This is my last project this month for the October Scrapbook Kit at Tres Jolie Kits.
I have created a masculine page this time, I know most of the time I stick to the floral shabby chic style layout but I do like to do the occasional masculine layout, especially as I do have a son to scrap about!
I have used a reverse side of one of the beautiful papers in the kit… and I think this layout puts a completely different spin on this kit… looking at the kit photo you wouldn’t think you could create a layout like this but you can!
Its always good to see how these beautiful kits can also be used for masculine layouts – don’t forget the boys!!! LOL
I have photo process below for you to show you how I created this layout.
I started with the reverse of one of the floral 13Arts papers, I do love these black neutral papers, they are so easy to use for masculine pages. I did brush over some clear gesso to prepare the pare for lots of misting!
I used the Ayeeda mist in the kit over the background paper, I sprayed it and also undid the top and flicked the inner tube over the layout to get the splats.
The chipboard I altered using a VerDay Patina set. I used the Bronze colour, painted it over the chipboard and then added the patina solution in different places to create the mottled/ old metal effect over the chipboard. Allow to dry naturally.
Going back to the background paper now its dry, I used the Prima stencil from the kit and added areas of white texture paste over the paper.
Next I splattered a lot of white gesso over the layout, spritzed it with water and picked the paper up upright and allowed all the liquids to ‘run’ on the paper. Dry with a heat tool.
Next I splattered some Color Bloom Antique Gold mist over the background. Again I take the lid out and use the inner tube to flick the colour over.
When dry I then rubbed some Viva Inka Gold over some of the raised texture paste areas with my finger.
The photo I layered up on 3 distressed patterned paper layers, all slightly off set to each other.
I inked the edges up with an archival ink,
Now its time to put the layout together. I placed the photo centrally and added the chipboard words from the 12×12 chipboard sheet – I loved that sheet! I left these chipboard words in their nude state.
The big chipboard scroll I cut into two – basically one piece was 2/3 rds. of the total chipboard piece and the part I cut off was 1/3rd of it.
I then slotted the bigger piece under the photo layers on the right and the smaller piece in the photo layers on the left.
I added more chipboard words on top of the scroll and then added the blue and beige flowers from the kit! It still looks quite masculine though!
I added a little detail with items from my stash, some oval and teardrop druzzy beads and some seed beads. I just drop the seed beads into some gel medium and leave to dry.
I found these teal buttons whilst looking for the seed beads and thought they were perfect for the colour scheme so I added a couple of those under the layers too to finish the layout off.
Here are some close ups of the layout…..
