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 Line; Galactic; 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!
