Scrap the boys - August Challenge

Hi. Another fantastic Challenge site I love it Scrap the Boys. Being a Mum to 3 boys this is a perfect site for me to participate in. Their August challenge was to create a LO using a piece of your child's artwork. I had the perfect photo for this. Tom has recently completed a self portrait at Kinder. He was so proud of his "Tom" that I just had to have his photo taken beside it. I think he did a great job and he even remembered to paint his glasses on!

Thanks for looking. Nelle.

Kraft it up challenge.

Hi, I have found a great site called Kraft it up (check them out here ). The idea of their challenges is to use Kraft paper as your base and then create according to their monthly challenge. August was all about texture and layering and using a sketch.
Here is the sketch

And here is my intepretation.

It is photos of my middle son Tom. He is so crazy and these photos really show his personality. He is dressed in a transformer dress up with a Hot Wheels apron and chefs hat and has pasta sauce all over his face. He is such a funny little boy!! Love him to bits.
I have used some texture paste, mists and Tim Holtz Rock Candy crackle. It was my first time playing with the crackle and it was fun! Below is a close up of the crackle.

Thanks for looking
