Twisted Blue Prints #15

Well it has been extremely hot here in Brisbane, for me anyway, its that sort of weather that make you feel a little drained and tired.  However I did finally get a page completed.  I have been wanting to do a grungy boys pages as its seems ages since I have scrapped the boys.  Here in my house my son its not keen on having his photo taken and unfortunately we have no family here in Queensland, so I rely on the odd one here and there that my sister inlaw sends me of my nephew.

I created this page for the twisted Blue Prints Challenge, if you would like to read more on this check it out over at Colorful Creations.  I twisted the sketch for my page.


I have stitched,  punched and inked all the edges of the 2nd background  paper.  I'm not one for just using a particular company's paper range I like to mix and match to suit my needs.  The main background paper is one from October Afternoon sidewide range, 2nd is Sassfrasslass "Mix & Mend". Banner Strips are from Two Kaiser Ranges "Attitude & On the Move" Collection.

 I coloured my textured paste with black paint and used this with a Crafters workshop templete and a template I made using my bubble punch. I have used two die cuts, Tim Holtz cogs and a sizzix luggage tag.

The Chippies I have used a from Dusty Attic the alphabet and a compass that I cut into pieces, these have been inked as well.

Other Products used:  Washi Tape, Kaiser & Hambly Transparencies and brads.
