The very first layout I am presenting today is titled "Magoo". A crazy little nickname I have had for my son since he was quite young - don't think he appreciates it too much now though! The chipboard I used on this layout is Chicken Wire Large Frame.
I love the masculine feel of these chipboard borders. It's hard to see in these photos but they have quite a lot of texture. I coated them generously with Rico Design Structure paste. It is very gritty & great for lots of texture. Then I spritzed them with Dylusions black ink & to my surprise the end result was a blue-ish hue which worked perfectly with my papers.
My next layout is titled "BeYOUtiful" featuring my daughter.
I absolutely love swirls and flourishes and fell in love with this one. It is actually called Doodlet 02 and I think it's gorgeous. To treat this one I simply coated it with Tattered Angels Glimmermist to achieve a wonderful glimmery finish. And for that amazing BeYOUtiful title, I generously coated it with Liquid Pearls for a wonderful metallic, pearly finish.
I wish you all a very scrappy weekend and look forward to sharing with you some more of my layouts soon!
Until next time,
