We've sure been that, almost 25 years already! Through thick and thin! Today I would like to share with you the process of making this more masculine layout.
Most of the items I've used are from this months Your Passion Your Art - Main Kit, the Small Art Big Passion Kit and the Mixed Art Passion Kit and some things from previous kits and things I had lying around. I also finally got a around to use the new Prima Metal Die - Vintage Clock.
I started of with one of the sheets from the 13 @rts Secret Letter Collection and adhered some corrugated cardboard to the right hand side of the paper. All I used was a part of one of the boxes my kit came in. Recycling at it's best. Just rip off the top and it looks best if it's not too neat.
I cut out a square piece of paper (6x6) and a different piece (4x6) ran the die through my machine twice. Once with a black piece of backing from a Prima Flower pack and once with paper from the 6x6 pack in the Small Arts Kit. Some inking around the edges and we're ready to start sticking it down.
Since I want to keep the colors on this layout to a minimum I used to top of the flower pack as a tag and backing for my pictures. From last months kit I used the cute wooden ruler as an accent and cut arrows out of jute ribbon.
The basics of my layout are done, we just have to decorate with flowers, a title and some other litle things.
Below a few more close-ups of my layout and a list of used products.
Thank you for looking!
Have a fantastic day!
