Scrap The Boys - August Challenge

This month at Scrap The Boys the challenge is to create a monochromatic layout, which includes twine and chipboard.  There are great prizes up for grabs, as usual!




Pictured is my little boy in front of the "Penguin Plunge" at Perth Zoo, with his dad lurking in that reflection in the glass!

I used gesso to stop my paper crinkling, and also to create some texture.  Sprayed Bahama Blue glimmer mist and splattered Mermaid glimmer glam.  I also used clear micro beads (real cheap on ebay). My glue didn't quite dry as clear as I hoped (I went overboard with it, hate when those little beads roll off!) but perhaps it adds to the effect!

Thanks for stopping by!

Scrap The Boys - July Challenge

This month at Scrap The Boys you need to create a layout using a black and white headshot of your boy(s) or man, everything else is up to you!

Easy hey?



I had a play with some gesso, glimmer mist and glimmer glam and liked the wintery feel of the layout. I added some light stamping, paper flourishes, random pearls and glittery dots. I was afraid to do much more to it incase I ruined it!


Thanks for looking!
