Off the Rails Scrapbooking New challenge for April

April already my dears!!! Which means a new challenge over at Off the Rails Scrapbooking. This month we have two mood palettes and I've chosen to go with the masculine one for this layout.

And here is the mood palette I created.

I definitely focused on the colours for my inspiration but also the mirror balls and the saying "Explore Life".

I recently purchased some papers from SODAlicious. LOVE THEM!!! and I thought they were perfect for this modern looking board. this one is called "Broken Lines" from the Pencil lines collection.

I incorporated some cutout circles to represent the string of circles on the mood palette. I sewed them into place with my sewing machine. They are all made separately. Some by gluing glitter on to them. One of the black ones is cut from corrugated card and they all have a light smearing of white gesso on them.

The background was created by simply wiping green acrylic paint across the paper where I wanted it and then once it was dry, I stencilled over it using modelling paste.

I've been practising my boy pages as I'm not very confident with them but this one I really love. Now I just need some more pictures of my boy!!
