Genuine Boy

Here's my 1st layout for the Robin's Nest  DT. I had so much fun working with their amazing products. The theme for this month is All Boy and that's a hard one for me. I hardly ever get any pics of our grandson but I finally found this one. It's really a Christmas photo but it went perfectly with the boy themed papers so I decided to scrap it without using traditional Christmas colors.

Here's the supply list:
Corrugated Chipboard
Wood Veneers
Notebook Punch
Brick Stencil

I started by wiping gesso around the edges of the back side of the Dinosaur Cardstockthen stenciled the brick pattern over the gesso using a tan colored ink. I then took the Red Plaid Linen Cardstock and tore two somewhat square pieces to use as the top mat and the reverse side for the bottom photo mat. In between those two mats I used a torn square piece of the reverse side of the Special Delivery/Boys PlaidI also inked all  the edges of the three mats.

For the title I used the Belgian Chocolate Boy Rub-on.

I cut a strip of the Special Delivery/Boys Plaid and punched it using a notebook edge punch and then scrunched up the edges. Then added the wood veneer, corrugated chipboard star cutout, ticket and chain.

Thanks for stopping by today!
