It's a Boy's world - Celebr8

Hallo there.  I was very honoured to be asked by Celebr8 to design pages for their new "You Rock"release.  As you know I am blessed to have 2 sons and 5 grandsons so I enjoy creating masculine pages.  I also like to stretch myself to use elements in a new way or to think outside the box when I decide on creating pages.  Here is the first page I made with a photo of my younger son, Wynand and our grandson Lukas:

Supply list:  Celebr8 You Rock collection,  Corrugated cardboard from my stash;  Letter stickers:  American Craft fabric chipboard letters;  Other mediums:  Acrylic paint,  Stickels (Golden Rod, Paprika, Blue Bayou), Lindy's Mist (Marigold Yellow); Distress Ink (Vintage Photo, Wild Honey), Embossing powder: Lindy's Cleopatra's Copper.

Some close ups: 
 The photos doesn't do justice and show the dimension on this page.  I cut the star from two patterned paper and from corrugated cardboard.  I love the effect of the corrugated cardboard.

 I used the stencil in the collection pack to add a layer behind the stars.  I believe it is the first time I use a chain on any of my pages.  I attached it to the top of the page with jump rings.

 I created this little cluster at the top to echo the addition of the corrugated cardboard star. The little stars have been heat embossed.

 I used some mistable fabric alphas that I coloured with Lindy's mist to a matching colour.  I twisted some of the string around the corrugated star for added interest.  The chipboard was painted with acrylic paint and then covered with Stickels.

I added another little cluster to the bottom left to balance the layout.

This photo gives you a better idea of the dimension on this page.
