ISBG: Backyard Boy

Hello there! It's new kit time at International Scrapbook Garden!!!!! The new toolshed kit is called Winter Adventures.

It very much has a blue jeans theme going on mixed with lots of shades of blues for winter layouts too.

For my first project I went with the "all boy in his jeans" layout. I wanted to make sure I used three specific items on this layout . . . the title, the square mat and the mica flakes. I did very little "mixed media" because I felt that with this paper it didn't need much.

The layout is of my son, on his 5th birthday. Daddy made a zipline across our huge yard and since most of the children were small, they all played on it during most of the party. Definitely a huge hit and my son still talks about that zipline and his birthday party to this day (he's now 11).

The title comes in the chipboard extras kit. I heat embossed with my
own colors using Lindy's embossing powders using Morning Glory Azure
and Desert Moon Copper Teal. I did use a very light touch of white Acrylic
paint on the stencil provided in the main kit.

The bark and journal board can be found in the embellishment
bonus kit. The mica flakes are in the mixed media bonus kit.

Blue jeans calls for stitching!! I purposely changed settings
on my machine to get that "messed up" look. The square
border is from the Silhouette Online store.
