I needed a kick to start creating more Boy layouts rather than all girly ones. It is hard, I have two girls and two is more than one but I take so many photos of the little man that are all just sitting on the computer and need to be in Albums.
That’s why I decided I need to make an effort – so this is why I created this layout for Scrap the Boys. You have to scrap boys. This is this months moodboard… What do you think?
I pulled out my huge box of gelatos and created a inky textured back ground then stenciled some black Stayzon on ink through a Mr Hueys graph Stencil. I added some line work using the sprayer from my Dylusions Ink. I haven’t used it like that before and I love the way that it turned out.
For more texture I used thread and a large paper cluster made in the same colours. I added in the blue pattered paper for something a bit different and the gold drawings on it are different modes of Transport. I think that it also fits with the quote Young Souls Run Wild and Free. This quote also makes me think of Adventures hence my title. It was a last minute decision to make the layout look like a letter by adding Dear Son and Love Mum, one that I may change if I had to do it again. It works, it looks cute and it captures my hand writing on the layout but I’m not 100% loving it. Oh, and one think I learnt by doing this…Make sure your pen actually works before you start otherwise you have to commit and do it with a fine liner.
The other things I used, Charms Creation + sign but I turned it on the side to make a X. The Flair is from Studio Fourteen40.
