Black & White

The White With 1 challenge for this month is Liquorice so I went all out using a b&w photo too. I recently found this old pic on my 'puter and it reminded me of the furore Steve Irwin caused when he took his baby boy into the croc enclosure. 
Here my hubby has the boys at work and they are doing something dangerous. They lived through it completely unharmed and have a richer bond with their dad thanks to these kind of experiences. I guess sometimes family bonding moments need to happen out of the public eye, away from potential criticism from those who just don't get it. Anyhow...here's my page...


I used some Liquitex Matte Medium mixed with a little black acrylic ink, applied with a brayer, to get the look of fence palings on the background. Some gyprock tape, black craft paper, and WOW chipboard messy circles.
Stamping with bubble wrap too.

Thanks for dropping by
