Two Scrapbook Friends asked that we create masculine themed projects for our hop and I chose a layout of my father and me. I managed to scrapbook everyone else in my family but my poor Dad! I don't have that many PICTURES of him since he is fairly camera shy, but I treasure those I do. For this project I wanted to choose a paper line that was masculine but allowed me versatility in my creative expression. Authentique's Glory line was perfect.
I began with a kraft card stock as my base and added red acrylic paint splatters. The navy blue pattern matches my Dad's shirt and the red hearts are fussy cut from another pattern.
I stitched each heart to the navy paper alternating randomly between a messy zig zag and a messy straight. I added red brads to accent the pattern. I also cut a large heart with my Silhouette and traced it onto the design with a light pencil line. I then used the sewing machine to stitch twice around in red.
My title is created using my Silhouette and I used the SNF Lollihop font. The Authentique letters made the sub title so easy. Finally a small embellishment cluster in the lower left and a few bits and pieces of washi tape.
I hope you have been inspired by something new! You are heading off to see what Shelby has created. Until next time, keep doing what you love.
