One of the papers has all these masculine images on them. I cut a couple out and paired them with another sheet of paper. I kept the layout pretty simple, a little mixed media and minimal embellishments. However, I really like how it turned out.
I used items from the main kit, the bonus chipboard kit as well as the mixed media kit. I pulled in a couple of things from my stash to add as well. I think the texture is what makes this layout.
Here are some close ups:
The music note flower is from my stash. I thing the kraft color keeps it masculine. I used a woodgrain stencil and modeling paste for texture. I added some random stamping with a crackle stamp. I finished it off some splatters with the Lindy's mist from the mixed media kit.
The title chippie was initially white, I colored it with the brown chalk ink from the main kit. If you do this, make sure you give it a blast with your heat tool to dry the ink (it will smudge).
I added some stenciling, stamping and splatters to the opposite side of my layout to balance it out. Sometimes it doesn't take much to make a masculine layout.
Here are the kits I used for this layout:
That's all I have for today, thanks for stopping by.
