ACF Challenge 64 Little Boy
This week the hosts at Art Creations Friday provided this beautiful boy for our pleasure. He is just so cute, all he really needs is a nice frame. But where's the fun in that. I chose to gather a collection of little boy "stuff" around him, cherished things that might have been in his pockets.
The stuff came from Gooogle, the ribbon and clipping mask from Cottage Arts--a site with great scrapbooking kits and ideas, tutorials and free stuff too. Go visit them sometime. The text and postage stamps texture is brom Boccacino at T4L and the background paper and the button from Songbird Avenue, a place I found that produces one digital kit every month, created by volunteer artists, and on sale only for a limited time. Each month, the proceeds are designated to a different charity. The kit I bought is called Port Au Prince, and the proceeds went to emergency relief for Haiti.
Wow, that was a lot of words! There's been a discussion recently at Digital Whisper about giving credit for the elements we use in our work. I am in favor of that--my work woud be greatly diminished if I didn't have the wonderful materials created by others to use as my paints and brushes.
Hope you like my little guy.
Thanks for stopping by.
