TOO BLESSED TO BE STRESSED

 This layout is going to be part of an album that I give to my son, Lee, for Christmas. The photo of him was taken while he was at work. It looks as though things were kind of crazy that day. I think he was stressed, don't you? .... LOL I just had to scrapbook this photo. Techniques used here are masking, 3-D work, painting, distressing and inking. The masks used here are by Prima and Crafter's Workshop. I also used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and some acrylic paint from the craft store. I had to mix a couple of colors to get what I wanted, then paint over the first layer with a darker blue. The jute twine has been in my stash forever. 
Here is a closeup of the 3-D work. Thanks for all of your comments!
