JT Layout - Studio 75

Hello everyone & HAPPY WEEKEND!!
I am up on the Studio 75 blog HERE today with this new layout
using the Mr & Mrs Black Collection papers.  

As it is a masculine layout I used a dramatic colour scheme of gold & black
as well as more masculine elements such as the graphic straws & metal binder clip.

The photo is of my son who enjoys writing & singing rap music.
The JT photo above is of a graphic made by my other son, who helps
him with his music by producing it for him as well as working on all the digital imagery.

I used all sorts of textural elements here, including mica,
 microbeads, thread & tassles.  

The Studio 75 papers are so versatile - I love to use them!
You can decide which way you want to go with them rather than them deciding for you
& that, in my book, is a big plus as I like to be free to choose my own colour schemes. 

The neutral tones also mean that any inkwork, splashes & drips also show up
great against them.  I used some large gold/mustard Prima flowers under my
photos.  I cut them in half to stretch my stash further & give the appearance
that the rest was underneath the photo - a good trick for being more economical
with your supplies.  I hope you enjoyed your visit today - thanks for stopping by!!

Don't forget about our monthly challenges - this month is to use anything
METAL on your project.  It is not compulsory to use Studio 75 products
but if you have some & do use it then please mention what it is. 
 Prize is a 30 Zloty voucher to the Studio 75 online store HERE

I REALLY REALLY (where is the underline button) love what you are doing with the straws. Aren't kids cool? Working together too. That is so awesome. I really love the cut in half flowers too. I always imagine that the other half is really under every thing else but then I know it's not.
