Hey Hello Paperlovers, Welcome to the Cocoa Vanilla Studio blog today! It’s Josefine here with new scrapbook Inspiration for you. I certainly can’t get enough of this amazing collection “No Limits” The colors in this collection inspire me. This layout is quite simple and easy to make and I am happy with the result. I choose a sweet photo of my son when he was a little younger. I cut out the photo in a circle. I used my circle cutter from We R Memory keepers. I cut out two more circles from the beautiful patterned paper. I stitch the edges with brown sewing thread by using my sewing machine.
I draw a circle in the center of the layout and with Distress Oxide I created a mixed media background. I used a background stamp that looks like a splatter and stamp several times with the distress oxide in a circle on the background.I mixed the ink with water to create a watercolor look. With a thin round brush I splatter with the ink on the mixed media background. I really love the effect of splatters on my layout. The colors I used are “faded Jeans” and “Stormy sky”
I placed the patterns design paper circles in the center of the mixed media background and the photo on top. I used 3D tape so I can easily slide the stars between the paper layers.
I fussy cut several stars from the pattern paper “Nebula” from the No Limits collection. I attached the stars with 3D tape. I like the way the stars. stand out a little from the background. I mix the white gesso with water and with a thin brush I make white gesso splatters on my layout. The little puffy stars are adorable and great to combine on this layout.
I wanted some extra ink splatter on my layout and used both colors “faded jeans” and “Stormy sky” distress oxides. For the title “Boys will be Boys” I used leftovers from different alpha sets from my own stash. I kind of kept the colors in the title that are also reflected in the stars. I love the playful effect.
I hope I was able to inspire you with this Boys will be Boys layout and I want to thank you for visiting the blog today and hope to see you again next time with a new project with the beautiful collections designed by Cocoa Vanilla Studio!
Wishing you a crafty day friends!
