Scrap The Boys - August

Hi bloggers, long time no scrappy share. 
Sorry but as I mentioned in my last post I plan to spam my blog with layouts in the next few days!
Look out!
This one's for Scrap The Boys.
Monochromatic, chipboard and twine.
The boys of course are Bruce Springsteen on the left and my Hubby 
on the right (just incase you weren't sure!!) 
Greg is very attached to his T-Shirt collection most of them acquired during his travels to various countries and he keeps them forever! 
As you can see this one is an original from Bruce's 1985 tour of Australia.
Let me tell you the fabric in a 28 year old t-shirt gets very, very thin and worn!

We went to the outdoor Wrecking Ball tour concert at Hanging Rock in March this year.
Totally awesome amazing concert!

The chipboard are chevrons from 2Crafty Chipboard that I've inked black.

Yep I think this is monochromatic alright!
I used a Ronda Palazzari - subway stencil, which is great for some subtle texture 
under the not so subtle but ever gorgeous and bright Dylusions sprays.

And the twine threaded through my journalling tags. 

Thanks for popping by, see you soon. 


  1. This looks amazing, fabulous textures in the back ground and love the photos too...great take on the challenge...

  2. I went to a concert in '85 and just yesterday nabbed a ticket for the tour next year! Can't wait to see him again!

  4. Love what you have created for the August STB challenge, Leonie.....and so awesome that your hubby still has that t-shirt. Awesome colour on your layout (love orange!) and your other elements look great as well.

  5. Sooo much to love about this layout Leonie! Love the Dylusions, the stenciling, the pics and the twine. But I want to know how come you ladies all got tickets for the Feb Concert. I tried the pre-sale then the sale and couldn't get anything decent.
