I recently took some photos of Liam wearing his Here Comes Trouble t-shirt and I thought this collection would be perfect! I used a fun cut file from Cut To You. They have a boys section in their shop if you are looking for cut files to use on masculine projects. I backed the file with different papers from the collection kit. I love the fun colors and the pops of black in this collection.
The black and white checkered paper is one of my favorites in this collection and I think it helps bring out the black and white in his shirt! I added some foam adhesive to the back of the cut file to pop it up from the background. To add some interest to my background I took my Tim Holtz Distress Oxide in the color Speckled Egg and applied to an acrylic block. I added some water to the block and mixed it up with my paint brush. I used some scrap plastic packaging and picked up the color and smooshed it onto the background. I also used the paint brush to add some splatters too. I love the color peeking out from behind the cut file and think it adds interest to the page.
Instead of adding my photos on top of my cut file I decided to add them behind a few of the stars but keeping them in the square shape. I love how they turned out! I used the awesome Bro & Co foam stickers for my title and embellished a few of the circles on the cut file.
To finish up my layout I used some of the checkered pattern paper that I love at the top and bottom of the page. Here is a look at my completed layout using the new Simple Stories Bro & Co collection.
