Crate Paper Wonder "Live it Up" by Fiona Johnstone

Hello everyone
Another layout to share with you today using the Crate Paper Wonder papers. I mentioned last week this was a versatile collection, this time I have used some of the "plainer" papers to create this layout of my son:
Live it Up
Firstly I created a unique background using my favourite spray inks, Dylusions. I have used Postbox Red, Vibrant Turquoise and White. Then I have added some masking and stamping in black to add some contrast to all that gorgeous colour. 

My papers I have torn and roughed various edges before layering onto each other, adding some chipboard fencing wire and cotton thread for texture. I've added a simple Flair badge and a star as embellishments finishing off with my Live it Up title sprayed in Turquoise Dylusions. 
A couple of close-up of each side, masking and stamping
complimenting each other on the other side:

Thanks for stopping by
Till next week

  1. Love what you've done with the background, very intense colour and theme. Great photo of Zane, layered up on the chippie and paper. Looks great.
