Art of Living Dangerously - Authentique

Yeah, that's my man touching up a painting that is already hanging on the wall. Where my kids walk by. All. The. Time.   Asking for trouble, if you ask me...  but I bit my tongue and grabbed the camera, ha ha!

Authentique's "Original" collection is perfect for masculine pages - you couldn't ask for better colours.  The Canvas Corp tags pair nicely with it, too.

I added a few rough stitches in heavy twine - I like how it looks with distressed papers.

I placed my title on one of the lighter papers, then cut around it and popped it up with Zap Dots to make it stand out.  Then I tucked a little May Arts ribbon in with it, for some added texture.

The story:
