It's once again Wednesday, but here, it'll be another CAS-ual Friday! This week's challenge is "Bring the Bling" in a clean & simple way. Sometimes it's very easy to overdo it with bling, so I'm glad CAS-ual Fridays came up with the challenge.
My guy and I love dogs! The other day, we met a friend's 3-month old Boston Terrier puppy. He is one of the cutest puppies ever! I quickly snapped this pic of my guy totally melting while holding the pup. It was certainly "love at first sight"! I loved the moment and the pic, so I just had to scrap it!
The layout design has been floating in my head since I first saw the Paper Smooches Boob Tube set. I wanted the layout to be cute yet masculine... To achieve "cute", I incorporated a heart, rhinestones as telly knobs and electrical current accents, and the super adorable Boob Tube image. To achieve "masculine", I used muted colors/neutral patterns from Cosmo Cricket's Togetherness collection and Echo Park's For the Record collection, made it a little off-center for the "thrown-together" look, and industrial-looking wire antennas to top off the super cute Boob Tube image.
So whaddaya think? Can cute and masculine coexist? :)
Here's a closer look: The antennas were created by twisting wire around a skewer to desired length. I then removed the skewer and attached the wire to the page with white thread. (It looks invisible.) The electrical current was drawn freehand. The rhinestones and twisted wire give a doubly bling and shiny effect.
I adore the telly images from the Boob Tube set by Paper Smooches. They're so cute and versatile! Love! To give the layout some additional dimension, I used 3-D pop dots to affix the Boob Tube to the page.
Used: Cosmo Cricket pattern papers, Echo Park pattern papers and alphabet stickers, Paper Smooches Boob Tube stamp, staineless steel wire from my dad's garage stash, Me & My Big Ideas rhinestones, Bic Mark-it markers
Thank you for the great inspiration, CAS-ual Fridays! And thanks to the lovely Girl Fridays who stopped by my last post and so kindly left encouraging comments!
And lastly, a big thank you to Aussie Scrap Source for featuring my "Blooms" layout two weekends ago. I used the Martha Stewart/EK Success punches in many different ways in it and it's one of my favorite layouts. Check out the post for more inspiration!
Thanks for looking!
