I wanted a rough teenage look and so I distressed the edges of 11x11 white card with Orange and Black ink and mounted it onto 12x12 Black Striped patterned paper that I had in my stash.
I then splattered some orange ink in random places.
I mounted the photo onto orange cardstock and then layered the kit patterned paper underneath. Distressing the edges in black so it would pop from the white background.
The Gorgeous Cogs from the Kit made a great embellishment cluster along the left side of the photo.
I used the Kit Epoxy Flairs and Round Paper Clip across the top coupled with some circle patterned paper punches from my stash
I also added a layer of triangle to the top to go with the circles and geometric patterns on the Kit patterned paper.
To the right I used some Chipboard Alpha Tiles in my son's initials, this is also the nickname he started using in his teens.
The Title is using a mixture of fonts with chipboard and stickers which I have coloured a dark brown to blend.
To add a bit of interest I have used both numbers and letters to combine the theme of Teen and being 18.
Below is the complete layout. I really love the Circles and Geometric shapes in this layout giving it an edgy teen look.
