I do not know why but I really struggled with the theme this month - I think really I just had too many stamps to pick from and too many ideas going around in my head so in the end I just decided to go with whatever ended up on my piece of gelli card!

I forgot to take pictures this month as I was going along but basically I did a gelli print with the brick wall stencil. ( paper artsy chalk paints) I wanted it to say boys will be boys  but I wanted something that the boys could be hanging from or sitting on and in the end I used the random shapes that are on a new design club stencil and some grunge paste.  I stamped into it whilst wet with BOY from the word chain set no 10 and an S from the same set. - Put your stamp into water straight away though!  I used the new wordpress letters  for the other words.

I masked off the birds and strings from the boy  and birds stamp and hung him off the edge  the jumping boy is from the wheelie men and boys stencil and the other boys are from the wee folk set 

I coloured in the stamping in the grunge paste with a brown spectrum aqua pen
