Meilleurs Amis - a boy and his cat, scrapbooking with Bo Bunny


This layout was published last year in "Histoires de Pages" - my favorite scrappy magazine.  "Meilleurs Amis" translates to "Best Friends".   I placed the title letters on a lighter paper, then cut around and mounted as one piece on the page.  I wanted to use these blue letters, but they wouldn't have stood out very well without a little white behind them.


The 'leather' and zipper trim were perfect for a boy page.  This was also one of those times that I decided to leave the chipboard 'bare' - the colour just worked, so why mess with it.


I misted on the background for a little more colour and 'texture'.  I need to get back to doing this more often.


Supplies:
PP, letters, trims, rub-ons, brads, chipboard banner - Bo Bunny
chipboard paws - Riff Raff
marker - Staedtler Triplus Fineliner
glimmer mist - Tattered Angels
stencil - The Crafters Workshop
ink - Ranger
