Explore the World

Hello crafty friends and a big welcome to my blog. I would like to share with you a page I have created for the challenge over at Scrap the Boys. Love this challenge and I chose to use the word explore and create my page about my son Riley and what I hope he does in his life and that is explore as much of the world as he can. Now for the challenge and my take on it.

I have created my page of Riley on white cardstock and started my background using the paint/water method. I chose the white with three different shades of blue.

Both my title and brick works are A2Z Scraplets chippies and they have been painted with acrylic blue paint on the bricks and black on the title. On th bricks I also used blue embossing powder here and there.
The other products I used are - 
Large Cogs Stamp (With paint)
Paint pens
Tear drop stencil
Blue tinny beads
Cardboard to raise up photo

I would love to see you call again and if you like the look of the challenge then hop on over to  
If looking for some awesome chippies then hop on over to A2Z Scraplets there is bound to be something you like and there are loads of boy chippies to choose from.
