The one with the messy background...



Life-layout

One of my fave ways to save time is to work with backgrounds I've previously created with residual mists. I will go "shopping" in my stack of messy backgrounds...like this one. :)


You may have noticed that I don't particularly work with masculine colours for boy layouts or sweet colours for girl layouts. I just go with colours that I like at that moment and just pull a few more colours from the photos to achieve a cohesive feel. [Haven't got arrested by the scrapbook police for using pink on boy layouts yet...*LOL*]

Inspired by the challenge at ScrapFriends and Scrap It with a Song.

P/s: This week I get to reveal my super secret project! *winks*

*Edited* This layout made Top 3 at Scrap it with a song.

The back ground is so cool.. The fact that you do not use the so-called associated boy-girl color combo to make your backgrounds makes your work stand out.. I finally purchased my first template.. let's see how well I can use it!

I think that is a fabulous outlook to have with colours for boys or girls and one that I think I will adopt. This is such a cool layout and I love that background. Such cute photos of your boys too.. :D

Cindy deRosier said...

Beautiful! I'm not worried about the scrap police, but I do think twice before going too girly on boy pages for fear they'll hate them or be embarrassed by them when they're older. This is gorgeous though - who wouldn't love it?!
