This Is What Awesome Looks Like.

Afternoon Ladies and welcome to my first post since I have
come home from the Scrapbookit Retreat. Oh and what fun it
was. Classes, scraping and awesome company.

One of the LO's I created at the Retreat was this one of my girl
friends son Lockie. If you knew this cute young man then you 
would also know the title is just perfect for him lol. 

I have created it for the challenge at Kraft It Up. For the March 
challenge you had to create a LO using a different style than you
would normally create. This LO is very different for me. It also had
to include a list. My list is on the back of my LO. The list is about
things I need to do with my scraping.

The title chippie is by Scraptopia and the Steampunked one is by
WOW. For both I have covered them with Modeling Paste and 
then with black Gesso. Over the top of this I sprayed them with 
Ranger, Perfect Pearls Mist - bronze and heat dried them.

To create my back ground I have used three stencils, Scrap FX -
Whirlpools with modeling paste, TCW - Mini Bricks with light 
grey ink and Prima - Cracked stencil with distress ink, Gathered
Twigs. These three stencils went well to create a boy background.
Underneath the photo I have used hessian, Gauze and cotton.

When I was creating this LO I was working alongside the very
talented Cindy Porter who also designs for Scrapbookit. I was so 
lucky to be able to get guidance from such a mixed media talent.
This is what inspired me to do the things on my list.
Thank you Cindy.
