Kathy's rugged masculine layout

Good morning, one more day until the weekend begins!

Today we've got a wonderfully masculine layout to inspire you for weekend scrapbooking:

Scraps of Darkness scrapbook kits: Kathy Mosher created this rugged masculine layout with our Sept. Tanya's Industrial Odyssey Kit.

Here's what Kathy says about this layout:

So excited to share the SOD September kit - Tana's Industrial Odyssey!!  It's filled with the Kaisercraft "Time Machine Collection" and Marion Smith's "Timekeeper" collection.  Perfect for the masculine side of my scrapping adventure.  Let's get started with my first lo of my son, Patrick.  I absolutely adore this photo of him!  It really shows his Alaskan demeanor, rough, rugged, and ready for adventure!

I started with both the background papers from the Timekeeper Paper Pattern Add-On.  I ripped the top piece, distressed the edges.  I then stenciled the little squares on the background using modeling paste.

There are so many patterned cards and tags in the kit, I just had a ball layering them around the photo.  There were stickers, and little crystals that I used to added some elements to the page.

I embossed some chipboard from my stash using the Lindy's Stamp Gang embossing powder included in the Color Add-On.  Really love how they turned out.  I also backed them with pattern paper which I fussy-cut to put behind the inner portion of the clock and then backed the whole piece with cork.  I used a cog that was included as part of the Main Kit and some large clock hands for the lower clock.

Finally, I added some mica flakes, glitter and micro beads in various places around the layout (frame).

So many fabulous details on Kathy's layout, and it's the perfect inspiration for those "outdoors men" photos you have waiting to be scrapped!  A little more about Kathy's layout:

This month some of our designers and some of the members in our Facebook Community Group are participating in a  Scraplift Round Robin.  We have four teams, each lead by one of our talented designers.  The way it works, one of our designers "scraplifts" a layout from one of the other participating designers, and then the next lucky lady on the round robin team will scraplift her creation.  Kathy was paired with Lynne, one of our SOE designers,  and lifted a sweet layout that Lynne created with the November 2014 Sweet Sentiments kit.  Keep checking in for more wonderful scraplifts from our design team.  This is the layout Lynne created that Kathy lifted:


Stop back tomorrow to see some gorgeous off the page projects we have to share!
