You can see that beautiful page (complete with video) here.
And so I was inspired to make a page that resembles Ashli's page . . . not at all!!!! But that's OK, because I had a lot of fun and challenged myself to see what diecuts I had that I could use on a "boy" page (like I said, not like Ashli at all, who has 4 daughters!)
This page for Rohan, back when he was ten, will sit next to a divided page protector with a bunch more photos, journalling and a couple more diecuts.
But then I was feeling in kind of a mixed media frame of mind, so I pulled some more "boy-friendly" diecuts and placed them on a sheet of cardstock in a colour I don't love . . .
and gessoed over the whole lot!
Then, while I had the gesso out, I did another background, using the negative pieces from a stencil I had cut, which I'd saved for just this reason . . .
Can you foresee some more mixed media fun in my future? I hope so! And do you think I might have pressed the "checkout" button to purchase my new Silhouette blade before the gesso dried . . . ? Well you might not be far wrong!
Last question: do you think I've managed to "use up" my die-cuts? Lets have a look, shall we . . .
