Gangsta's Paradise

This is a picture I took in Hollywood, California of an awesome Rolls Royce! I've never seen one before , so I just had to snap a photo of it!

In staying with the gangster theme of the layout, I decided to make this photo black and white using the Picnik editing program. This is a free program and has so many wonderful options for making your pictures truly original. It even offers an upgrade to get even more great effects. If you are interested in trying it out, just click on this link...

This layout was done entirely in card board. I used two colors of paint in black and sage green. Between the layers of paint, I applied a Crackle Medium. This gives the paint on old finish.

The patterned papers are by K & Company.

The silver letters are by Fresh Paint and the Stone Look letters are by Sticko Inspirables.

Thanks for dropping in and next time, don't stay away so long!
