a bit of extra pop to the page.

I kept the remainder of my page embellishments simple -  a rubber charm and ephemera arrow to the right of my photo;, and a few yellow enamel shapes scattered about. To finish off, I added some stamped phrases, the date, and some splatters of white ink.

I hope you will play along with us at Scrap the Boys this month. We have Scrap Boutique joining us as our sponsor and providing a prize for our lucky winner.
