There is something so special about a boys love for his Mom. It is a combination of snuggles and responsibility. This boy things he should be taking good care of me, but he runs to me for every hurt and sorrow. I hold these moments close because I know the day is coming when he will no longer need his "Ouchie's" kissed.
~ Sweet is a boys love ~
My inspiration for this layout came from Keren Tamir's (blog post here) recent layout for Creative Scrapper's. I am so intrigued by the chunky layers and industrial look of the distressing.
Although I knew how I wanted this layout to look I didn't have time for the layers of mist and ink such a look takes. Instead I turned to my stash of Rub-Ons. I layered 7-Gypsies gears and clocks in the corners of my paper and overlayed that with a large, gold rub-on by Glitz. To keep the rub-ons from peeling off my page I covered them with a layer of Glue Stick. After that had dried I heavily inked the edges of the layout by directly applying the ink pad to the paper.
For a little something extra I layered washi tape and rub-ons with Film Strip Transparency and MME brads. Don't you know it, while I was inking my page I left a finger print. I quickly added a few more and embellished them with Dimensional Enamel. The purple and black medallions are Glitz rub-ons that I fussy cut from the sheet of images. I rubbed the backs with Glue Stick, and adhered them with hot glue and wooden buttons in place of dimensional adhesive.
