Living a Boy’s Adventure Tale

The name of this piece is inspired by the A-ha song  “Living a Boy’s Adventure Tale” (I’m a big fan).  It is also my “nod” to the Land of Nod Studios blog.  The images of the boys are ones where Deborah colorized black and white photos and offered them as part of her Free Photo Fridays.  The boys have created a flying machine from a copper bathtub and umbrellas.  I rusted the brass ships wheel and anchor.  Later this week I’ll be posting a tutorial on rusting.
