#love | Boys Rule Scrapbook Kit Club

Hi there!

I have a new layout and sketch to share with you for my latest DT assignment with Boys Rule Scrapbook Kit Club

Here is the sketch.

As you can see, I am a little circle happy right now!

Here is my take on the sketch...

I started my page by layering my photo onto punched and torn strips of paper, that were inked with black ink. Next I created a backdrop for this focal point by adding some water colour paints in a few splotches around the page, then I stamped randomly with a mesh stamp and StazOn ink, and finally I added paint circles using a variety of sizes of lids as stamps.  I like to keep a random supply of these in my craft area.  As a final step for my background, I added black Mr. Huey's (from my stash) and some of the gold Smooch Spritz from the kit.

Next I added some of the gold rubons around my page, I love that they are slightly distressed looking.  And don't those fun little glasses look cute!

This little plastic clip is perfect on my photo, it was a little slippy so I added some Washi tape on the back to hold it in place.  PS I seriously love that little face!

I trimmed off one of the phrase strips from one of the patterned papers and adhered it to the bottom of my page.  I then added a journaling tag from the ephemera package, and a little banner clip, as well as another rubon.   

Lastly, I added my title with the great Simple Stories alpha stickers, and a few Doodlebug enamel triangles that I had left over from the last kit.

Supply list:  Kit contents - Echo Park patterned paper, die cuts and packaging used for photo mat; Smooch Spritz in gold; Kaisercraft gold rubons; misc. cardstock, glasses, Simple Stories alphas, plastic and wire clips.

Other: Decoart and Anita's acrylic craft paint, Leow's water colour paints, black StazOn ink, Tim Holtz tiny attacher, black Mr. Huey's mist, Doodlebug enamel triangles (from prior kit); Bo Bunny mesh stamp, Staedtler black felt tip pen.

Thank you for visiting today, I hope to see you play along with us at  Boys Rule Scrapbook Kit Club!
