Just some more layouts

So I haven't been scrapping as much as I would like. David is on a rigorous sleep regimen which has seriously affected any free time I might have once had. Here are some ones I did about a month ago.

This one is from when we took Daniel to the circus for the first time. He was 2 and we prepped the hell out of the kid. Read him books, explained what to expect. We even borrowed the flyer so he would know exactly what to expect. He sailed through it absolutely enthralled. The techniques come straight out of Julie Balzer's class. I used layering techniques, gesso, water colors, oil pastels, scraped acrylics and then stitched some fabric on it.




On this one, I brayered the card stock with black and white acrylics and then glimmer misted over some Ranger masks. I crackle painted some grunge board skeletons then stickled their eyes. I stamped and then painted the title. I distressed and inked the photos. My little buccaneer.
