The Studio Challenges - Masks & Stencils

 Hello and happy Monday - it's school holidays here for two weeks ☺We have a few things planned which include a little camping trip too - hopefully the weather stays a bit fine as it's starting to get a bit cooler here now.
I'm just popping in to share the latest challenge at The Studio Challenges - we have a very fun challenge to use Masks & Stencils - you can see so much of this around the place at the moment.
Here's what I've come up with:

this page is out for publication ☺



I'm using a picture of my oldest - he didn't really like this photo but I like it and it's a very recent one too - he has that pensive look - would love to know what he's thinking.  He's nearing on 14 so I'm really not sure how often I'm going to be able to snap pictures of him ☺
Anyway, I've left it quite simple, wanting to focus on the texture that I've created using a CW stencil - Bingo - here are some close-up's:
I sprayed the background with a light blue mist from October Afternoon, then used texture paste with the stencil to create a border effect around the photo.  I've also done some stamping (as I always tend to do ☺)
The little faux flair button is made using a stamp from Give a Girl a ==== Keen as Mustard.
The little letters are Teeny Alpha's by Glitz Designs


Here's another view - I'm loving the Pink Paislee Artisan Chipboard Arrows - arrows are just so cool and are all around the place.  Have added in some washi tape under the photo and a few of the enamel dots for some added colour.

Please check out The Studio Challenges blog and see more inspiration from the other Design Team Members - it's a fun challenge and we would love to see you join in ☺
Thanks for coming by!!
