Day 5 & I'm still in the game. This SK Marathon has really helped me a lot in finishing more pages. So moving on... the clue led me to Issa's blog where we found the 5th challenge. The challenge is to create a masculine layout with flourishes in it. Well I have been creating mostly girly layouts because I usually scrap photos of my little girl so this was quite new to me. My layout is simple but it took a while for me to finish it since I had to hand stitch the borders of my layout & the buttons on the flower centers. I love the look of stitches on cards & layouts so I might get me a sewing machine one of these days so I could work faster. Haha.
I used a black & white photo of Mark & Marcie for this layout so that I could have a masculine look. The colors I used are mostly red, blue & green which are usually colors for men. The flourishes I used are also blue & I added some black flower rub-ons near the title too. Here is my finished product:
Journaling: "Daddy spends most of his time at work & since he's on a night shift, you rarely get to play with him. I know you'll understand he's doing this for us. But you know he tries his best to spend time with you even when he's really tired. Remember daddy loves you."
