Boy Pages from the MCS June kit

So many patterned papers have pink...and flowers. Not really a problem when scrapping myself, except I also scrap boys: grown up boys, and an almost grown up (teen) boy. So this is how I handled creating two "boy" pages with a recent My Creative Scrapbooks main kit.

For the first, I went with a black, white, and yellow color scheme. I splattered white cardstock for my background, cut leafy wreaths (a My Creative Scrapbooks cut file) from off-white cardstock, used two patterned papers from the kit and added ticket stubs from my stash. The music-themed washi tape wrapped around the wood veneer jar added another touch of black. Finally-a white on white title. It's more minimalistic than some of my pages...but I LOVE it! These colors worked so well with my photo!

The second page, is truly monochromatic. Light blue, dark blue, any shade of blue was welcome here. And blue of course worked perfectly with a photo of my swimmer doing "what makes his soul happy"! Again I used mist to transform plain white cardstock for my background then cut papers into strips and banners, adding enamel dots and fussy cut clocks. A simple title from the kit's pack of Thickers completes the page.

Til next time...
