~ Brother from another mother~

This is my oldest son Jarrod (left) and one of his best friends Ross. They've been in the same class at school since Grade 2 and have become very close. This year they've started calling each other "Brother from another Mother" as a joke.
I did this LO to use as another example for my D.I.Y. challenge I'm hosting at Why don't you come along and join the fun.

First I made my own backround paper by using 3 diff colour mists against Tim Holtz masks. I then used bubble wrap and craft paint on the corners. I got my inspiration for this from one of my favourite artists Finabair at

I took a clear cuts frame by little yellow bicycle and cut the centre out and then divided the frame in 4 to fit the picture and make it a little more abstract.

Here are a few more close-ups of the paint and 3D embellies I hand cut from the BO BUNNY pp I used.
