I think this is a typical image of almost any teenage boy! All the papers plus pre coloured image are from Pretty Tuff cd from Polkadoodles - I've simply inked a little, distressed and added some recycled twine (came from a bundle of magazines!).

I've made some faux tiny brads buy using a Sharpie marker and then dotting liquid pearls over the top - quick and easy although you do have to remember that they need to dry!

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

The Sweet Stop Sketches: Sketch followed
Paper Minutes: Children's Birthday
Crafty Card Makers: Recycle (string from a stack of magazines)
Quirky Crafts: Attitude
Kraftin' Kimmie: Make It Masculine

  • All papers and image: Pretty Tuff from Polkadoodles
  • Twine: Recycled from pile of magazines

Great image Ruth! I love the coloured papers and he sure does look moody. I had 2 of them a long time ago. All grown up now :)
