I Have a Son

Hello everyone!! It's Angela Ploegman here to kick off my week blogging at SEI Lifestyle...let's start with a layout I created using papers from the Bissette Collection...

I LOVE how the pearlized paper took the water based mists...I first sprayed a turquoise mist in a few spots and then overlapped those spots with a yellow mist...I jiggled the paper a bit to mix the colors and then wiped off the excess with a paper the effect...I think this technique would work equally well for the White Elegance papers as the pearl finish is the same as in the Bissette line.

Not one to waste much, I used the paper strips that I cut off the background paper to expose the black cardstock base to form a boy-friendly flower...the strips were formed into loops and then stapled in the center and layered on top of each other in a staggered pattern. The black paper squigglies were thin black strips of cardstock that I made wet, wrapped around a journalling pen and let dry...the flower center is a black gem on a chipboard letter 'o'...super fun and easy to make embellishment!

The black matting around many of the page elements really gives the page a masculine touch...if you saw the paper pad, you wouldn't immediately think 'boy page', but it certainly works here!

Thanks for stopping by today...join me any day at my blog: Angela Ploegman Designs

The border of loops was a new Martha Stewart double punch!
