Grungy Male Layout and an Alterned 12x12 Album
by Elena Martynova

Hello my dear 2Crafty friends!!
It's Elena here today to share some inspiration with you all.
My first project is layout with a photo of my husband and my son.
 The boys love to ride on motorcycles and shoot machine guns :)))
My  family went to the Black sea, and this picture was taken there.

For this layout I have used a bit of mixed media and stamping.  Lots of splatters :)
 As background I used a sheet of collection  Hazy Days by 7 Dots Studio.

 The main decoration is a chipboard from 2Crafty Chipboard. I had to special order the title
"Father and Son. Moment " for this page. Ah and Steampunk Gears Medium, too, :)))

 I have embossed all chipies in Lindy's embossing powder.

For my second March project I made big male album.
It  is intended as a gift to the man on the anniversary. The cover is covered with suede fabric.
 I used a lot of different chipboards, you can see the full list at the end of the post.
 In the meantime, I invite you to consider the details of the album.


Chipboard covered with two multi-colored powders from Lindy's.
 The main decoration of the cover is a beautiful guitar.


 I like to add headlines to my work. For male work the words "Always follow your dreams"
 fits just perfectly. In addition, the hero of the day is a very respectable man who has
 own business and achieved a lot in life.

 I painted the gears with alcohol ink and varnished them with craquelure.
I really liked the result - the old rusted parts.

 I cut the background chipboard into pieces of irregular shape and added it to the album's pages.

 Sometimes I stick one chipboard right on top of the other.
I like how it turns the volume and layering.

 On this page I used the chip Angel wings that anyone can be confused with men's mustache :)))

 The album has a lot of open designs and secrets. I invite you to watch the video,
 where all this is clearly demonstrated.
