My Boy with Crate Paper Cool Kid collection by Fiona Johnstone
I've been waiting for this super cool boys range to arrive, and I was not disappointed. I love it! It's the fab new Cool Kid collection by Crate Paper.
For this layout, I created my paper layers before I created my background. I couldn't decide on the colour background I wanted to use initially. The layering was easy - use a combination of the colours as my photo was neutral - apart from those big blue eyes! So I chose the blue to highlight those then added the other primary colours with a touch of neutrals.
A black background was too much so instead I grabbed my Dylusions paints to add some black for the base. Then I took some inspiration from one of the patterned papers and some inspiration from Tammy, to add some plus signs in texture paste.
I've used some chipboard and wood veneers to embellish the layout, and added some extras from the Cool Kid collection.
