Hello 2Crafty Fans,
It is time to reveal my first layout of the month. In Canada, it is spring time and we are actually seeing the sun peeking out for the first time, so it inspired me to do a green layout! This one showcases my son Liam fresh out of his swimming training.
Here we can see the beautiful leaves of the Flamingo frame set. I've prepared them with turquoise embossing ink and I painted the Mini Flourish Bits with silk green paint and placed them underneath the Flamingo frame set.
For the This Boy title, I used some metalized blue paint, applied with my finger. That's what gives it this nice uneven look.
This is another shot focusing on the Mini Flourish Bits.
Now, for the masterpiece of the Flamingo frame set, I first painted the flamingo with metallic silver paint. Then I used two kind of pink inking pens to draw the feathers. Then I used a black inking pen to draw the feather highlights. For the rest of the Flamingo frame set around the flamingo, I used some green embossing powder.
For this layout, I used theses 2crafty Chipboards
FR0108 Flamingo Frame set 6"
W00425 This Boy
M00722 Grid bits
MB006 Mini Flourish Bits
I hope that you'll be inspired by this colorful mix. And don't be afraid to give your boys layouts a touch of pink! It'll bring out some more cheerfulness!
That's all for today! See you soon for my second reveal of May.
