FF#83...for the MEN!

Happy Friday! one fall out of their chairs or anything...or gasp too loudly in shock...but I have actually got a project of my own to show you today for this week's Fashionista Friday challenge!  Was able to spend some time scrapping the past day or so and managed to create (and this might really be the shocker) a LO for you to see!  This week's challenge (FF#83) at the Shoe is to create a Masculine themed project!  Woohoo!  Here is my sample:

and a close up to show you some of the different bits and the background paper):

Had a lot of fun working with the different elements in this LO.  I used some Tim Holtz Kraft Resist and it is DELIGHTFUL!  I inked it up, splashed some Adirondack color wash on it, and all worked out (and nothing soaked through the back, good sturdy kraft here)! Ok...lots of plans for me and the hubby today, so I'll catch you later!

Supplies: Paper - Tim Holtz Kraft Resist and Crowded Attic from idea-ology; Distress Ink - Frayed Burlap, Walnut Stain, Rusty Hinge; Distress Stains - Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain; Grungeboard and Gadget Gears die cut from Sizzix Alterations; Grunge alpha's; small alpha's from Maya Road;  Adirondack color wash in Espresso; Adirondack paint dabber in Juniper and Gold; Perfect Pearls Mists in Heirloom Gold; Ruler Ribbon, Type Charms and Game Spinner by Tim Holtz from idea-ology


  1. That came out really good! I am so terrible at l/o's for men! I need to get better though considering I have a husband and 3 sons!

  2. Fabulous LO lesley! I like all the fun elements you've added!
