When I first saw the new Prima Craftsman range I knew that I wanted to use these patterned papers for a male layout as the designs are just perfect for that. I knew that somewhere I would find the right photograph - and after going through the mountain of photographs I have I found the perfect ones!
I wanted to keep the layout fairly simple as I didn't want to distract from the photographs. I used a grey card for the base and layered this up with a square of Prima Craftsman 'Draftsman' (used the reverse side). I then used the reverse side of 'Gear Up' for layering on top of this patterned paper.
I used a Tim Holtz Sanding Grip to distress the edges of all the patterned papers before inking the edges. I inked up a Tando Creative chipboard cog (Heart Cog Mix) and added some metal coloured brads as embellishments. The title is made from MME Lush chipboard alphabet stickers and Prima Tiny Alphabet Stickers.
Do you find it difficult making cards, layouts or craft projects for men? Leave a comment on this post and if you qualify, I will enter your name into the blog candy draw. Thanks for stopping by and good luck.
