Hello 49 and Market friends! Today I am up on the blog with a masculine layout using papers from the Old School Collection, plus cogs from the “Timeless” Archival Board and cogs from the Serendipitous Laser Cuts.

I have used the paper “High School” as my background paper. The frame for the photo is from the Captured Adventures Laser Cut Sheet. I have used various layers of matting behind the photo, using the larger cream coloured frame from the Old School Collection Laser Cuts, and adding a black mat using the Old School “Off the Grid” paper, then cut out the “notebook” from the paper that has the cards and notes in the Old School collection, and then another layer of “Off the Grid” paper. I have then stuck this whole piece down only adhered through the centre, so I was able to add some blue chalking around the papers, and add some stamping. I have used the script stamp from Gabi’s Post Cards From Paris Stamp and stamped around the outside of the papers. I then covered up the photo with paper before adding white ink splatters on the page. The clock is from Vintage Remnants Frame Set No 02.

I have embossed a Dusty Attic chipboard called “Industrial Corners”, as well as the large cog arrangement plus the smaller cogs, nuts and bolts from the “Timeless” Archival Chipboard, as well the title “Memory” from the “Memory” Archival Chipboard set. I then rubbed some gilding wax over the embossed chipboard to give it a rusty effect. I have cut through the large cog cluster so that these can be placed on either side of the photo. I have used the Dusty Attic chipboard under my photo for dimension and that part of it sticks out from under the photo.

Once this was all set, I started layering the chipboard cogs and the cogs from the Serendipitous Laser Cut Sheet about the main cogs. I have also used the tag and the tickets from the Captured Adventures Laser Cut Sheet. I have also added some tiny blue glass micro beads to finish off.

I have added the book from the Old School Collection – and used the pieces to create a 3D book. I have created a nut and bolt effect by adding the nut and the bolt bit on top.
