Hanging Out Layout – Dusty Attic

Hey there everyone, today I am up on the Dusty Attic blog with a layout I created of my 3 boys playing video games. As a mumma to a 15yr old boy, I find it very difficult to capture any photos of my oldest and the only way I can get it is if he doesn’t know I’m taking photos sooooo I was in stealth mode when I captured this photo. And extra bonus…. all the boys are together.

The background cardstock is from 7 Dots Studio – Paint Chips range and stamped randomly using Tim Holtz Reflections stamp set and black archival ink.

I used PaperArtsy Fresco Chalk Acrylic Paint in Inky Pool to colour the stars and title chipboard. I inked the edges with black archival ink and then used watered down white and black gesso to splatter all over. I also used Lindy’s Magical Shakers to colour some white cardstock, I stamped randomly and then adhere to the back of the stars.

I painted the Broken Bits Number pieces with white gesso and then sanded the edges. I also painted the back of my light bulb with some gold paint. For the underground network large chipboard, I trimmed it down and painted with black gesso. I then used Liquid Pearls to create the look of a circuit board as the photo is all about gaming.

Boys will be Boyz Mixed Media Layout

Today I am sharing with you my newest creation for The Crafter’s Workshop. I love creating grungy masculine layouts and I actually got my inspiration from the More than Words Challenge.

So this is what I created – if you want to see the full tutorial please click here to go to The Crafter’s Workshop Blog.

So the brief was to create something that is inspired by the word ” Birthday” and has to have at least 2 tags. This photo of Noah on this 13th birthday last month was perfect – spending time at his favourite place doing what he loves with is best friends.

The Best Days – Mixed Media Layout

Today is my last DT post for Sassy Scrappers and I would just like start off by thanking Olga for asking me to join her amazing team… what started out being for only 3 months ended up lasting 9 months and I have truly enjoyed every minute of it. And I would also like to thank all the Sassy Fans that have followed me over the last 9 months xx.

So let me show you what I created and how I went about it….

main image

I started by cutting 7 strips of Glitz Design pp – Sunshine in my Soul – Stripe and adhered the 7 strips onto to Glitz Design – Sunshine in my Soul – Suns.

I then used TCW9001 White Gesso using my Finnabair 1″ Silicone Brush to seal around the paper cluster. I also used my finger to lightly rub white gesso around the edges of my photo.

Once dry I then started to apply my colours to the background. Using a wet paint brush I applied 13arts Ayeeda Mists – Pastel Cobalt, then Chalk Ultramarine and to finish I used Chalk Indigo. Making sure I dried between colours.

I then splattered all 3 colours onto my background also

Next I applied 13arts Ayeeda Mist Pastel Caramel just to highlight some areas and then added some builders tape for a little bit of texture. (I bought this tape from my local hardware store)

I set that a side and started on my photo mount – I used some cardboard from a packing box and ripped the first layer off. I then rubbed white gesso around the edges and using a wet brush I applied a small amount of 13arts Ayeeda Mist Chalk Indigo.

I then added some stickers from Pinkfresh Studio – Escape the Ordinary range and finished off with some stamping using Tim Hotlz stamps/stencil THMM104, a flair by Funky Flair Studio from the Boyz Rule range and some cotton thread in a blue and tan colour.

And there you have it – simple but lots of fun to create. Thanks for dropping by and until tomorrow – stay crafty!!! xx
