"Cool Kid" by Di Garling


Hello there 2 Crafty fans. I hope you have all had a great week & got lots of scrapping done. I certainly did. Today I want to share this boy layout with you. I have been doing so many girlie pages  of late & one of my customers in my shop (I own Di's Scrapbooks at The Entrance NSW for those of you that didn't know),  said to me last week that I hadn't been doing  as many boy pages  as I usually do, so I stepped up to her challenge & I have actually done three this week. I will share the others soon. I love these strong colours on boy pages. I have used the 2 Crafty word "Cool Kids" & I just cut the "S" off kids, too easy. I am forever cutting my chipboard words up to accomodate whatever layout I happen to be working on. Thats one of the great things about chip you can pretty much do anything with it. After painting my word red I simply gave it a coat of "Crackle Accents" to grunge it up a bit. I just love texture!!
The other 2 Crafty product  I used on my layout were  these fabulous "Individual Film Strips". These come in a pack of four. I have simply painted them black & backed them with red card to make them stand out a bit. My photos weren't the correct size to fit in them perfectly so I have just slipped the pics  in on an angle. I think this works well.
Well thats all for today, thanks for stopping by & I hope I have given you a little inspiration for those boy pages. Until next time.    Cheers Di  xoxo

love the bold colours Di, and positioning the photos on an angle next to the film strip chippie works well too!
