The Usual Suspects.

Not sure if this Layout is finished to be honest but can't see what else to add so I am leaving it as is. The Photos were of my three boys each in the Stocks at Corfe Castle.
I used Crafter's Workshop 6x6 Bricks Stencil to create the background along with texture paste mixed with Red and Brown Acrylic Paint which I pasted through the stencil and once dry I went round the bricks with black Pen and then some White Acrylic Paint to make them more brick like and stand out. And to border the photos to make them stand out more I used The wavy chequered stamp from Dyan's Around The Edge Stamp Set, I stamped image using Black Momento Ink but then went over the image with black pen to make it stand out more.
I then wanted to use the Title The Usual Suspects but didn't have a lot in the way of Alpha Stickers so it hasn't turned out as well as I would have liked but it will do. Before sticking the title in place I gessoed a bit of the background.
