Boys Rule | You Rock layout | Sue Plumb

Hi everyone! Sue here with you today to share my latest boy layout using the awesome ‘You Rock’ collection. This page features a photo of my boys that really doesn’t have any deep or meaningful significance. It was simply one of those everyday moments. You know the ones – when you turn your camera towards your children and fire off a quick snap just to capture them as they are. And as important as it is to capture milestones and memorable events, I think it’s equally important to just capture moments like this.

I decided to create a mixed media based page for this one. I started with white cardstock and applied some layers – blue watercolour; colour paste through a stencil; then some stamping. With all the mediums applied to my background, it was time to turn my attention to my ‘You Rock’ stash.

I gathered up some papers to create a layered mat for my photo. I used pieces cut from the In LineGalactic; and Night Sky papers; which I topped with some frayed gauze and a frame from the chipboard accents sticker sheet. To get the best use of the frame, I cut it in half and tucked the two halves on either side of my mounted photo.

Now it was time to turn to the embellishments. I fussy cut a few stars from the Starshine paper, which I placed to form a visual triangle around my photo. Next, I added stickers from the accessory sticker sheet – the large starburst label above my photo; a small label tucked into the layers behind my photo; and a small banner beneath my photo. I also added the rad and you rock phrase stickers.

On the left side of the chipboard frame, I added some messy grey cotton thread, topped with a flair button; whilst below the photo I added the navy awesome label from the die cut ephemera pack to compliment the you rock sticker I had already placed there.

To finish off my page, I added small torn pieces of a couple of the washi tape stickers to add further depth to the layers surrounding my photo. I also added some splatters of black mist and stamped the date.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today so I could share this with you. I will be back again in a couple of weeks time with another project to share. Until then, happy scrapping!

About the Author:

Sue is a stay at home mum of 3 (daughter Brielle, and twin sons Hunter and Kaden) and lives in the beautiful Glasshouse Mountains in Queensland. She began scrapping in 2008, shortly after her daughter was born. After the premature birth of her sons in 2012, she took 18 months off scrapping to concentrate on family and since her return says she is enjoying it more than ever. (Her biggest issue now is finding quiet time!) She currently designs for challenge blogs, and has had work published in magazines on numerous occasions, including the cover. She is also a 2017 Scrapbooking Memories magazine Creative Team member. Although primarily a 12×12 scrapper, she says she loves to dabble a bit with pocket style scrapping, art journaling, and the odd canvas and card too. She best describes her style as "versatile" - ranging from clean and linear one day, to messy mixed media the next.
