2 Crafty Chipboard - His Smile

Hi there!
  Today sharing my newest creation, as part of
August DT work for 2 Crafty Chipboard 
A layout featuring my handsome teenager son 
& some great 2 Crafty Chipboard pieces...

2 Crafty Chipboard:

Aztec arrow
 His Smile - 1 of the new pieces for 2 Crafty August release
ATC - Tiny arrows
Light bulbs
Small Steampunk gears

Then layout came together relatively quickly
I started with a mixed media background....
by adding a coat of clear gesso, 
lots of stamping & a little colour..

Next I added some paper layers & my photo..
Then it was onto the chipboard pieces &
 sticking with the colour scheme!
I heat embossed all chipboard pieces 
with either teal, black or dark blue.....

Wanting a more rugged/uneven 
finish to the Steampunk corner, 
I decide to first pull away a thin layer 
of chipboard from only some parts
of the corner before embossing ...

For my title His Smile is one of 
2 Crafty August release 
I first given it a 2 coats of gesso, 
before heat embossing bottom 
half of the word Smile...

I am really happy with how my page has turned out!!!
