Scrap the Boys May challenge
For May the challenge at Scrap the Boys, is to use this image as inspiration:
I had a couple of photos I was considering for this layout, but eventually decided to use this photo of my son, as a teenager, doing one of his favourite things - ride his bike over jumps. As most kids do, he really enjoyed riding his bike, and doing that boy thing.
For my layout - I started with a Scrap Fx stencil and texture paste. I then lightly coloured this with some gelatos. I added some mist, washi tape and rubbed on some metallic lustre. Behind the photo, I added some coloured punchinella. The chipboard circles is a Words Or Whatever chipboard shape. Of course, it wouldn't have been completed without a chevron embellishment from Charms Creations, which I think works perfectly here. I am quite pleased how this turned out, with the circles of the stencil replicating the bike wheels.
Thanks for looking at my layout, and any comments you may leave.
