Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

September 30th is the Boys Day that we celebrate in Poland (although the International Boys Day is some other time). It’s not as popular as Women’s Day, but being the only woman in the house I have little choice but celebrate it 😀 And so, for this occasion I made a lyaout featuring my boys:

I chose the Denim&Friends collection because its’ my favourite and it’s the most awesome masculine collection to use for a boy page 🙂 I used a plain Monochromes paper for the background and added some stamping and a stencil pattern. Then I hand-cut some tags and banners for the photo I put in the centre:

I also stamped magnolia images onto one of the patterned papers and added some shading with Distress inks and gold acrylic paint for the centres:

Both my boys love reading, and both chose math as their major at school (why?why? 😀 ), so I added a chipboard square set and stamped book pile using the paper piecing technique:

I think the layout turned out really fine, nicely dimensional yet flat enough to go into a frame or an album. There are flowers, but “masculine” enough 🙂 What do you think?

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamps, chipboard, stencil: Agateria; stickers: MAMBI; sequins: my stash.

That’s all for today, see you later!
