I have been thinking about doing a scrapbook layout with a steam punk theme since I bought 7G’s lovely steam punk rub-ons (it’s been a while now).

Several weeks ago the layout started out with black and white paper but that didn’t make me happy, so I put it away and took it out again a few days later.  Adding red paper, I tried my hand at it again but that also didn’t please me and I had to pack up once more 😦  Sigh…

When I took it out last week I resolved not to put it away until it was completed.  This time I added Mail Room from Bo Bunny’s Et Cetera range with red and mustard in it and ta-da!  The heavens opened and the angels sang 🙂

double page layout

The steam punk graphics are printed on old library cards to add extra detail and lends itself to a strong, masculine layout.  The red paper on the top border is from FabScraps and the black and white print is 7G’s Old Newspaper Print.

The three embellishments were created by cutting them out of the Bo Bunny paper and covering it with dimensional glaze.  The steam punk rub-ons cover white space on the left page and I used it on the border, above the border and even on the paper tape on the right page.

The pictures of Kobus on his quad bike matched my layout perfectly and I love how the blue sky in some of the pictures provides a nice contrast to the mustard and red.

Keep warm this week and come scrap and bond on Saturday 18 August!
