Too Tired, Too Hot and Too Small :)


Benji loved disneyland, but he did get a little frutrated that he didn't make the height limit for a lot of the rides. He especially wanted to ride the new 'Cars' race track at California Adventure Park but he was no where near big enough (luckily he just made the Mater trucks).
On this day he had been queueing with Sophie to 'meet' princesses all morning. Now don't get me wrong he really loved meeting the characters at disney, but 8 princesses in one morning was just too much for a guy to take. Here we are in the line for 'Rapunzel' and Benji had really had enough!! To make matters worse he was hot and it was nap time.
My products are all from Scottie Crafts. The paper is part of the Kaisercraft 'Attitude' collection (perfect for my theme I thought lol). I used two masks to distress my background. First I used texture paste over a 'chicken wire' mask and when that was dry I sprayed brown ink over a 'brick' mask. I dry brushed white gesso over it all to blend all the elements together.
I based my page on the current sketch at 'lets get Sketchy'. I love the combination of squares and circles. I couldn't resist adding a bit of whimsy to my page by making my large circle into a 'ferris' wheel (I used Baker's twine for the posts).
I added some strip journaling and my title then recounted the story in full on a tag and tucked it behind my photo.
Oh and I should mention that after a sleep and a swim in the hotel pool little Benji was his usual happy self again :)))
