One for the boys

A layout of my brother. I am sure he'll hate me for publishing this but hey, as a sister I have the duty to wind him up now and again!


Although this layout look quite simple there are a few techniques going on. I have lightly misted the background, then stamped some Waltzing Mouse chevron with Versamark. I then placed some old Hambly and Pink Paisley rub-ons. For the title I traced around chipboard letters onto patterned paper, I hand cut them and then outlined them with a black pen. I mounted my photograph on white cardstock and then placed it on the page with some foam pads. I finished the layout with my journaling. I was inspired by old vintage rock T-shirt for the overall design. I hope this inspired you!

Great layout, love the stamping underneath the photo, it looks great on the Kraft card - might have to try that!

Fantastic page Emilie. I love the chevrons in the background and the wings.

Cute layout Emilie. I love the wings and lettering. I haven't tried spray painting on a layout but it seems quite fun, so I must try it. TFS. ~Glen~

There's a lot going on here so wonderfully subtly that it makes a very striking page. Surely he will love you for the wings!

very very nice. you can see the grungy t shirt influence in the design, great idea for a "male" layout.

has your brother forgiven you yet? :)
