My 2Crafty Chipboard August DT Reveal
Part Two
"This Boy"

 For my second layout today I have done a boy layout featuring my cute little 
grandson Henry. I am really enjoying do some boy layouts & I hope you like it too.

 2Crafty Chipboard Used...
This Boy title
Puzzle Pieces
Mini Puzzle Pieces
Chain Lengths
Steampunk Gears-Small
Steampunk Gears-Medium

I did a mixed media background & then proceeded to work on all the chippie pieces.

First up I coated the "Title", "Stars" & "Mini Puzzle Pieces"with a coat of
gesso followed by a couple of coats of Silks paint in "Pretty Peridot".
I then stamped over the "Mini Puzzle Pieces" for some added interest.

Next the "Chain Lengths" & the small & medium "Gears" were simply
given a coat of metallic "Gunmetal" paint. 

When dry I brushed the gears over with a little Lindy's "Grab A Guy Gold"
 spray to give them a rusty metal look.

Now the best thing on this layout, (apart from my gorgeous grandson), 
are the large "Puzzle Pieces". I LOVE how they look. 

I firstly painted them in the same Gunmetal metallic
paint then I stamped them with an alphabet stamp & heat embossed them with some
Lindy's "Midnight Pewter" embossing powder. Really pleased with these.

Lots of mixed media on my background & also lots of stamping too.

Hey presto, all finished.

I hope I have inspired you in some small way.

If you like my layout I would love you to leave me a comment.
Let me know what you think of those cute puzzle pieces.
I always love to read your feedback.

Until next time.
