"Sixteen" - Mistra Hoolahan DT

Hi everyone, today I have this layout I have done for my son... he's just turned 16 and insists on very grungy work from me now, now flowers, no sparkles.  So this Tribal Frame was perfect to help fill the layout!

The frame was painted lightly with cream paint, then inked with Olive Vine, Patina and Truffle Mix'd Media Inx and spritzed with Mountain Meadow paint I had watered down.  After I had glued down the frame I filled some with modelling paste and then spritzed again with Mountain Meadow and Pesto paints.

The corrugated background is also from Dusty Attic.  I used the reverse with the solid paper and tore some away randomly, this was painted with cream and Mountain Meadow paint.

The Typewriter ABC Set was painted with Golden's Micaceous Iron Oxide and Stainless Steel paints, it' about as 'sparkly' as I'm allowed to get these days LOL!

Thanks for stopping by, until next time, take care of you!
