I decided to veer away from my usual shabby and romantic style to go grunge and create a very boyish page using one of my very favorite paper collections from ScrapBerry's called Edge of Town!
Not only are these papers absolutely gorgeous, they also seemed perfect for the April mood board on the Berry71bleu challenge blog. The mood board inspired my use of the rusty, woodgrain, brick patterns and the metal accents. Click HERE to find out more about the Berry71bleu challenge.
I covered my chipboard and wood icons with black sand embossing powder to give them an old metallic effect to match the papers.
Below you can see a few ScrapBerry's embellishments that I found in my stash that fit in well with my page: a vintage unicycle metal trinket from the Vintage Circus set as well as epoxy dark orange epoxy stickers from the Around the World collection. It goes to show how versatile ScrapBerry's embellishments are that you can mix and match products from different lines for a single page.
Here is a close-up of these fabulous patterned papers!
And the star of my page is baby Tristan, my friend's son, from a few years back!
I am thrilled on how my layout turned out, and that is thanks
to Berry71bleu inspiration and ScrapBerry's Edge of Town collection!
I would love to hear what you think!
