Hello there friends! It’s Kylie back with you today and I am sharing a new layout I have completed featuring the Boys Rule collection. As I have mentioned before, I had been hanging on and hanging on to my stash of this gorgeous collection as it has always been a favourite.However since my sons album hadn’t been updated in a little while, I figured it was perfect for creating some pages with.
I decided to work with a white background and add some mixed media, although I did add the ‘FUN AND GAMES’ paper as a border by trimming 1 cm off each edge of the white. Some clear Gesso was added to my background and I used some watercolour sprays from my craft stash to paint a lovely aqua/blue messy circle to my page. Once dry, I added some texture stamps in darker blue over the top randomly.
The fun circular cut file I used was by The Cut Shoppe and I have used lots of varying papers from the 6 x 8 paper pad, followed by backing each ‘slice’ with white paper.I adhered the circle to the middle of my page with foam tape so that it sat up from the background a little.
I’ve used two photos for my layout. My son always asks if he can take a silly photo after I have taken a sensible one. Every time without fail! So I have printed the silly photo slightly smaller and tucked it in behind our sensible one. I’ve added some of the typed phrase stickers under the ‘Mr Fantastic’ title as a sub-title as well as some aqua cotton from my craft stash for more texture.
I decided to add a machine stitched border around the edge of the white card stock. I added it around 1 cm in from the edge to balance my layout nicely.
The chipboard title was also a favourite and I have added more aqua cotton as well as the cute camera from the die cuts.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today. I hope you have enjoyed seeing my latest project!
