Masculine Inspiration With The Blue Fern Studios Timeless Collection~

The Blue Fern Studios Timeless Collection with it's grungy, darker more Vintage look papers inspired me to create the following masculine layout of my son, Draven. I just used the papers in a way that omitted or covered up the more feminine floral designs to leave me with designs that worked perfectly for that no flower, all edginess of masculinity.

I started with a a layer of Timeless Main Street Paper, and then tore and layered in corrugated board pieces that I two tone misted and Timeless Papillons and Artistique Papers.

I did some edge curling on some of the paper and then inked them to match the corrugated board colors.

Next, I added in Blue Fern Roman Clock Chipboard.

I then took some Blue Fern Cogs And Gears Chipboard pieces, and heat embossed them with Imagine Ink Honey and Ebony Embossing Powders, and layered them onto the clock pieces.

I also used Blue Fern Frolic Mesh Chipboard that I cut into pieces and colored with a distress marker and tucked into random places throughout the layout. I added various metal pieces to round out the finishing touches for the layout. 

Here you can see all the dimension and textures that the layers of papers and chipboard created.

I know a lot of you tell me that masculine work is a real challenge for you, but the Blue Fern papers and quality chipboards really do make it easy to pull a gorgeous masculine piece off!! Thank you so much for checking out my April work, and I hope you have fun creating!! Hugs~Renea
