Simple Boys Layout

Have you ever wanted to keep it simple, well this is my attempt at using a pack that I had and that is all!! No adding on, which for me was very hard. I overthink, everything. 
But not this time!!!

This page is based around a photo of my boy Jackson. He has this laugh that is amazing and totally cheeky, but very infectious. Because it was such a great photo I wanted to keep my layout nice and simple as to not take away from the picture.

I have used Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots to give some dimension to the transparency cogs on this page. I have distressed the edge on the Navy Cardstock. I like to map out my page and if I put something in the right hand corner I will do it again in the left hand opposite corner. Just to keep my page balanced.

The Silver Cogs are a die cut paper, so easy and so effective. I have glued them down with Helmar Acid Free Glue. I used this same glue on eveything else on the page.
I finished off the page with some eyelets to add some metal and a metallic pen to box the page in with a frame. Here are some close-ups:

It is was fun to try and just use two colors on a page. Blue and Silver.
Once I lay everything on the page, the glueing is the fun bit.

Thanks for stopping by, and don't forget sometimes it is fun to Keep It Simple!
Time to get your Glue On!!
