Just Hanging Out - Scrap the Boys

There is something about messy grungy boy pages that I have fun creating. Maybe it's getting to make a mess that I like so much, I really don't know but I have always really enjoyed creating them and am usually more drawn to them in galleries too. So when I saw that Scrap the Boys had this grungy/messy challenge on their blog I just had to do it.
I started out with a solid piece of red cardstock and with a stencil I airbrushed with a black Copic marker to get the black dots in the background. Then with the same stencil I used some Gesso, slightly moved the stencil to smear the Gesso some as I didn't want it to be in a perfect dots like the Copic black dots. I then flicked some black and red color shine.  Inked up the edges, ripped it a little and did lots of distressing. Distressing can be soooo destressing sometimes!
