Hello everyone. This week I thought I would share a "Boy" page with you for a change!!!! I did this page this week for a layout challenge over at "Inspired Blueprints". Great site with fab layout challenges. Go over & have a peek. On this page I have used Green Tara red mesh on the top & bottom of the page, however I have attacked the edges with scissors to make them all rough & not so perfect, then just tucked it in underneath the border punched edges. I am rather pleased with this look as I love this mesh & am always thinking of new things to do with it. It is available in sooo many great colours. Next I have used some of this great new striped ribbon as well as the little black fringing trim,both also from Green Tara. This ribbon comes in two widths, this is the thicker one, there is also a narrower one. I just love the way the stripes go accross instead of just along the ribbon. Makes a nice change, don't you think? Lastly I have used my NEW found, favourite, Green Tara product. This product is Paper String. Really, when I first saw it I thought, yeah, it is just string, big deal. However after playing with it for a while, I absolutely love it. Because it is a paper string it sort of stays where you put it. Hard to explain, but if you have a chance to get your hands on some I suggest you do. Awesome colour range & cheap as chips. It comes in 5m skeins. Here I just used staples to attach it to the page to create my circle.
I have also used a chip Tribal Tattoo which I have given a faux metal paint finish on & some raw wood letters, threw in some stamping & sewing , and hey presto, all finished. Hope this gives you a few ideas. Until next time. Happy scrapping. Di Garling xx
