Boy stuff

Boys Stuff
By Sue Smyth 

Hi Bloggers 
Today I am sharing the layout I did for the boy challenge on the Imaginarium blog 

My boy layout is based on a Wordle, kind of a puzzle with words as the background

I have used left over alphas to create a series
or words that reflect boys, and adhered them to basic cardstock

Then I have painted with gesso
and sprayed with Lindys stamp gang sprays for colour

for the cogs I have spray painted black with a can of matt spray paint,
 then added mini art stones with dimensional magic
 and rubbed over with copper and green inka gold

I have added smaller words, that have been spray painted matt black

here the corner is embossed with 
Stampendous aged copper..perfect for this look

the black and white butterflies help soften
 the look and add a natural element to contrast with the cogs and metal

I have cut several trinkets in half and layered above and below the photo

add a few trinkets, the branches help soften the look of the layout

Happy Crafting all
