A Boy's Life












This is a layout about Ryan trying to wear an adult headset. He knows very well that it's not suitable for his use but well, I guess "boys will always be boys".
Ryan had so much fun with that over sized headset and it;s actually what inspired me to create this funky style layout. I've always wanted to try my hands in creating a funky and fun layout.
Here are the steps to my layout.
1. For the bottom layer, I've hand stitched two pieces of torn out pattern paper which I've inked and stamped.
2. I've actually cut out a swirl shape pattern paper, masked and doodled a few swirls to create the huge swirly pattern on the right. I've also stamped the masked swirls to give some details to it.
3. All the rings on the bottom, were hand drawn and cut from pattern papers and black card stock. I've stamped and doodled on them to add some interest.
4. I've used the bubble wrapper printing technique to create the design on the top right of the photograph.
This is a very fun layout to create but I'm not sure whether I've achieved the funky style here.
