I created this layout for Love My Tapes, to showcase how well the tapes work on 'boy' pages. I love how this turned out. I've scrapped these photos before, and I was never satisfied with the outcome. Now I'm happy. ;)
See - you CAN use lace on boy pages. Being 'chose-y' helps. :)
Don't worry - I'm not coming over to the dark side of banners... it's just what 'worked' here. I do think it was kind fun to try it once...
The wood shapes from Studio Calico were a good, neutral match for the tapes - I want to use these again.
I added a die-cut piece of fabric from the 'anchors' fabric sheet. And the ink splats were just for fun.
