A Big Boy’s Look

A Big Boy's Look

Before heading to the party, celebrating my nephew’s birth, I had the pleasure of spending the morning with my sister and the early afternoon with her boys: Asaf and Ori.

I had fun playing with them while their mother, my sister, was getting ready.

This beautiful photo of Ori was taken by his 7-year-old brother, Asaf, who loves to take pictures too.

I can’t help but admiring the gesture Asaf captured in this photo. Such a big boy’s look!

Products Used



  1. For the distressed background I used a good old bubble-wrap. I just squirted some acrylic paint (which is very thick and has good quality) onto a paper plate and flattened it with a scrap paper. Then I dabbed the bubble wrap in it and “stamped” it on my background.
  2. Next I took some white watercolor and flooded it with water, then I dabbed a brush in the diluted watercolor and tapped the edge of my brush, while holding it above my background sheet.
  3. Then I assembled the rest of my layout.


  1. I stamped the title with the letter stamp set and assembled word by word, to make sure the letters are aligned.
  2. Then, to add some texture and volume, I filled in the letters with Stickles. I think that Glossy Accents or a similar product can add even more volume and assimilate epoxy letters. Next time…
