"Please don't grow up" Scrapbook layout by Louise

Hi Scrap Friends

I'm sharing my layout inspired by the August challenge.

"Please don't grow up"

This month we've got a fun sketch to use with the requirement to use a new product or technique.

I went looking through my stash and found this fabulous
Please Don't Grow Up Chipboard
I knew I had some great photos of my boys looking super grown up and it was perfect.

My technique is one I borrowed from the Colour Blast Blog.
Heat emboss the chipboard and while it's still hot, press a stamp into the embossing powder to add texture. I've used a Kaisercraft brick stamp.
To help my texture stand out, I've also "dirtied" up my chipboard with some white gesso.

This page features a water colour background and a bit of a cityscape theme - purely by accident - I chose most elements from my stash.

Really pleased with how this one turned out and it's disappointing that the photo doesn't do it justice.

Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping.
