'Just Smile, so special, so you' layout designed for 49 and Market

Good morning friends and welcome, so glad you could join me.

Today I would like to share with you a 'boy' layout using the ever so gorgeous 'Vintage Remnants' collection. It has got a very grunge but at the same time soft and sweet designs to it, perfect for all sorts of occasions.

Just Smile, so special, so you

I just love my flowers so I still add them to my boy layouts however to make it less feminine I usually use subtle colours and lots of other grunge elements like some corrugated cardboard and the gorgeous Dusty Attic Chipboard Cogs. I simply added some pewter embossing powder in a random fashion and it gave it this fantastic 'metal' look, so happy with how that turned out.

To balance all the darker colours I added some gorgeous white flowers among all the layers as well as some yellow burlap tucked in here and there. It creates some lovely highlights I think.

The other day I was also so pleased to find some preserved moss in a dollar store. Grabbed a few bags of it as I knew it would come in handy one day. I added some of this to this layout among the chipboard pieces and I just love the end result. Finished it off with my go to embellishment 'art stones'. Just love this stuff as well, it really finishes a layout perfectly by giving it that extra dimension.

Hope you like what I created here, hope I inspired you to get out your son's, grandson's or even brother and husband's photos and combine them with the beautiful 49 and Market Vintage Remnants Collection.

Until next time....
