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.
