Happy Friday, Roadies! Jess here today with a BOY page for you. I like all colors, including pink, but really do love scrapping for my little guy. I’d love to show you how easy it is to go beyond floral and typically girly embellishments and create a fun layout for the boys in your life.
The first stand-out element of my design is the twine "sunburst" on the right half of the page. I wanted some white space but it looked too empty with nothing over there so I added the rays with twine, taping the center parts and very slightly notching the edge where the twine ends wrapped around to the back. After I placed my photo mat layers the messy taped center was hidden. The twine also created a perfect fun set of lines for my title!
I added the 24/7 wood token above my title... because, as any mom of a little boy understands, the LEGO obsession is non-stop! The wood tokens are awesome for boy pages. Basic shapes like circles are easy to incorporate into your design and the natural wood coordinates with everything.
I die-cut a notepaper and a tag here, as well, for additional layers.
You can also see an older Maya Road acrylic "potty person" boy that I adhered to the right of the photo. It doesn't get more boy than that!
I used another wood token below my photo, along with a kraft insta card. Kraft elements almost always work well on masculine pages. I also love hearts for boys... yup! My little guy is definitely the more lovey of my two kids and loves drawing hearts. So he gets hearts!
I added a length of preppy striped black and white ribbon to ground the photo, which is repeated in the piece tied on the tag.
Tags are an essential embellishment for the guys! They can add color and texture, like I did here, with bits tied in the holes or the dimension of corrugate.
The star button completes a visual triangle of wooden circles in my design and the 5 metal clip adds even more texture. I love these clips!
Now, rest assured I absolutely DO use flowers on my boy pages! But the embellishments shown here today are definitely my go-to choices for neutral pages for the guys in my life. Thanks for taking a look!
