Yes! I Scrapped a boy!

Wow October is such a busy month here but I did manage to squeeze in a challenge over at 
Scrap The Boys! Now how on earth could I resist when the requirement is the colour combo of Blue and Green????? All you regular readers know it really is my "go to" combo and I can whip them up in no time flat without really thinking!
So here is what I ended up with: 

Love all those chippies from Scrap FX and the new release navy washi tape from Sawyers Place.

 The mini biplanes are just so cute and are perfect for that masculine touch. I combined them here with the Graphic circles that suit just about anything really.
 The New Adventures wordlet is a great versatile title. I tried to get a crackle effect in the background by cheating, not using a crackle paste at all because I hate waiting for it to dry...... very impatient!!!

So the texture was created with a thick gesso layer, then I used a crackle roller by clearsnap and just rolled away and your crackle surface is done and dries in minutes not hours! I thank my fellow DT member for Scrap FX, Adrienne Ford for the idea she has a great Blog and shares all her techniques for her inspirational pages check her out here:Adriennes' Blog

 So that is all from me for the month of October so far, do not know when I shall be back as this is a huge month for birthdays in our family so it keeps us all very busy, but happy busy, if you know what I mean.
