Scrap the Boys June challenge
For the June challenge at Scrap the Boys, there is an awesome sketch to use:
I really loved working with this sketch, so very, very cool for a male layout, I can see myself doing another one. I chose these 3 mini prints of my husband and my son, which I took last Fathers Day, of them just sitting and being together enjoying each others company.
My layout background was created on Teresa Collins paper, to which I had tried doing some stencilling on for another layout, but made a mess of that, set it aside, but was able to pull it out and use it for this challenge -waste not, want not, especially Teresa Collins paper.
I then added more to the background with a TCW stencil and Tim Holtz inks and then splatters of dylusions ink. I added a heap of cotton thread and then built my layers with some old scrap Basic Grey and Kaisercraft captured memories cards. The words are cut out from Teresa Collins co-ordinating paper. The embellishing otherwise is kept pretty simple, only the naughts and crosses/plusses embellishments from Charms Creations, and a flair button.
I love the overall effect of this layout, so do my boys.
Thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave.
