Father's day draws near, and of course, I'm again last minute shopping (unsuccessfully, I might add) to get the man in our lives something special. This is where you can see me frantically browsing the web for ideas. Hopefully, I'll be able to get something by tomorrow. Miss C will no doubt be making something for her daddy to accompany the gift(s).
One thing I am on top of is my Father's day layout.
I love this photo so much. It's so poignant as it shows some quality father/daughter bonding time together. Just that image against the waves make it a little teary eyed.
The fabric flowers, leaves and meshing really add texture to the page and lends a girly juxtaposition to a predominantly male layout.
I raided my stash for all things "crown". Didn't find many, but this was one of them.
For the background, I sprayed and inked through a "cracks" stencil. I then spread molding paste through a harlequin stencil, before spritzing and outlining some of the diamonds. I really like the burlap and raw cardboard. Such a masculine feel.
I found this quote online (author unknown) and it just hit a cord.
