August challenge at "Stuck"

Back again with my first ever entry over at Stuck. I just saw the sketch and instantly knew I had to give it a go: 


And here 'tis, apologies for the crappy photo, action shots are pretty awkward at times, but I so wanted to do a LO of my little Action Man!!!! So this is for the sentiment rather than for a cool photo.

First I misted over a prima mask with 2 colours  then used my go to background stamp, that you would probably spot on all of my latest LO's ( I know I am fixated on it a little) and roughly dabbed it all over the place for a random feel. I ripped up some scraps I had, (don't we all?) Then combined the strips with some of that totally awesome tissue tape that looks "hot" no matter where it goes!

Added some misted, scrunched  muslin for texture then played with some ScrapFX chippies. I have had the Title for so long (bonding) had to use it but wanted to rough it up a little, so after inking I simply gave it a bit of a sand and it got all grungy round the edges, perfect!
The reedy flourishy thingy (technically speaking), is a new product and I just love that it is not too girly, perfect for the boys!!!
 Added some of what I call Boy flowers, can never go past a bit of twine!
 A bit of journalling, and some more muslin here and there and all is complete, probably one of the quickest LO's I have ever done, I just knew exactly what I wanted to do, if only all pages I start flowed so easily!!!

Well that is all till next time, have no idea what to do next, may even surprise myself!!
