Hello friends! Today I'm sharing more layouts I created for February challenges. This is my son, Travis when he was 14. He made it through the skateboard phase with only 1 ER visit. We had a fabulous outdoor skateboard park in Jacksonville, Kona, with these HUGE, steep sided, concrete bowls. Often I find myself taking a deep breathe and holding it as he took off down the side of one of them.
I'm excited about this one because I used a really old stamp set that I had never used, "Extreme Boy" by Junkitz. I also used "Stars of Worn" by Unity, and a distressed tags from the "Timeless Tags" set by Stampendous. I combined those with some fun Basic Grey "Fact" paper pad and Die Cuts / Transparencies paper embellishments (yellow and green tickets). I used a star stencil as well.
I was inspired by a sketch over at Sketches with a Twist.
And I added orange tinted (mixed with acrylic paint) modeling paste for a challenge over at 2Peas's.
