Cool Dude!

Cool Dude!

Hi!  It's Chantalle, back again today with another layout, this time featuring the So Rad collection.  I have been itching to use this picture of my DS against a painted mural, which was taken on a recent trip to Bondi Beach in Sydney. I just love how these two hot dogs coordinate with their cool sunglasses! ‘So Rad' could not be a more perfect fit for capturing this moment on paper.

I was inspired by the artistic print on this So Rad ‘Chillin’. I wanted to build on the theme by adding a Gesso base. Simply applied with an old loyalty card, it adds to the painted elements and also provides a more focused area on which to build up my photo layers.

Once the gesso was dry, I added an ‘extreme awesome’ 12 inch sticker from the So Rad  Fundamentals sticker sheet. I really love that these stickers are a full 12 inches in length. It can be annoying when one goes to use a sticker like this and it doesn’t fit all the way across the page. By placing it diagonally. I am creating continuation with this awesome ‘extreme awesome’ photo overlay, which comes as a bonus in the So Rad collection kit!

Add a touch of grunge by distressing chipboard stickers with a sanding block. Under my photo I have adhered a pocket horizontally. You will find a couple of these handy guys, as well as some super cute die cut shapes in the So Rad Sn@p Cards pack. I’ve journalled on a 3x4 card from the pack and ever so slightly trimmed it and tucked it into the pocket.

The circular elements in the pack of So Rad photo stickers tie in the nicely with the small circular finishing touches.
