Good evening! I'm finally sitting down after a long day of baking and cleaning- I put off the Thanksgiving dishes until tonight which was NOT a good idea, lol! Especially with my lack of running water...but it's done and I'm SO glad that I am! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving holiday (for those of you who celebrate) and were safe while out doing your Black Friday shopping (once again, if you do so). I got ALL of my Christmas shopping done online today! What a relief! Took advantage of some great deals and feel I got a nice variety of goodies for my kids and their cousins, including matching fleece pajamas for 8 kids! I'm admittedly a fleece footie pajama fanatic~ you can never have too many of them :)~ and the Christmas patterned once are just way too adorable. Can't wait to take pictures of them all wearing them~!!
But on to the matter at hand :). I have a couple more Scrap FX projects to share with you tonight, both being "boy" themed. Earlier this month I showed you a "girly" project, so it was only fair that we focused on the boys this time...
The “Son definition” piece was the inspiration for this layout. I thought it was just too adorable! I’ve first primed it with gesso before covering with a pale pink crackle paint. After drying with a heat gun I dabbed it randomly with a dark shade of brown ink and then finally topped the whole thing off with just a hint of sandy colored ink. As the base for my title I’ve used a tag from the “Tags, mixed cream” set. I’ve edged it with some brown ink before stamping around the perimeter.
Isn’t this “Tricycle” just cute?! I wanted it to look a little vintage, so I treated first with gesso, edged with dark brown ink, and then added a lighter brown shade over the top before blending the two colors together. I’ve also added just a hint of bling to the tires!
I’ve applied the same methods to the scooter boy from the “Scooter Kids” pack. I placed him racing away from my flower cluster, as any boy would do!!
Next, I have a card to share!
A good friend of mine recently had a baby boy, so it was the perfect opportunity to create a sweet baby boy card to send her! The primary focus of this card is the adorably sweet “Train Set, mini” pieces. I left them raw as I loved how they looked “as is”, especially with this color scheme. And overtop I’ve simply placed my “Boy” title, using letters from the new “Playground Alphabet, small” letter set!
