Scraplift Tough Teen
Today I finished this layout with a picture of my son. It's kind of a scraplift from a layout Corinne Delis made for the latest issue of Creatief met Foto's, a Dutch Scrapbookers Magazine.
I used patterned paper from Basic Grey. Love their new lines!
I sanded the picture and all the borders of the pp, cut the big stars and the letters from jeans and painted with white acrylic paint around the jeansletters. The turquoise arrows are made from felt. I also used some turquoise acrylic paint to bring more color, more life into the layout. The little stars are made from silver cardstock and from ducktape. The black stripes with white letters are actually those small letterstamps in a black circle. I stamped them on white cardstock with black ink and then colored more black around them with a thick DVD pen. After that I put some double sided tape on the back and cut them in small stripes.
The 3 silver "brads" you see in the corners of the photo are actually tissue brads I bought at Action. They are used to make nice patterns on jeans. Also used some black distress ink on all the borders of the layout.
