If you have or had a teenager in your house you will know and relate to this post. This is such a crazy age. It seems like there are two different people in one person: on one hand a sweet boy, your little boy and on the other hand an angry, confused defiant boy. This is my boy, at almost 15...and this is a layout I created for him.
I wanted to create a divided layout, a page with two sides. I got the inspiration from the Chalk Studio collection by MME, which has beautiful designs in black and white. I started with the background of the layout and created a black shadow on the left side with black oil pastel and dark brown Gelato.
I added texture and dimension with stencils and stamps in coordinating colors of black and white. I used black acrylic paint for the black patterns and modeling paste and gesso for the white patterns. To combine the two sides together I also sprayed the page slightly with a light brown spray.
Then I added embellishments to complete the theme of the page. The embellishments are also coordinated with the two colors of the layout. On the right side a little more childish vibe with bicycle and starts and the left is more serious with a globe and a balloon symbolizing an independent man of the world. Make sure to watch the step by step video tutorial with the complete process of creating the layout.
Have fun creating!
