Hello We R Memory Keepers fans! Soraya here with you today to share a masculine and shiny layout to celebrate all the best dads in the world!
To make this layout, I used different techniques such as screen print, gold foil, watercolor, mixed media lettering and a cool frame design made with the awesome Frame Punch Board that I love!
First of all I cut all the papers with the Supreme Ruler and its metal edge for accurate cutting. This tool is fantastic and so easy to work with!
On a white cardstock I applied some blue navy Art Screen Ink and with a scraper I put it all over this beautiful floral Art Screen by Heidi Swapp. Look at this fine and perfect pattern! Then I used the Minc Machine to add some gold foil. The result is absolutely amazing!
For the design of my layout, I played with the Frame Punch Board and made several different sizes and styles of frame to showcase the photo and the gold floral screen as well! Some mint watercolor came to give more dimension and softness to the screen!
Let’s have fun with some mixed media now! The Mini Alphabet Punch Board helped me creating the title, and for this I used the App on my phone. This is so cool! It’s like I’ll be able to take my tool away with me everywhere now, haha! Once done, I put some gesso on them and dried them with a heat gun.
Let’s go back to gold now with this fun technique using double sided tape and foil flakes! How cool is that? This is perfect to give extra accents to the frames!
Time to decorate the layout with buttons, resin flowers, stickers… and of course a touch of mint thread with this gorgeous Stitch Happy multimedia thread! And voilà! A beautiful and masculine layout for the best dad!
I hope you had fun joining me today and I hope you’ll be inspired by all those techniques. Can’t wait to see what you’ll create for this special day ! Happy creating everyone and have a nice week !
