September Scrap the Boys Share

Ok another challenge done, this time for the September Scrap the Boys. The inspiration was this:

Yes Ink splats!!!! How could I resist getting down and "dirty" for this one????
So here is what I have come up with, a page with my youngest Bayley and some words of wisdom from his Mum!

Used some brand new ScrapFX chippies here.
Just love the flourishy feather!
 My background is a combination of paint, Gesso and mists with a feather stamp thrown in for good measure!

Could not resist using the feather just love it to bits! I sprayed it with the mists then splashed on some gesso, because I love mess!

I used the feather as a stencil first, then added it to the page. I tell you it withstood so much punishment because I also used it as a mask to make a few cards prior to doing this page and it still looks as good as new!

No page of mine is complete without a few scribbles here and there.

Those Mini retro flowers are back again! The only flowers I am able to get away with when it comes to scrapping the boys!!! They really do not care for "pretty". I "oversprayed" more gesso onto the misted flowers and the button cluster because the buttons were really not quite right!

Itty Bitty Typewriter Alphas, I always come back to time & time again!
 The quote I found on the internet, I do love to use quotes for photos that are just random rather than just record "events".

The "nest" here is actually a holly christmas wreath, but I liked it so much I had to repurpose it! 
Well that's about it for now, off to find another cool challenge!
Thanks for dropping in and having a look see!
