Best Friends - My Scraps & More Sketch #95

Hey everyone! When I first saw the sketch over at My Scraps & More Sketches the 1st thing that came to mind was retro. So I found this selfie picture of my son with one of his friends and went with the retro theme...kinda!
I used the Cosmo Cricket Cogsmo collection that is actually a little boys robot themed paper and embellie collection. I got this paper collection when my son was little thinking I would use it for one of his little boy pages. Who knew I would end up using it for when he was a teen
On the background I scrapped some Gesso with a credit card to tone the paper down some and then flicked some Beetle Black Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels and then tapped the page on its side to create a few drip runs with the mist. I cut the hand drawn circle out on my Silhouette Cameo.

For my flower cluster I used some retro like circles and then layered up some retro like flowers I found in my stash and I couldn't find the right color blue flowers in my stash so I used some white ones and sprayed them with some Vintage Blue Plain Jane Simple Sheer by Tattered Angels. Then airbrushed them with some sprinkles of black Copic Markers.

One of the challenges over in the My Scraps & More forum was to used an alpha that is at least 2 years old. No problem! Almost my entire stash of alphas are at least 5 years  So I found these 2 Thickers alphas in my stash that I had in the light blue and the black and came up with the great idea of layering them up on top of one another to give them a shadowed effect. I kinda like how it looks.

I did some random stapling in the corners, popped up some random circles and then outlined them with a black pen. I used the lid to my black pen and stamped it onto a ink pad and then stamped it randomly around on my page.
