Go Aussie Bro

After spending SO much time working on gifts for my family and friends and preparing for, enjoying and recovering from Christmas I'm finally back.

This year I am going to scrap for myself. That's the plan anyway.

I like so many others have so many pictures to scrapbook, yet find myself always working on projects for others.

So to get the ball rolling a page centred around a picture of my truly amazing, always loving brother.

So I started with this photo.

With a little editing I settled on this.

I used a sheet of Kaisercraft extreme paper, added my photo and then went to work heat embossing the chipboard arrow and corner piece in gloss black.

I decided to have a go at foil transfers to add some electric blue bling to them and quickly found out that my $2 bargain shop foil transfer kit was a bit hit and miss on top of glossy surfaces.

As far as the title I had some Lil Davis chip board alpha's in my stash which worked perfectly.

Alas there was no letter "B".

What to do, what to do I asked myself then it hit me. (ouch)

I painted a raw chipboard letter B with white acrylic paint and when it was dry I dressed it up with some more foil transfers.

I took to some crown bottle tops with a hammer and flattened them out. 

Such good therapy bashing these little guys,

then printed out some 1 inch circles with white text reading Fair, Dinkum and Mate!

The page still needed a little something so I added some black rhinestones to create a circular frame.

A little journaling and I was done.

Well That's all Folks
