I kept a very horizontal look to this very simple layout and added a title that I cut with my Cricut (Calligraphy Collection) and distressed with some Ranger Distressing Inks (vintage photo & gathered twigs) Two of my handmade flowers top off this layout and of course some Prima leaves tucked in there. I am SO not afraid to put flowers on my boy layouts - not even a little!
I used Ranger Distress Stain in Picket Fences to tone down the beautiful pine cone paper so that I could journal on it. I altered the colour on the button to my liking by using my copic markers and giving it a textured look. My favorite chipboard letters from Basic Grey (Piper in Milk Chocolate Chip - and had I known they would discontinue making them I would have bought 50 packages!!!) I made my own flowers as usual - two different styles; and if you are interested in learning some of my flower techniques I suggest that you sign up for my flower making class that I will be giving at Tina's Scrapbooking Creations on April 25th. I supply all the materials and show you how to make 5 different flowers to add to your layouts, cards and altered projects, all for the amazing low cost of $20!
