Boys will be boys…

Boys will be boys… says it all. No offend but girls are different. Boys are harsh and tough, it’s sort of a masculine thing, isn’t it? So I tried to be harsh and tough this time:

boys will be boys…

For the background I made a paper collage which I colored with distress ink. I stamped with acrylics some texture stamp. I covered the page with beeswax.

upper embellishment

The upper embellishment is made on texture treads with UTEE black and white mixed to grey. The text is on recycled packaging paper.

stamp and lower embellishment

The lower embellishment is also UTEE black and white kept separately made with a mold. Stamp is Stampotique originals, colored and distressed. Just because boys will be boys…

I am sharing it with Stampotique Designers challenge: Masculine.

    This is just AMAZING work, Ruth! So much texture, so many elements adding interest, such a great stamp for your BOYS WILL BE BOYS project! All beautifully choreographed and definitely masculine! Another winner in my book! Thanks so much for participating in the Stampotique Designers’ Challenge again this week!

    I find it’s really hard to do ‘masculine’ artwork but you are clearly great at it! This is an awesome piece and very inspirational. I really like the black/white/kraft colour palette and the grungyness!
