This is a LO from Handmade Hannah grab box, I've used some of the crate paper toybox and portrait papers and also echo park country drive.  The die cuts and stickers are crate paper portrait and toybox and the alphabet is pink paislees mistables.  I started this with my shot of my youngest playing with his new lego fire station - lego is big in my house and this was his birthday present from us and there were LOTS of bags, but he happily sat down and started building it all.  I layered my papers up and marked the area where I put them in pencil.  Next I used my prima brick mask and sponged gesso (also in Hannah's shop) onto the paper, once dried (I did help it along with a heat gun) I then added some splats of red glimmer mist (this is also what I spritzed onto the lego title).  Whilst it was completing it's drying I inked and ruffled and stitched the edges of my papers - I put the photo in one of the toybox die cuts and stitched some zig zag on that and added a year sticker tab.  Once dry I put my papers back where they were meant to be, and then started adding the embellishment die cuts, and some pompom ribbon and a maya road doily. I stuck the fire engine and helicopter and number six down with foam pads to give a little more dimension here are a few more close ups - with all the die cuts this was quite a quick LO for me...and I still managed to get some paint and mists on it :)
