I have a FUN layout to share today! I really like how this one came out.. and I tried something NEW! I threw some paint on my layout this time. Who’s gettin’ snazzy?.. Tamara’s gettin’ snazzy!
I saw this Basic Grey ‘Hipster’ collection at winter CHA.. it seems like it was ages ago now. I guess that’s what happens when you’re excited about new collections.. you seem to have to wait fo-evah for them to come out after CHA (when usually it’s just a few weeks). I wish I could just snag everything at CHA and walk out the door, lol. Anyhow, it finally came out and you can bet your finest paper cutting scissors I snagged it practically as they were loading it on Two Peas… this is mine, baby!
Then when it arrived I thought to myself, “What the heck and I gonna do with this besides a pile of cards?…. OMG, you need a pedicure!..” (true story) I wanted to do a layout, but here comes my ‘issue’ with needing the photos to ‘go’ with the papers and embellishments. So, my wheels started turning and I remembered some ‘Hipster’ glasses I bought for another project (which you’ll see soon enough).. I set up a quick photo shoot of my son on my front porch. Does he look quite ridiculous in those big ol glasses?.. lol.. Nah. My little cutie. He had fun with it and in about 2 minutes I got some CUTE pics. Thanks, Austin! It’s always nice when the kiddos wanna take pics for me… most of them were something like this though…
What IS that?.. Like.. are you OK, dude?.. lol So, I told him to be ‘cool’ and act like Batman (he gets more serious when he is in ‘Batman’ mode) So.. I got these shots and created this totally radical layout!
The paint.. ahhh.. the PAINT! I love the look. I’m gonna rub white paint all over my projects now, lol OK.. maybe not, but doesn’t it look good with the feel of this layout?
Finally used my little label tool thingy. Be a cool kid and get one, too.. SMASH Label Maker Only $10.00! That’s nothin’.. pretty much my daily coffee budget, lol.
That metal ‘cool’ clip.. oh how I LOVE them! They are also from the Basic Grey ‘Hipster’ collection. And if you’re currently drooling over the camera and film strip washi tape, mop up your mess and then head to Michaels! I got those babies on sale! They come together in a two pack.
Let me continue to show you every square inch of my layout.. one last pic.
As usual.. tell me what you think! If you use paint on your layouts, I’d love to see! Link me up to your blog in the comments! I wasn’t really sure WHAT I was doing. I just grabbed a makeup sponge and started smearing paint all over.. kinda how I put my makeup on, lol.
Alrighty.. time to head on outta here with your radical self. Thanks for stopping by! I have a busy week, but I do have a blog post for you tomorrow too.. TWO 3D projects made with Carta Bella ‘Beach Boardwalk’.
See ya!Pin It
