Wide Awake (#186 Creative Scrappers)

Hello everybody!  I hope this post finds you all happy and healthy.  Today I want to share a lo based on sketch #186 at Creative Scrappers
Here is the sketch:

And here is my take on it:

For the background paper, a raised Swiss Dot, I sanded the edges and inked with ColorBox Atlantic Blue.  I also distressed the paper strips and inked with the same color.  I set my eyelets and laced the skinny blue and the wide white ribbon above the picture.  The word "wide" are letters from an alpha punch-out set I have.  The word "awake" is stripped chip chipboard from lil davis.  To acheive the color I used a paintbrush dipped in Adirondack Color Wash in Sailboat Blue.  Once that was semi-dry, I sprayed some Gold Glimmer Mist from ART-C and let it dry.  Then I used the Atlantic Blue ink on the edges.  For a final touch, I adhered gem clusters around the photo.

I love this picture of my little one.  He was about 12 hours old here.  Of all my children, he was the most alert so soon after birth.

Thanks for looking!
