Designing for All About Scrapbooks......getting my B Side on!

Hi everyone, well can you believe it's Friday already?? 
And nearly halfway through December? Aaaargh!
So I got to play with the goregeous Basic Grey Range....'B Side' as part of my Design Team work for All About Scrapbooks. This layout is so fun and bright, and very suitable for teens, full of blacks, teals, yellows and pinks.  I have lots of pages planned  for my teenage daughter, but first I thought I'd create a page using none of the pink - which opens up the range to so much more (not that you can't use pink on a boys page, right?).
For this layout, I spread a little gesso, this time just using my finger.  I then stamped randomly with a Kaisercraft background stamp - triangles. I then started layering my papers together - and of course a bit of what was on my desk made it onto the page too (My Minds Eye - My Story),
I always keep my scraps on my desk from the last couple of layouts....and its amazing how many sneak their way onto my pages.  I find it really handy, plus I love mixing up ranges (might have something to do with my quilting background)!
Anyway, I've digressed......I took inspiration from the background stamp, and added some 2Crafty chipboard  (I love this triangle design - appearing on lots of my layouts recently) -  I covered the chipboard in paper from the range, and stuck them down in random clusters on the page.
And that's about it!
