Masculine LOVE Layout

September 11, 2011 at 2:51 pmCategory:Scrapbooking

Do you struggle with masculine layouts and cards? So many of the beautiful scrappy items on the market are very feminine, right? I love flowers, sparkles and butterflies and get excited to cut the papers, spray the shimmery mists and add the bling. When I scrap pics of my amazing hubby, Marty, I have to think a little outside of my comfort zone. I am loving the Flying Unicorn Kit of the Month and wanted to push myself to use it for a layout of my sweet love. The papers had several sheets covered in pinks and girly designs. There were others that had beautiful blues, greens & creams. I guess it’s about looking at your supplies through a different “lens” to make them work for your art. Even the pink papers can be altered with a few sprays of Glimmer Mist or brush strokes of paint.
How about those awesome letters for the title? I recently bought a Pink Paislee Warehouse grab bag box. I haven’t always had the best of luck when I bought grab bags in the past. BUT-this was AWESOME! I got well over $200 worth of current, useable, FAB goodies for about $50! I think I got more than 50 bucks just in paper. The letters came in the box and I altered the heck out of them. Glimmer Mist, tearing and Crackle Accents made the perfect title for this page.

I picked out some very neutral flowers and embellishments for the layout. See that fabric trim-that is muslin from the KOM which I sprayed with Glimmer Mist. Once it was dry, I sewed it to the layout! So, think outside the box and don’t be afraid to use your stash for manly layouts & cards.

Central Park Layout

LOVE the September Kit from Flying Unicorn! It is packed with soft colors and beautiful embellishments. I couldn’t wait to play with the Distress Paint & little wooden frames. I used this collection to create a layout of a beautiful day that I spent in Central Park, NYC with my artsy fab friends.

I love altering anything that I use in my art. So many amazing products are introduced into the market everyday but I enjoy the challenge of making them my very “own”. I spray, paint, alter, stamp, mist…you get the idea! These little wooden frames were screaming for my funky techniques! This one used Crackle Accents, paper and some distress inks.
LOVE Distress Paints! Doesn’t the paint make this frame look like it has been sitting around for ages?!
This frame took on a life of its own when I tried a little experiment with Tissue Tape and Distress Paint! Want to learn the techniques that I used on these frames? Check out the Flying Unicorn & Heidi Bound UStream Show on September 15th at 7pmEST. I will show you these cool techniques that can be used on chipboard, wood and paper. Hope to see you there!
