Angelic . . . . NOT

Today I've had my teeth into another layout.  Here are two little rascals, Jack and Harry -  my English girlfriend's grandsons.  This photo is a real miracle as little Harry cannot sit still for more than 2 seconds, and I am told big brother Jack insists on poking his tongue out for photos.  Here they are posing for their Christmas photo, so I hope I have done the photo justice.

Here I used two of the same photo, the 1st in colour and the 2nd black & white.  I started by distressing my Kaisercraft paper, then started my layers.  I used old music paper, burlap, drywall tape & muslim under the photos, then added lots of handmade burlap roses, random flowers from my stash, all on top of a lovely little doily.  I've also used lots of  Dusty Attic chippies, DA0729 Branches & Berries, DA0476 Mini words #2, DA0435 Decorative Flourish, which have been finished with gesso, paint, texture paste, stickles & glossy accents.  I've finished it all off with some pearls and charms.

This is the Dusty Attic monthly sketch I have followed.  I will be entering this layout into the following challenges:
Dusty Attic - monthly sketch layout

Thank you for visiting, I hope all my friends in Britain like what I've done with their precious boys.  I hope you all have a very happy and safe Christmas.
