Masculine Page With Feathers

My son, Chris Huntsman with his dang cute boys! 
This page was so much fun to do since I tried so many fun techniques.
I water and ink washed the back ground wood paper, 
then stitched and distressed the edges,
used Cricut to cut a background overlay,
which I inked with pigment inks and dauber
to achieve an ombre effect.
The same inking technique was used to achieve the 
shaded hue on the 'also, I love you'.
And then more stitching right thru the middle of the phrase.
Rock-n-roll technique was used on the fussy cut flowers.
I used this same inking style on the feathers-
choosing both colonial white and kraft paper
added to the uniqueness of each feather.
Add a staple and tie on some bronze thread-
ta-DA! A page to show off four awesome guys!

Decker Family Reunion 2013

St. George, Utah July 9-16 2013
Stayed at The River Home

 The adventures to be found outside kept the guys occupied for hours each day. Once they discovered there were lizards and toads the heat did not seem to bother them much.

 Rachel calculated that Sofie spent over nine hours swimming on the first day. She quit counting after that.
 The whole week was filled with family, cousins, swimming, and old fashioned fun!
 Our last day together we had a scavenger hunt which led us to our great looking t-shirts (thank you Rachel!). Due to varied reasons not all are pictured here. Jason is the one you can't see cause he is behind the lens. Thank you Jason.
It is very difficult to capture the perfect group photo. Please tell me which one you like best.
