This is the first of three layouts featuring my eldest son. It was just coincidence really - or maybe not as he has just left University, is about to celebrate his 21st birthday and is applying for jobs all over the place which means even more letting go and gentle encouragement from his ma!
Which is where this first layout comes in - the last one using just the Urbaine main kit
The cut file I used was a free one that was originally for an 8 x 11 1/2 page that I managed to adapt (the most advanced thing I have tried with the Cameo so far. Go me) I also cut it out of the October Afternoon Travel Girl and 7 Dots papers. The OA I cut twice so that I could use both sides of the papers. It turned out once would have been enough! I inked the triangles with Vintage Photo distress ink. In order to make the sticking down straightforward I added a scrap piece of card stock behind the holes left in the 12 x12. It did make it a lot easier!
It was going to be a fairly clean layout and then I thought - ooh I could use one of the pieces of patterned paper that I had cut the triangles out of as a mask. So I did - using Peeled Paint distress ink. And then I decided to use a few stamps and then some spots of green Studio Calico Mr Huey and lo - it wasn't clean anymore! But I decided to leave the title unadorned as a contrast. The title was cut twice to give some dimension.
