Today I'm sharing my latest work for All About Scrapbooks, my absolute favourite scrappy store! This layout features some papers from the last Basic Grey Range ever created - the B Side.
Oh how I love this range!
Fun, bright colours, with lots of great sayings.
I created a couple of pages with this range a couple of months ago, and I still had plenty left, so thought I'd have a go at using some more up.
As this range is typically aimed at a tween girl, I decided to throw in an extra challenge for myself, and create a layout featuring my son. You see this range has some great yellows and teals, and they were screaming out at me to be used. I dug around and found grey woodgrain paper from Simple Stories. Perfect, as woodgrain has a masculine feel.
I swiped gesso over my background and then added spritz and random stamping.
I then layered up with embellishments and paper off cuts.
I used 2 Crafty Chipboard for my title (I actually chopped up a title, and already have a plan to use the other half - yep no wastage here). I also used 2Crafty chipboard to highlight my photo, and to add texture to the background.
I created the black circles by making my own stamp.
I just added paint to an old toilet roll end, and used it as a stamp, Cool huh??
And because I don't like to clean up unless I HAVE to, I created a Project Life Spread out of the rest of the paper from the range.
I'm really trying to keep up. Only a few weeks behind at the moment. I love how bright and colourful this week is - and I've included the pink!
Here's the left side:
I wanted to include more 'Sports Day' pics but I didn't want it to take up any more spots in the week, so I added one of my flaps:
And here's the right side:
And that's it from me! Well for now anyway.....
