Hello everyone!

Today I decided to create a masculine layout using a mixture of layered embellishments, chipboard, papers and laser cuts.

The frame is from the Serendipitous Mini Collection Easy Cut sheet. The frame has been cut out and adhered to the B side of the “The Journey” paper from the Captured Adventures Collection. I have sanded the frame and then dry-brushed some gold paint over the frame. I have stamped on the background paper and then started layering with laser cuts from the Vintage Remnants Frame Set No 01, using the page piece. This I cut about an inch and half off the bottom, distressed and then sanded it.

The chipboard chain and the clock come from the Memory Captured Archival Chipboard, and the title from the Great Outdoor Archival Chipboard set. These have been painted with rusty paint, and has the grit in it to resemble rust. I have then layered cogs from the Serendipitous layered embellishments, and leaves from the Ethereal layered embellishments. I have finished off adding some prills to the layout.
