Indecision is a common occurrence in our house.  My son has acquired this attribute from his father.  It takes them both FOREVER to make a decision.  I can not remember how long we stood in this aisle at Wal-Mart.  I may have blocked it from my memory.  I, on the other hand, do things on impulse.  The quicker the better.  
I just love how this photo captures my son intently researching this Nerf gun.  The colors in the Echo Park papers worked perfectly to bring my rather dark, semi-blurry photo to life.  

I decided that papers from both "Scoot" and "All About A Boy" from Echo Park would help liven up my photo and they both work together really well.  Then I decided to try using Prima's Donna Downey 12x12 Art Stencil.  
CONFESSION:  This is my first attempt as using any type of Art Stencil or Mask.  I dug out my old colored ink pads (Tim Holtz distress stains would work perfectly!) and gave it a whirl!  I actually loved how it came out!  Of course, you can find all these products by clicking on the description or by heading over to Eclectic Paperie.

Once my attempt at masking was complete, I layered papers, stickers and chipboard.  At the end, I added some machine stitching, a Flair button and Studio Calico Wood Veneers for detail. 

Thank you for looking.


PS:  I must confess that I did not work on this project alone:o)
