Work Hard, Play Hard
Geometric Shapes And Masculine Accents
Today's page is a little different from my usual layouts. These photos were taken of my husband in the early 90s back when he was a pro body boarder. Because the photos are so masculine, I tried to reflect that in my page. Most of my pages are pretty girly so I had to conscientiously lay off the flowers and glitter.
I started with basic blue card stock and raided my drawer of paper scraps for paper to make the diamonds along the top. I really had to raid my stash to find things that weren't overly feminine, and even then I wasn't able to completely avoid girly fonts and pastels. I embellished around the matted photos with chipboard cutouts from K & Company and Mixed Media stickers by Momenta. I added a line of polka dot Kimono washi tape along the bottom, and added miscellaneous brads, tags and buttons.
Today's layout was take from Stuck?! Sketches' January challenge. I knew immediately I wanted to recreate this sketch because I really liked all the diamonds that made the page so unique. I didn't have four small photos so used two larger ones instead.
I found my color palette on Design Seeds. I liked the range of greenish blues and yellows and thought they would compliment all the blue ocean in my photos nicely.
That's all for now! Thanks for dropping by my blog scrappers!
