My "Scrap the Boys" LO for July.

 Hey to all who drop by,
Finally finished my LO for the Scrap the Boys July Challenge, took a while and turned out to be a disjointed affair with the boys on holiday and all, but here 'tis!

 The challenge set this month was to use tape somewhere and include the word "PLAY". You may not be able to see the tape immediately as I have used it in the background originally, but it sort of got concealed in the old "creative" process! So I also used it to anchor down the pesky twine that was not being so cooperative! The background was fun and sort of evolved all by itself after fiddling with tissue gauze, tape, stencil and mist, with copious amounts of paint and glue thrown in FUN FUN FUN (I love the messy parts!)
Then the embellishing began, lovin' my twine and string passion ATM!!!

 Add some chippies from ScrapFX (Love the fishbones), some buttons and patterned paper scraps and we are done!!!!
 I hope this inspires, I highly recommend doing a few of these challenges, loads of fun and gets you thinking and keeps the MOJO happening!!!!
Happy scrapping!
