When I saw Finnabair’s challenge, I knew I had something that would work. My boy Maksim is so hard on his jeans, needless to say picking a pair of jeans ended up turning into clearing out multiple pairs with holes in the knees. I had many options to work with.


Then it was trying to find the right pic. Well, that was more difficult than I though, but I found one that would work of Maksim and Daddy in their matching Carhartts.


I actually took off the inner tag, the back label and, made some tags with the denim.


I knew what I was going to write but getting it “right” was going to be tough.


I tried to match the denim to match the Carhartt jackets  (pictures don’t show the effect). I  painted it with some Color Blooms Worn Leather to add more browns to the denim.


I used the bootcut tag from the jeans, along with the leather tag from the back side.


Lots and lots of layering today and no flowers.


I even added some frayed edges through out the layout.


I hope you enjoy this different layout from me. It was fun to make. For more awesome entries check out the link below.
