Design Team Project

100% Boy – Adri Du Preez

 Hello everyone!
I am sharing my March design team layout with you featuring my grandson James and stunning Dusty Attic chipboard designs.
I am blessed indeed. I have the privilege of looking after this handsome little boy during the day while his mommy is at work and I feel honored that they trust me with their most precious little boy.  It is amazing to see him grow and reaching his milestones, his first smile, first teeth and how he discovered his feet for the first time. Today he started blowing bubbles, so absolutely cute.  Jamesie makes our world more beautiful, and more amazing. This little boy is so loved!
Here is my layout.

All the chippies except for the cogs and gears were first painted with white gesso, then chalk paint and dry brushed with white acrylic paint.  I inked the page pebble with Versa Magic in Aloe Vera.
I randomly covered the cogs and gears with coarse gesso, and when dried I covered all the parts with black gesso. I then dabbed the cogs and gears with a sponge brush and the same colour chalk paint as the rest of the chippies. Then, I dry brushed all the parts with white acrylic paint.

These polaroid frames and Wordpl@y elements are so amazing!

Here you can see how I used the mini tabs.  And yes, this little boy is one of a kind!

After everything was glued down I added splatters with diluted black and white gesso.
These are the Dusty Attic chipboard pieces that I have used.
