Hello there! It’s Riikka here today to share a page with you. I used a monochromatic background paper and a photo but added colors with watercolors and acrylic paints.
The photo in the page is taken by my daughter. She just loves to take photos! Unfortunately the little camera we had broke and now we only have the big SLR cameras which are too heavy for her to hold and use. But luckily I have photos from that little camera. Some of them were just screens of black or grey, but in the middle of those there’s pearls like this – a shot from the floor with the toys around and her sister’s foot as well.
I titled the layout with the word “keyhole” as these pictures present like a keyhole to their, her and her sister’s, games. Of course I can and will watch them play but it’s not the same when they notice that they’re being watched. Then it becomes more of a performance than just pure play. There’s something captivating and magical in the photos she has taken as I get to peek inside her world, see through her eyes. So of course I had to add a keyhole chippie into the layout. I colored it black using a felt pen.
I started the page by adding the chipboard alphas to the page. I just used whatever letters I had left so there’s not a certain word underneath the composition. Then I colored the letters and around them using new Prima watercolors and then layered some stenciling on top using Modeling Paste and the “Words of Wisdom” stencil – it’s one of my favorites, the letters are just the right size! I also used the “Triangles” stencil to draw some shapes to the background and “Chevron Border” stamp to stamp a few arrows on the right side.

The goggles and panel were covered with different embossing powders. I’ve also added some textured pastes and microbeads.
The propeller was colored with alcoholic inks and cradle accent
And some close-ups:
The dangle corner was covered with different embossing powders.
The propeller was colored with silver and copper alcohol inks. While it was still wet I heated it with a hit gun to achieve such a spotty surface:
Well, that’s it for today!
Thank you for stopping by!
Hope I inspired you to create something masculine!
I love how they create another layer with detail on the page.
And the great thing is, I have so much left over that I can use on another project.
I wanted to create a page that captured my daughter picking flowers, to make it soft and feminine without adding “big detail”. I think the pieces I chose for this page were just perfect, especially the Continuous Love Title.

Hello! My name is Valia Katzaki and I am from sunny Greece! I am a working mother of three and a passionate scrapper for the past four years.
My style is a bit vintage, a bit shabby, filled with tons of flowers with
a touch of mixed media. I mostly do layouts but I love altered items as well.

This is a romantic shabby layout with some powerful details.
All chipboard have been treated with two embossing powders, bronze and dark teal, to achieve a rust/patina effect.
The mini bouquet is a perfect match to the graffiti hearts.
The heartscrawl chipboard was cut into smaller pieces and tucked into the flower cluster.
This is a bold and dramatic layout with soft details.
All chipboard have been painted with gel medium mixed with iridescent mica powders.
The blooming heart was painted with mica and then covered with glass glitter and pink microbeads for extra sparkle. The mini bouquet was heat embossed with black powder and while it was hot, sprinkled with black microbeads for extra texture.
A piece of the heartscrawl chipboard was cut to make a single heart.
The Lovebirds title and Love to Infinity chipboard were painted with a mixture of mica powders and gel medium.
The blooming bird was painted with mists and silks with an ombre effect. After it dried, it was covered with crackle glaze.
The chipboard were painted directly from an ink pad with no gesso, in order to achieve a darker color, and then it was sprayed with a pearl mist to give it extra shine. I cut off the words from the graffiti hearts and used them to compliment the other heart chipboard. They layer beautifully!
