Today's post is one that should've gone out back in July! Talk about being behind schedule. This layout was done for the July Berry71bleu challenge. For some reason, I just never posted it onto my own blog.
So I recently discovered this long awaited page & decided to take the time to finally showcase it.
This would be my son giving me his best 'big boy' pose. He's a ham & loves the camera. You figured he'd be modeling for years based on how he can strike a pose in a matter of seconds...
All papers seen on my layout are from Authentique's 'Infused' collection. Even though the color scheme falls into the category that makes the collection more suitable for girls--I think it can still work for a toddler boy. My son has a couple of bright colored summer outfits & it just so happens that his bright yellow neon shorts along with his pastel blue shirt went along nicely with the color scheme of this collection.
To make the different patterns of the paper pop against each other--I matted my layers with black card stock. This helped define each layer since several of the papers have bright patterns on it.
The photo lent itself to be fussy cut--so I did just that, I fussy cut my son out & adhered him with pop dots in order to give the layout a bit more dimension.
For the floral cluster I chose a combination of felt & burlap flowers to add a touch of masculinity to the page.
