Camp Scrap - Misting


Perfect time to play...I finally got my new Lucky 8 punch, and wanted to test it out.  This is how I punched the ivory page.  Then, since this is the July Fourth week (and some inspiration from soapHousemama), I decided to work with red, white, and blue.

I cut several stars out of leftover packaging, laid them out and then misted the layout with Dylusions "Melted Chocolate" - yummy!

A little detailing with my black pen.

I was trying to decide what I wanted to do, and chose to do a bit of paper weaving with my patterned papers. I found these two great photos of my sons, that they had shot, and really liked the black and white feel.  I added red, white and blue buttons, tabs on the photos. some waffle paper, and the title "Brothers".

Another package in the mail this week from GaucheAlchemy - some punchinella that I had ordered :)

So, after I added some barn door and broken china distress stains to the waffle paper, I just had to add in some of the black punchinella.

I decided I wasn't really happy with how bright the buttons were, so just dabbed them with some Picket Fence Distress Stain, and I like the white wash look to them now.

Tucked in a small tag with some journaling about each of them right now in their lives, behind their photo.

Final step was adding some white rub ons, and here it is ..."Brothers." I had a lot of fun playing with the mists and the stains, and some new products, and keeping with a red, white and blue theme!
