Shine!

Alexander is my eldest son and I think, just so photogenic.  He's also more than happy to pose for me on occassion, and I managed to capture his amazing smile when we were over in Hockley Woods during Autumn last year.
Studio Challenges have a fabby "texture" challenge, so not only did I use painting, but I had my first ever go at texture paint too!  So that added to the corregated card, rope and cork, I think I've got this challenged covered!

This challenge ends on 14th february, so still plenty of time to enter.

I'm also entering this layout into ARTastic's February "paint" challenge as I don't tend to ever paint my layouts and the brush strokes inspired me.
