Boys Will Be Boys

Afternoon Everyone,

Can you believe that it is the second last day of June?
Where has this month gone?

Just thought I would pop in this afternoon to share another layout that I have created using the Cocoa Vanilla Studios collection 'Totally Rad'

This layout was a little bit of a work in progress.
I was fiddling with the background, trying a few techniques.
I wasn't overly happy with the background and sort of shoved it aside thinking that I didn't like it and that I would never use it. After a bit of paper shuffling I have used it and have come up with this layout... (I apologise about the shadows!)

To create the background I did a couple of things.

The first thing I did was... using the Kaisercraft Bricks 12x12 template, my Faber Castell Gelatos and some baby wipes I created the water colour brick wall effect using both orange and black.
All I did was add the Gelato colour to the baby wipe and wiped it through the template onto the card stock.

The second thing I did was used some texture paste. I used it with a template, Kaisercraft Quarters as well as just by smearing it onto the card stock.

Next I used some of the 'old' Kaisercraft Rub-Ons that I have hoarded away for ages. I tried to use some of them up in the background and wasn't worried if they didn't quite work so well. Adds to the grungy look.

Then I used my Gelatos in the yellow and orange and just randomly applied it over the water colour and texture paste. At some points I blended the Gelatos with my finger at other points just left it.

Finally on the background I splattered some charcoal coloured mist. 

To complete the layout I have added strips and blocks of the gorgeous Cocoa Vanilla collection, which I have inked with Distress Ink.
A few little embellishments from my kit - the sensational flairs and the very versatile wood veneers - and my layout is done.
