Brothers Together

Hello again everyone and welcome to my blog. I would like to 
bring to you this time a LO I have created for the June Inspiration 
Board Challenge over at 123 Challenge Blog

Colour: Blue
Word: Together
Technique: Masking

The photo I chose is of my two sons Riley and Harley. The two of 
them are always together and are best friends. I hope you like my 
take on the challenge.

I created the layout on White Cardstock.  The papers I chose were 
Graphic 45 - Little Darlings. I inked the edges with Faded Jeans 
Distress Ink. I know many so they will never use flowers on boy 
pages but I think there are times when they are just right. I love them 
on this LO and so do the boys. They are small and large paper flower 
along with a paper flower spray.

I have used gauze which I colored with Lindy's Stamp Gang Spray -
Blue Hawaiian and also Kaisercraft Ink - Island. The chipboard doily
is by JT's Laser Cuts and I sponged a little of the Island Ink on it.

For the background I used Modeling Paste on TCW Mini Harlequin
Mask. Once dry I then inked over the top with Versa Color - Cryan.
Also on the background I used a Kaisercraft Stamp - Arty with Distress
Ink - Faded Jeans.

Behind the photo which is mounted on royal blue cardstock I used
corrugated card board which I sprayed with Lindy's Stamp Gang 
spray - Blue Hawaiian Blue and the painted it a little with Kaisercraft
white paint which in places had a slight blue tinge to if from the spray.

The chicken wire chipboard is by Dusty Attic and the title is cut from
royal blue cardstock using Sizzix Alpha Dies. I then inked very lightly
over the top with Kaisercraft - Island.

I hope you like my take on the challenge and if you have the time hop 
on over to the 123 Challenge Blog and join in the fun. There is some
great inspiration from the design team to get your creative flowing. 


  1. Love this layout :) So much detail and I agree flowers and boys do go together.

  2. oh I was just looking that this challenge today! LOVE what you have done with it Brenda, divine!

  3. This is fabulous Brenda! I reckon flowers are ok on any layout, as long as the people in the pic are happy about it. If your boys are happy then that's all that matters. Btw, those flowers are gorgeous! I love the clustering and the cool background work.
