Boot Camp (Designed for C'est Magnifique)
Have you seen the Maja Design Vintage Papers? They're gorgeous and they're available at the C'est Magnifique store and in their August Kit. Leslie was really clever in designing this kit because not only are these papers feminine but she also chose some papers that can be worked as masculine pages too. Here's an example of the papers I chose to create this masculine page of my bf's dad when he was in boot camp. All the elements, flowers and pattern papers are from the August kit. I added a background technique that I have been experimenting with on my art journal pages too. The background was created with mulberry paper, script stamp, gel, gesso, and mists.
