Hi crafty friends today I have my last share using the Super Cool collection by Pinkfresh studio.  I have really enjoyed creating boy themed layouts!

I used the Highlight paper as my base paper, the challenge being creating an embellishment cluster that didn’t get lost against this phrase/word paper. I cut two stars, one slightly bigger than the other using Choir paper using the grid side and a leftover strip from the Fun Times paper and again the grid strip. I machine stitched a messy circle in black slightly larger than the stars. Then I attached the stars, overlapping each other with foam tape.

I cut two frames from the Bright Side paper (one with a phrase on it), and attached to the star, the top one with foam tape to create a 3D effect, I added my photo on an angle. I machine stitched the top of the frames (where it looks like washi tape at the top).

Now for the fun part, embellishing! I wanted to draw the eye to the photo, so all my embellishments were focused in towards my photo.

I have used a combination of the ephemera die cuts, puffy stickers and cardstock stickers. I layered a lot of the embellishments and used bright colours to contrast against my chosen base paper. Some embellishments I tucked under the star (which is another great advantage to using foam tape, you can tuck elements under later, adding to your design) and others I used foam tape to add height, all these design elements avoid your layout looking ‘flat’.

I finished off my layout by adding a splatter of Dylusions black ink spray
