Mooch and Blink !!

Hello scrappers !! It's Aida here and today is my turn on the blog. I hope you are enjoying the previous posts of fabulous work with Urban Lily and your mojo quotient is reving into top gear !

One of the difficulties some scrappers may encounter is gender *block*. I have two girls and rarely scrap using *boy* colors and sometimes I find myself stuck in always using girlie styles or colors all the time. Working on the Mooch and Blink Collection in blues and teals was a real switch for me and so ...... much .......fun !!!

In this layout, paper from the Mooch Collection was perfect for a layout of a brother, sister and friend. The Black and White ATC card in the top right corner balanced the night time background of the photo and I used the title Enjoy from the Urban Lily Cut Out. Needing more flourishes, I decided to hand-draw them on leftover blue pattern paper, cut them out and glued the flouishes to the top corner of the layout

This piece of MDF is 12" X 4" and I thought it would make a great altered piece. First I glued the dotted paper from the Blink Collection, then cut out the graceful black blooms and added them to the left of the project. The photo is an adorable boy named Reezwan and I finished the project with touches of glitter to make the piece feel kid-like.

Here are the details :

There you go folks ! I will be back next week with another post. See you then !!
