My Boy layout with Sandi Clarkson

Hello, 13 Arts friends!
Sandi here with you today sharing my latest creation for 13 Arts.

One of my dear family members recently send me a professional photo of her dog, Jack with no explanation. In my family that is code for: would you please make a layout for me? And since the holidays are near, I put forth my best effort to get something created in time for gift-giving.

I chose a few of the Grungy Walls papers: Tattered WoodRusted and Scratchy Walls and used my favorite paper tearing technique to create a background.

Many of my embellishments were created using the gorgeous Grungy Walls, Postcards A4.

I started with my usual coat of Clear Gesso and then did some random stamping with the Stamp Nature A7 to create some dimension. For further texture, I used the HIS TIME stencil and pushed Modeling Paste mixed with Magic! Powder through it.

Behind my photo I added a chipboard piece from my stash that was altered with my 13 Arts Patina Bronze Mist. Toward the end of the composition, I added some blue paint from the Watercolor set 16 pans - set of watercolors. These colors are quite vibrant and you can use them as is or water them down to your preferred intensity.

To heighten the interest around my photo, I've added some chipboard stems from Chipboard set Summer Rhapsody A4 and some Ecru Sisal. These were left unaltered.

Because this dog resides on a horse ranch with his owner, I felt I needed some to add something from my jar of "mechanical pieces." I was looking for a buckle or some such thing but all I had was basic screws, washers and so forth. I love that these add a touch of grunge to my layout. Multi-purpose medium was used to secure them.

My title chipboard is from Chipboard Set Blue Magnolia A6 and was mounted on elements from the Grungy Walls, Postcards A4.

I have finished with some twine and a few old flowers from my stash.
That's it from my today.
