hipster wannabe....


This is a layout of my son Jonathan and his new glasses. I was really surprised he wanted these - but he insisted on getting them!! He thinks he looks hipster - I think he looks like a science nerd (which he is by the way!) but I've grown used to them and they fit him very nicely!! What's really hilarious is that his father got a pair of these when he first went in the Air Force and they were always called BC (birth control) glasses because they were so ugly!! I used my new February Studio Calico kit (which arrived on my doorstep yesterday!!) to make this. For the stamped image I used paint, which I haven't used in a very long time and I know why I stopped using it - it takes FOREVER to dry!! Though, I do like the effect so I will use it every once in a while!! I really love the alpha stamp that came in the add-on kit. I can see myself using this very very often! I made the layout for the 2/5 Sunday Sketch on the Studio Calico blog . TFL!!

  1. The paint looks great. I also used some last night, and it was really hard to wait.

  2. my hubs just got a pair that these remind me. They are nerdy, but somehow hip. How does that work anyway??? LOL, I think he looks great. I may have to lift your title! Love how you used the stamp and I'm jealous that you already got your kit!

  7. Looking forward to my Feb kit turning up - not that I've finished my January one as yet... Paint is fun to work with but I always have a couple of projects on the go so I can leave some to dry.
