REALITY HAS LIMITS {sa crafters}

hello scrappy friends!

this is my second project for SA CRAFTERS and i can honestly say that i LOVE their products! the designs, the shapes and the masks - everything works perfectly together and helps you to create your very own masterpiece!

for this layout i decided to work with last summer's pictures of THEO. he is really into the TRANSFORMERS now. the autobots are his heroes and more than everything in this world he would love to meet OPTIMUS PRIME. 
when we were on vacation last summer, he found this graffiti on the street (the logo of the decepticons - the evil robots) and his first thought was "look, mommy, they are real!". he was so pleased and excited, and being a 4-year-old this was the only prove he needed to believe that they are walking among us.


for my layout i used FANCY PANTS DESIGNS "collecting moments" paper line and DCWV "tattered time" mini paper stack. after distressing the edges of the HOMEWORK pattern paper, i mat it onto a black cardstock. using SA CRAFTERS 6x6" brick wall stencil and modelling paste, i created the brick wall pattern on my background. then i stamped the gears pattern using DEEP RED STAMP and spattered TATTERED ANGELS "black olive" GLIMMER GLAZE

after everything has dried, i begin arranging my design. i altered the chipboard bricks {SA CRAFTERS chipboard brick wall no. 2} with VERSAMARK ink and DONNA SALAZAR black embossing powder. i didn't want cover the complete bricks, to give them worn out, distressed look.

i used FLOURISH WITH A BLING bella rhinestone flourishes black to frame one of my pictures and FWAB adhesive rhinestones 100 pack black to decorate my layout. 

to embellish my pictures i used various pattern papers from the same collection and die cuts. i die cut a cardstock edge using TIM HOLTZ "scrollwork" on the edge die and i coloured it with RANGER "jet black" archival ink.

i printed the two TRANSFORMERS logos and the title on glossy picture paper and carefully fussy cut them to use them on my page.

and finally i added one of the wooden tags from the SENTIMENTS set 1 just as it was. i think it fits my colour palette perfectly and the saying matches exactly the meaning of my pictures!

i hope you enjoyed today's post!

with this layout i'm entering the FWAB january sketch challenge:

have a fun scrappy week!

hugs 'n smiles,
