More Basic Grey Mon Ami - by Fiona Johnstone

 Hello everyone

My final share for this month, using some more of the delighful Basic Grey Mon Ami collection. This time I have gone grungy and created a boy page using predominantly
 the red, greys and yellows from this range. 

I have created my background using a mix of gesso, masking and stamping for my layout, Hello Mr Cool and have used the May 1 sketch over at Stuck sketches for inspiration.
Another view showing the gesso, which I applied thinly so it is more grey than white. Then I have used a crafters workshop mask and inked over it in black in the top left and bottom right. I have then added some stamoing with the grid stamp in black ink and the triangles stamp in red.
I've used some chipboard embellishments which are always fabulous on boy pages - the hello word bubble and gears by 2Crafty and a wood veneer shape by Crate Paper.

Of course I have managed to stick a flair in there too! You can see some more detail where I have continued the stamping after the papers have been put down.

I've even added a little bit of journaling (that's not hidden!!).

Thanks for stopping by, hope you have been inspired to try this versatile range of papers. 

Till next time
