A - Z All Boy

The handmade item is the pinwheel next to the title.  For the chevron I've used texture paste and a stencil.  I've cut round the diamond patterned paper and used strips of various papers and cute circle from patterned pp.  Spritzed with Colour Bloom Summer Sky and Mister Huey's inky black.  The blobs are the same.  Randomly stamped 'all boy' using an alphabet stamp and stamped with a check pattern round the photo.  Stars are brads.  "You" is also a brad Also added are appropriate sentiments .  Photo of my grandson taken when he was 14.

 Spread your wings  & fly
For the background I've misted in various colours from the mood board using a chicken wire template; texture paste used with a text template; cut lattice using Tim Holtz die; Little Birdie flowers for the cluster, bird cage cut from the Madelaine range of pp and various other pps in the photo mat.  The little bird is a Krafters Kirner embellishment.  A rub on put onto acetate forms the scroll issuing from the flower cluster.  Photo of my dgd enjoying some delicious ice cream at the Chocolaterie at Yarra Glen.  Thanks for looking.

For the triangles I've torn the cardstock and underlaid Imaginesce pp.  I've used a template and Viva Modelier Crème texture paste to make the doyleys, and various pps for the strips.  Hearts are cut with a Sizzix die.  Title and other words are from Simple Stories sticker sheet.  Also added are Random stamping and sequins used as dot points.  Thanks for looking.

We may not have it altogether
but together we have it all
PPs used are Basic Brey (the yellow spotted ) and another Basic Grey the red spotted, Authentique.  In the background I've used Gelato and a splatter template, misting,  and also random stamping.  The washi tape is on the pennants. I've placed one label on top of the pennants and two small ones under the flower in the lower rh corner.  Thread is looped under the flower cluster.

Linked by love

For this lovely photo of my two beautiful granddaughters, I have chosen a paper from BoBunny Madeline range.  I've used gesso to tone part of the pattern down, added a paper doyley sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, Kaiser Kraft 'Flutter' template and texture paste for the butterflys,  Petaloo flowers and Kaiser mini blooms, a transparency over the photo, and an oval frame embossed with whispers silver argent, a stick pin, lattice cut using a Tim Holtz die, scrolls cut with Paper Artist die, Karen Foster Sparkle burst brad, and rub on title.  Thanks for looking.

Brothers three

All papers come from the MME Boy Crazy range and as the name suggests, perfect for boy layouts.  Also used Gelato Red Cherry with a template around edges and in background, random strips of washi tape and fussy cut robots and stars from the paper range, some 'critters' buttons .  Not altogether happy with the dark cardstock I've chosen.  Thanks for looking.
