Perfect Day LO - Card and Tag - The Scrapbook Store



I'm back with a new layout for The Scrapbook Store, using the Melissa Frances - Classic Elegance Paper Collection, - Bits of Paper, and Strictly Business to create a masculine layout.   

The photograph was taken recently when Jesse got to spend sometime with his big sister, her husband and the two boys - he was eagerly awaiting them to arrive by relaxing on the foreshore wall.   I couldn't resist in taking a pile of snaps of him... and love his serious expression.
Many of the elements within the layout have been misted using Perfect Pearls, and Starburst Mists.  Papers were aged  via scrunching and distressing edges, adding lots of paper layers using the 6X6 Paper Pad. A little extra interest was added to the background paper using the Tile Texture stencil, and Texture Paste.  
 I always struggle doing masculine layouts, but am happy with this one...

Materials:
Melissa Frances - Classic Elegance Paper Collection, - Bits of Paper, and Strictly Business
Prima Marketing, Flowers Misc
Maya Road, Wood - You've Been Framed
Green Tara - Petals
The Scrapbook Store - Scrap Words, Burnt Cream 

...and with left over papers, elements from my DT kit this month ..I created a card and a tag..


Happy Creating...and don't forget to come join in the fun of the August Sketch - details can be found 'HERE'...
