"You Are Awesome"
By Tammy Klingner

Hello there!

Tammy here today to share my latest....

 A layout documenting my son's first job!!
Yep he is awesome!

I used the following 2Crafty Chipboard:

"Assorted Arrows"
"Aidan's Arrows"
"You are awesome title"
"Aztec Arrows Set 1"

I began by using the "Aidan's Arrows" as a stencil.
I placed them randomly on the page and then added some spritz.
When I lifted them up, they had left a cool background pattern.

I then added a few splodges of paint to the pieces of "Aidan's Arrows"
 Chipboard to give it a grungy look.

Such a cool way to use chipboard - a 2 for 1 technique!!

I applied white gesso to a few of the "Assorted Arrows" and then added a
few layers of spritz and ink until I'd achieved the colour I was after.
I then added these randomly to the layout.

I applied the same technique to the 'awesome' part of the "You are Awesome" Title.

To the reminder of the title, I added black paint.
It gave a nice grungy contrast.

Finally, I added black paint to one of the arrows from the NEW "Aztec Arrows Set 1".
I LOVE everything about this piece of chippy!!
The size, the style.
Just gorgeous!!

There you have it!!

A grungy boy layout this time.
I hope that this has inspired you today to try a bit of grunge,
or try using your chippy as a stencil.

I'll be back again a bit later in the month.
If you can't wait that long, feel free to check out my BLOG.

Love Tam
