Hi There, I am over on the Scrap Paper Scissors blog at the mo with one of the new Blue Fern Studio Collections....and one of my favourite men.
I am working with some of the new Chesterville Collection
from Blue Fern Studios....it's a rather lovely masculine, grungy
collection and it makes a really nice change from the floral and pretty
paper ranges that are more often about..
am a huge fan of the rock band The Foo Fighters and I am particularly
fond of the lead singer, Dave Grohl....a hugely talented man who writes a
lot of the bands songs and music.....and I just really have a *thing*
for him! It also made a change to scrap a 'non family' layout
planned using a standard 6 x 4 photo of him, but wanted also to make a
big impact. Years ago I used to print a lot on acetate/transparencies
and use on a layout and thought I would try that again for a change. I
printed a close up of his face onto an a4 sheet and used it as a
background for the layout. I also printed some of the lyrics from one of
his songs onto acetate to use.
had some chipboard edging and used some cosmic shimmer in Black Pearl
and some Distress Stickles to grunge it up. I used the same colours to
distress the edge of the photo, which I layered over part of the
I poured some blobs of Cosmic Shimmer Inks and let it run down the layout and also dabbed some Distress Stains
in various areas. I then layered up some tickets and a chipboard frame
and finished the layout with a metal bookplate and some metal letter
I really enjoyed making this, its made a nice change to branch out and do something different.
You can see the whole Chesterville Collection here in the shop along with lots of other delightful Blue Fern Studios products.
