**"Sweet Cheeks"**
Layout By Di Garling

Well hi there & hello. Di Garling here with you today.

 I have this layout to share with you
that I made using these  very old pics
of my youngest son, who is now thirty seven !!! Where has the time gone?

He was the cutest little boy says one very biased Mother !!

2Crafty Chipboard used...

Sweet Cheeks - title
Chain Circle Frames
Chain Lengths
Mini Cameras
Mini Hot Air Balloons
Mini Fast Forward Arrows

After doing a mixed media background I set about altering all my chipboard pieces.
 The title "Sweet Cheeks", the "Hot Air Balloon" & the "Fast Forward Arrows"
were all treated with a coat of gesso followed by some simple mustard
coloured acrylic paint. Too easy. 

 The "Chain Lengths" & "Chain Circle Frames" were firstly wiped
over with some brown ink before being heat embossed with some vintage photo
Distress Embossing powder. When cool I then wiped them over with some
Viva InkaGold paste in both gold & copper to achieve a rusty metal look.

I sponged a little brown ink on the 
 "Mini Camera" to colour it up to match.

 Well thats all for today. I hope to see you back here again soon.

Until next time.
