This is my layout submitted at Sketches in Thyme for their Challenge #96.
This is the sketch:

This is what I created:
Rather than add the chevrons across the page, I decided to use them only on the right side.

This is our daughter and grandson after the July 4th Parade in 2010.  Dylan was hot and cranky and didn't really want to take a photo, but we coerced him!  :)

Supplies used:
Paper: K&Co.
Metallic Rub-ons
Chevrons: Hand Made
Squares Stencil
Shimmer Mists: Tattered Angels
Title Sticker: K&Co.
Pop Dots
July 4th Sticker: Karen Foster Design
Misting Inks

The edges of the chevrons were distressed and rubbed with metallic.
Gesso was slathered over the stencil and when it dried I used two different metallics to rub lightly on them.

 This is my creation of various items, which were covered with inks and gesso mixed together.

Both stickers were adhered with pop dots.  The edges were coated with metallic.

This is a closer look at the upper portion.

 The metallic rub ons were used to "tone down" all the blue, which didn't work so well and decided to leave it as it was.

Thanks for stopping by.
Hope you like my layout.
