This is my take on August challenge at Scrap The Boys, which asked to profile our boys. I used a photo of my oldest, playing with his smartphone, else what?....LOL
Like many other boys at his age, he just loves all tech things - pc, smartphones, tablets, any gadgets, and the title says, in Hebrew - Gadgets.
Going along with the masculine tech theme, I made a mixed media background, with lots of mists (13@arts Ayeeda chalk blue light and chalk turquoise, Lindy's Stamp Gang moon shadow mist treasure iland aqua, Ranger's Perfect Pearls mist copper), and Tim Holtz distress stain antiqued bronze. I worked with TCW stencils (stacked triangles and quatrefoil reversed),  and with several dies (Sizzix TH weathered clock and gadget gears; Memory Box tessatina border). I also used some fab gears chipboards from Creative Embellishments.
Here are some close-ups on the details:

Thank you for taking the time and visiting my blog. I appreciate your comments very much.
