“You are the best FATHER ever” by Amy Voorthuis

Hello again 49 and Market friends,

For today I am sharing another 12×12 layout but this time it´s a masculine one, I find making those very hard because I really like to use flowers on my work especially when they are from 49 and Market. When I saw this months challenge over at More Than Words “steampunk & father” I was sold and wanted to create a layout using a picture of my husband and son. For this layout I used three collections “Flower Fairies of Spring”, “Vintage Artistry” and “Scents of Nature”and a whole bunch of chipboard pieces by The Dusty Attic and metal embellishments like gears, clocks and hearts.

I had so much fun creating this layout but it took me a long time to make it. Normally it takes me five hours to complete a layout this one took me eight I think it’s because there is so much chipboard on it that I had to make steampunk and aged. The pictures are from about seven years ago taken on the beach in my country.

Up in the right corner I aged a prima rasin frame with the amazing new waxes by Finnabair oh boy how I love that stuff and it smells very good too. When I treated my gears corner I placed it on a blue colored sheet from the “Scents of Nature”collection because I wanted to add more color. When I think of steampunk I always think about the colors black, orange and brown but you can add all colors you prefer any color looks amazing on a steampunk layout.

I took out a whole bunch of metal embellishments that I all used on my work, at the end of my creating I added some micro beads and some prills. But before that I stamped on the edges of my layout to later on distress it. Two days ago I bought a whole bunch of new metal goodies for really cheap that I used it right away on my layout.
