Hello all and welcome .. it’s fantastic to see you here, This is Annette sharing my first blog post as a design team member and what better way than with this super masculine range ‘ WORKSHOP’.

BOYS will be BOYS

I really like to frame my Layouts so I used cardstock , then my chosen patterned papers, distressing all edges to add to the grungy look, then applying thick heavy gesso through a stencil then stamping for dimension.

I double matted two of my photos and the centre feature photo was framed to highlight. you may also notice my photos are not perfect, a little blurry , they still however tell a story & preserve memories.

I inked & glazed the wooden cogs, plus used bits from the collectables & fussy cut some cogs from the patterned paper , these have been added with various thicknesses of foam tape.

I framed my feature photo with the ruler print, I felt this pic truly portrayed my grandson who absolutely groans when I ask for a posed pic, truly I could create an album of poked tongues & screwed up facial expressions. I have started to use them because it him to a ‘T’ the joker.

I thoroughly enjoyed creating with this ‘WORKSHOP range of papers and I know you will also, if you wish to create a similar LO my instructions for this layout are HERE.

Bye for now, till next time,

Happy Scrapping, Annette
