I have never thought that flowers are only for girls. I always believe flowers work well with boys as well and it definitely does not make them sissy. My obsession with flowers does not make me wish that I have a girl instead so I can make pretty little stuff for her. In fact, I created lots of projects and layouts using flowers for my hubby and son and I think they look wonderful!
With the release of an awesome huge range of new collection from Prima Marketing, I practically wiped off the shelf in my local scrapbooking store! Lol! The moment I laid my eyes on them, I knew I had to add them to my existing collection of Prima stuff.
I’d love to share with you a page that I’ve created using lots of yummy Prima goodies from the new 2010 Winter collection. I cut out part of the flourishes from the Shabby Chic “Grape Twilight” paper and adhered it onto a white cardstock at the bottom right corner of the page.
I then cut out a frame from Hambly Studio “All Mixed Up” overlay , inserted it below a picture of my boy, which was matted with maroon color cardstock. I also cut out the flower flourish from the Raspberry Tea “Peach Cobbler” paper and layered them under the picture.
I created layers of flowers and leaves on the left side of the picture to add some texture to the layout.
Next, I added some crystal from “Say It With Crystal* to the top right corner of the picture, which adds a little more dimension to the layout.
I completed this layout with a clutter of more flowers, leaves and crystal at the bottom right corner of the picture. The title “Precious” is from the Shabby Chic Journaling Chipboard.
And voila! Here’s the finished layout with lots of beautiful Prima products……flowers, leaves, crystal and papers……..a feminine touch but still works perfectly for a boy.
Don’t be afraid to use flowers for boys or men layouts, they will look great!
