I don't know about you, but I sometimes have trouble creating a boy's layout. I love the flowers, bling and all the prettiness you can create for the feminine layouts. So I decided to come up with something a little different. Below is a layout that I did for my grandson using tags. I cut out various tags in different sizes from different papers and layered them across the top of the page and below the pictures. It was quite easy and it gives a different look to a layout.
I also stamped a border stamp around the outside edge, added a few pieces of ephemera here and there as well as string in some of the tag holes.
Here is another layout that I used for another grandson. For this one, I created a paper collage using various papers from my scrap box along with a piece of burlap that I used as a paper. I did add a couple of rustic flowers (oops - couldn't resist) along with some metal pieces. Again very simple.
I am currently working on a mixed media "Finnibair" inspired canvas. It will be posted next week and will include a brief tutorial.
Until next time,
"My husband lets me have all the scrappin' (stampin') supplies I can hide."
