It can be such a difficult thing to do - creating a card or a layout for males. Not quite so difficult with young boys though - they can be such a fun topic with their cheeky grins and dirty knees!
These photos were taken at a family get together several years ago, and I have been wanting to do a layout with them for some time. I was collecting ideas and paper colours that matched, and all of a sudden I realised that our stamp set Zoo Review had images that almost exactly matched the print on Timmy's T-Shirt.
I quickly grabbed out my watercolour card, Stazon Jet Black ink, a range of neutral inkpads and my Aquapainter to do some colouring!
A little bit of Linen Thread adds to the rustic safari animal look.
I love the Timeless Type Alphabet Dies and thought the font style went really well for the main title of this layout. I am not so sure about the Alphabet stamp set I used on the banner for Timmy's name. I love the stamp set, and the fun and quirkiness of it to match the feelings and emotions of this layout, but I'm just not so sure it worked . . . might do a rework of that section another day :o)
The colours used here are Summer Starfruit, Midnight Muse and Raspberry Ripple from our 2012-2014 In Colours. The patterned backgrounds are from the In Colour Patterned Paper Stack, the stamped images are in Raspberry Ripple Ink and the mats for the photos are Midnight Muse cardstock.
Hope you enjoyed looking at the fun photos and seeing how these delicious colours work together.
Catch you again soon,
