100% Boy



Here is the third stuck sketches reveal for August - the 'Stuck' birthday month. I used the sketch as inspiration for my page but It turned out lookiing quite different to the sketch in the end :) I swapped the three small photos for one large image and spread the circle elements out over my page as 2Crafty chipboard gears and hand-drawn circles. I used a 2crafty chipboard title for my page.
Adam was dressed up for a sci/fi exhibition - he had just managed to get the 'hook swing' tool from one of his favourite xbox games Bioshock at cost price and was feeling very smug about it - boys eh?
My papers are Teresa Collins and Kaisercraft. I had a blast playing with the background :) I hand doodled some circles and flourishes with pencil - a new tecnique that I am enjoying using right now. I like the look of the pencil lines and they are very forgiving as ofcourse you can just erase what you don't like!!!




You can check out the 2crafty blog here: They have a huge assortment of fabulous chipboard to match any project!
Thanks for stopping by and remember to pop in again tomorrow for the start of the 'Stuck Sketches' birthday blog hop - heaps of great prizes to be won!
