Remember When~Going Masculine With Blue Fern Studios Memoires Collection

Today, I have my second, November, Blue Fern Studios Project, and it is a layout showing how you can use the Memories Paper Collection, along with Blue Fern Chipboard, and Imagine Ink Embossing Powders to create a Masculine layout.
The photo is one of my husband and his Dad when they were younger, and is one of those rare photos since they both do not like to be photographed, so I cherish it and keep the original on my mantel at home.

The bottom layer is a piece of  Memoires-Tales Of Treasures Paper that I spray stained the edges on. I added a torn, corrugated board strip down the middle that I spray stained, and inked,

and then I stamped around the board piece with a Blue Fern Studios Coarse Fabrics Stamp, and then heat embossed with Imagine Ink Ebony Embossing Powder for a nice, grungy effect.

I used a set of Blue Fern Studios Splattered Circles Chipboard, layering them together to form a perfect showpiece for my photo. I clipped the photo on with a metal clip and then topped it with a metal dream key.

The detail on the circles was create using layers of Imagine Ink Embossing Powders that include: Ebony, Peacock, and Nutmeg. I also added some black microbeads, creating a gorgeous texture!

I then cut apart some Blue Fern Studios Chained Bits Chipboard, heat embossed the pieces with Imagine Ink Ebony Embossing Powder, and added them randomly to my layout. I added on 2 metal clips to the top and bottom corner pieces, then cut out some sentiment pieces from the bottom strips that you cut of the papers ( they are the titles of the papers) distress and inked those and then clipped them into the clips.

With Masculine layouts, I don't like to use flowers or a lot of  "fru-fru" so here you can see how using those Blue Fern Products can really help you to create a gorgeous piece with a lot of detail and texture without a lot of the stuff that you would use on a feminine piece. 

Thank you for stopping by, and I hope that I have inspired you to think outside of the box and to create something a bit more masculine and grungy! Hugs ~Renea
