I really struggle when it comes to boy layouts, so I went back to basics with this one. I went with circles and based my page around that. Here's how I came up with this page
First I sprayed some white mist and splatters on my background page. I then used a mask and texture paste just to create a bit of dimension.
Using the Persuasion Blooms embossing folder I embossed two pieces of paper.
I then lined them up to make one long strip
Using a blue inkpad I very lightly rubbed over the embossed parts of the paper just to make it "pop" a little. This can now be stuck to your page.
By making some banners you will cover up the join and it will look like one complete strip.
Next I grabbed my trusty circle nesting dies. I really cant live without these. I use them for cards and scrapbooking. I cut my photos into circles using the largest die.
Then using the second largest die and the biggest die together I created a frame to go around the photos
You can now start placing all your pieces onto your page. To make a couple of extra embellishments, I rubbed some rub-on sayings onto some accetate and then using the circle nesting dies I cut them out.
Here's another look at the finished page
Thanks for letting me share. Until next time
