Backyard Boy ~ Maja Design~

Hello everyone! I hope that you are well. I am sharing a scrapbook page which is for an album that I am slowly making for my brother. As a toddler, he was always into cars, trucks etc and loved playing with them all the time. To create this page, I have selected papers from The Vintage Autumn Collection.

To alter the title to have a rugged masculine feel, I used Distress Spray Stain faded jeans and then used Clear Rock Candy. The Clock face was embossed with Lindy's Stamp Gang Midnight Bronze embossing powder. The clock faces were fussy cut Clocks XVI to add to the vintage/masculine feel of the page.

To frame my photo, I used the reverse XXI and distressed it. I  applied some weathered wood distress ink before adding a wall cut out from Wild orchid Crafts. I didn't alter it as I liked it raw.

Even though it's a masculine page, I still like to add flowers! The flowers help to frame the photo and of course compliment the beautiful papers!

The bottom section features a section of corrugated paper. I have had various colours in my stash for a while now! I used a ruler to tear a section of my papers and then I distressed them with some ink. I used XV as the very base of the page.

Maja Design papers used:


Background No XIII and XV
No XXI, Clocks XVI and XXII

Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts Magnolias, Green Tara Flowers, Prima Flowers

Chipboard: Wild Orchid Crafts Background Wall Cut out , Scrapmatts Clock faces 01. Blue Fern Studios Backyard Boy
