Well, we're back! Hope everyone's holidays were relaxing and filled with friends, food and fun. Looks like it's time to get back to work and school. For me, that means getting back into a routine and hopefully having time to get more scrapping done.
I wanted to share this page with you today. I love flowers. I have so many of them that I could use them on every project I create and still have tons left over. Since I'm the only female in my household, I usually use them on cards, layouts about me, or altered projects. But, I do sometimes use them on masculine pages, too. This page is an example of how to add them without making the page look too 'girly'. First, I started with a strong plaid backgound. I used small flowers and embellished them with buttons and star jewels. That way the flowers work as an accent, and your eyes aren't immediately drawn to them. Finally, I adhered the red and white cord around the circles to add some more texture to the page. And, yes, the journaling lines ARE all stitched. ;)
So, don't be afraid to add flowers to layouts about the men in your life. They add a beautiful touch to the page AND you can use up your stash!
Have a great day! ~Anabelle
