It's all about........ME!!

Tuesday.......I was having a bad day.......just one of those days where it didn't seem to matter what I somehow....went wrong!! I so decided to create a layout.....not for any call, submission, DT work, etc....Just cause I wanted to!!

My kids are ALWAYS taking pictures of themselves...making some weird face or sticking out their tongue but one day I came across this picture of my son and the face wasnt' too bad. He had Photoshopped it and I loved it!!!

Now, I don't know about you but GUY pages are a real struggle cause I'm all about the flowers and such. Not only a guy, but a teenage "artsy" guy! SSSSOOOOOO....I pulled out my Tattered Angels goodies....Frost and Coffee Shop Glimmer Mist, Fanciful - Glimmer Screens and Framed Fonts.

In the lower right corner, I used Coffee Shop Glimmer Mist and the large Flourish screen. With the liquid on the screen, I stamped with the screen in the upper left corner. I scrunched up the lower right corner while it was left.

When everything was dry I painted on Frost Glimmer Mist - OMGoodness....this is my FAVORITE Glimmer Mist and it's almost gone and not available any more. Oh what will I do when it is gone???

For my "GROUPING" I used vintage items....buttons, a key and a WAY COOL gear!! all stacked on a piece of black tulle.

I took one of the frames from the Framed Fonts,
and spritzed it with both colors, then I cut it in half.

I don't know about you but I LOVE THE globs of ink on the page!!

I ran all the papers through my Distrezz-it-All....have I ever said before......I LOVE THAT MACHINE??!!?!?!!! son loved the page...EXCEPT for the picture...go figure!!!
