Scrap the Boys October challenge - Smile
For the October challenge at Scrap the Boys, the challenge is to be inspired by this moodboard:
I love the colours in this moodboard, great combination. I was inspired by the colours, the arrow and the woodgrain.
I chose a photo of my nephew Ethan for this challenge.
For the background, I put the Coredinations cardstock over the top of a woodgrain stencil, and rubbed over it, to expose a subtle woodgrain look to the cardstock. I also stamped using an arrow stamp.
I used a variety of Project Life journaling cards and patterned paper under the photo, and then added the embellishments - which include a chipboard arrow negative, a canvas cog and a Charms Creations heavenly heart. In both of the detail photos, you can also see a scattering of beads.
The other cluster I created also had arrows - wood veneer, a wood veneer word, which is my title, and a sticker, along with another cog and more beads.
I really like the overall effect of the layout, and of course my nephew is so cute.
Thanks for looking at my layout, and for any comments you may leave.
