Hey crafty Paperlovers,

Welcome and so happy to see you on the Cocoa Vanilla blog today! It’s Josefine here and I’m sharing a new layout with you today. I got to work with the amazing collection “No Limits. I am so surprised by this stunning boys collection. I really love the color combinations and the cool vibe!
I grab a 12×12 watercolor paper and choose three colors of distress oxide. The colors I used are, faded jeans, mustard seed and spiced marmalade. I placed an ink pad on my white background and make a horizontal line. I do this with all three colors. Then I take a brush and blend the colors with each other. I splash some more with the colors and water and then let it dry by air. By splashing with water and then dabbing it dry with a piece of kitchen paper you create a cool water color effect.
I use a cutfile by Paige Evans called “Fantastic” as part of my title. I cut out the cutfile with my Cricut Maker and backed it with design paper. I color the alphas with the distress oxide “faded jeans” and then I stitch them with blue sewing thread on my cutfile. The stitch details give my layout more dimensions.

I cut pattern paper to size and placed it behind the photo of my son with his cool looking face. On top of the photo, I placed a frame from the Die-cuts elements figures. I select some more figures and make a cluster on the right side of the photo. Some die-cuts I give a blue stitching details.
I cut a few more stars from the fabulous pattern paper and spread them around the layout. I use another second cutfile from Paige Evans “Clouds” and use one cloud I back it with pattern paper, stitch some details with the blue sewing thread and place it behind the picture. I placed a few more puffy stars and planets here and there and finally I give my layout some white splatter with white gesso.
I hope I was able to inspire you with this boys layout and give you some new ideas. Of course, I hope to see you back here on the blog next time with a new project! Can’t wait to see your beautiful projects on the Cocoa Vanilla FB groep! I wish you a very happy and crafty day friends!
