2009

"2009"

2Crafty Chipboard pieces used:
"Circle Revolution"
"2013's" (trimmed)
"Chicken barbed Wire Medium"
"Mini Tags"

My last piece to share with you this month is a masculine layout I created for a photo of my son from when he was a fresh faced teen back in 2009!


For this project, I wanted to keep my chipboard raw to give it that real grungy look. I coiled some brass wire around the largest circle from the "Circle Revolution". The only colour on it is from the ink drips I added at the end and some silks paint I brushed over it lightly.


Chicken wire is my favourite go to grunge addition to any layout of this style. I simply cut it up with my scissors and layered the "Chicken Wire Medium" one on top of the other. I dabbed some paint over it to help it blend in with the background but other than that, it's as raw as it comes!


Last of all, to create my title, I scraped  a "Mini Tag" with some brown ink to create a base for my date. I cut in half one of the "2013's" seeing my photo was taken in 2009 and just added the 09 in foam numbers I had in my stash. A great way to use my "2013's" for other years!

Looking back, I think this month ,I've offered something for everyone LOL but that's the beauty of scrapping. I never know what I might create next! I often find my chippies decide the outcome for me ...... not a bad way to be I say!

  2. What an awesome masculine layout of your adorable son. I have a hard time with masculine - I am currently working on a few pages for my son and grandson - it's been a struggle. Thanks for sharing our awesome page.

The only artist you should ever compare yourself to is the one you were yesterday.
