Oh, how I wanted to do something over the top & elaborate with this inspiration,
but the right combination of inspiration & photos never coalesced.
I did, however - at the eleventh hour - take this photo & couldn't resist scrapping it right away.
The yellow cookie frosting convinced me! I have a very masculine take on this challenge.
I initially tried texture paste but it really soaked under the edges of the stencil.
The gesso left a somewhat crisper image but kraft is definitely NOT a wet medium base!
I chose each man's star paper based on the teal papers I had plus in general on their taste in ties.
Other papers were chosen with men's garments in mind & I also included a stitched border.
That shirt paper was a must-have without ever thinking I would have a use for it, lol.
It is definitely perfect here!
I hope you will join in with us this month.
I always love the different directions the AS prompts take me!
