It's A Boy Thing...

This is my lo for the ETG - TECH Challenge over at sb.com ETG (the challenge): I Can See Clearly. This challenge is to use clear (transparent) or translucent items (you can use as many as you want, but you MUST use at least one!) on your layout--this includes transparencies, overlays, vellum, plastic, or even glass (tiles, etc.)! You can use these materials in any way you wish, so use your imagination! 25 Points!
TWIST: NONE, 10 extra points for everyone who does this one, too! TOTAL 35 POINTS!

I use transparencies to cut stars out using my fiskars tool. I then used MM paint and sponged/outlined the stars in the blue and then went back and did some white doodles on them with my uni ball pen. This is a very simple lo for me, but I really liked how it turned out. I added some mustard colored ribbon with blue ric-rac on top of that and then added buttons in the middle of the stars. The 3 is Avery's age in this pic and it was made out of a transparency as well, but I painted it gold. added a few rub-ons and I really loved how this turned out; simple and clean, which is really hard for me!


Thanks for stopping by and taking a lookie!
