UK Scrap Addicts – Masculine Layout – Superstar

The monthly challenge for November over at UK Scrap Addicts is all about masculine layouts.

I actually created this layout for a previous challenge to use mixed media and then I never used it but it was perfect for this challenge too. I used a mis-cut file (hidden by clever placement of the stars on the “U”) and popped the photo behind the star / “a”. I took so many photos on this particular day and I wanted to use all of them because they were all so perfect, but there’s a limit to the stories you can include. I did journal a lot on previous layouts about how I had suddenly noticed how grown up my boy had become around this time and in particular when I looked through the photos on my camera the following day. Using a cut file like this means I don’t have to say anything deep and meaningful and the photo still goes in my album.

I used the awesome Cocoa Vanilla Boys Rule collection for this layout and I Loved it so much that I bought both the 12×12 pack and the 6×8 paper pad. The smaller formats are brilliant for backing cut files and you don’t hyperventilate when you cut into them. I relly wanted the cut file to stand out so this dark grey background was perfect. I used a stencil and some texture paste to create the stars to give the background a bit of interest too and I love the effect it gives.

You might notice the splodges of green paint on the edges of my layout – I had tried to do some mixed media with paint on the back of this layout but it didn’t go well so I turned it over not realising I had swiped the paper in the overspill!

If you’ve been inspired to create a masculine layout, please do share them on the UKSA Facebook group so others can get some ideas too.

Happy scrapping!

COVID 19 UPDATE – Unfortunately I am currently unable to process any further physical cut file orders for at least the next 2 weeks.  The logistics of dealing with the new and necessary restrictions, while also homeschooling my children and caring for my Dad, mean that it is becoming more and more difficult and the restrictions may even become tighter as we seek to control this awful situation.  Obviously I’m keeping a close watch on the news so that I can start processing and posting again as soon as possible.  You can still browse and order but they will not go out in the post until there is a further update.

Digital orders can still be purchased and instantly downloaded as normal and remain unaffected by the restrictions.  However, there is a slight glitch on the website that means some devices are duplicating items as they are added to the basket.  You can remove them in the final screen and I can obviously organise speedy refunds for any that slip through the net.

Thank you so much for your continued support for Pretty My Page.  Every order and message is so important to me but even more so now.  Wishing you all health and happiness x
