It Takes a Real Man to be a Dad – Creative Embellishments May challenge

For the Creative Embellishments May Challenge, there’s an inspiration photo to combine with a sketch created by Nicolle. Like several others, I was inspired by the flowers in the inspo image, so I incorporated flowers on what at first appears to be quite a masculine page. I also loved the visual texture of the mountains, so I selected papers that mimicked them to me (the blue papers). From the sketch I carried over the circle elements from the background and incorporated the splatters, circular rope frame and matted my photo with a panel (the steampunk gear panel). I replaced the element on the lower right with elements from the baby, baby, baby wood veneer set. For this layout, I decided to leave my pieces bare to go with the earthy feel of the background. Here’s how my example turned out:
