There is never a dull moment at our home with a budding engineer. Aaron, who is only 15 years, is always tinkering with something. I love that he built a programmable, crawling spider robot to entertain the kids at his robotics Halloween party. It also entertained our cats as well. Here is the photo:
I wanted something special for this picture, so I pulled out my Creative Embellishments. Using one of their frames always makes a page. I left the frame raw, but sprayed Heidi Swapp metallic color shine (bronze, tinsel & gold) on the CE gears and spare parts. The letters are by Pink Paisley. The title really came together when I used Cheery Lynn's "Amazing" die-cut. For the background I used Creative Embellishment's circuit stamp around some webbed pattern paper and rub distress ink around the edges. I also splattered the Heidi Swapp color shine mentioned above and added cherry red in the lower right to compliment the spider's red legs. The triangles are a Hero Arts stencil with Dreamweaver's silver texture paste. The fun robot stamp is by Tim Holtz and the robot cat is by The Alley Stamps. As a finishing touch the copper tags are ones I found in Target's $1 bin and I added duct-tape-like washi around the edges.
