Aspiring DJ Layout - Zva Creative - Glitz Design





Here's a closer look at the masculine layout I created for 
Zva Creative last week.


I really went to town on this one & HAD FUN!  
Something about this boy always brings out my funky side!!


I wanted to show how you can use BLING ON A BOY PAGE even though most people would initially not even consider the idea.


I built up my background with mists & stamps & used Prima alphas on my title (which I then went over with some matte multi-medium to secure).


I overlaid an entire bling flourish on top of a mess of tangled threads, which muted the 'bling' of the flourish, thus making it more manly.


I printed my photos small & my sentiment card large, to switch things up a bit.


I used some giant rhinestones from Glitz Design 'Yours Truly' Collection, as is the patterned paper base.


Thanks for stopping by today!  

I hope I have inspired you to break out the bling on your boy pages :)

Love the way you added masses of string to the bling (hey, that rhymes)! Also love the misting as the backdrop for the title.

Nicely done. I don't think adding bling to a masculine layout makes it girly at all. This looks awesome!
