Tim Holtz Distress Inks (Vintage Photo), StazOn Archival Ink (Jet Black, Timber Brown), Zutter Distrezz it all tool, Tim Holtz Blending tool, Shapeabilities labels 18, The Robin’s Nest Dew Drops (Lily Pad, Forrest Fun), BoBunny Powder Mountain Jewels, 

This was a very fun layout to work on! I distressed to my heart's content! :)
I recently purchased the Zutter Distrezz it all tool and I have to say that I LOVE it! Of course, i put it to good use on this layout!

This is what the background looked like by the time I was done. I felt a little bad covering it up but then again, this is a scrapbook page therefore we are supposed to preserve memories and pictures, not our backgrounds! So, I finished my layout using my brother's ring ceremony pictures and kept the layout a bit more simple and masculine.

I added this sweet little bird and saying as my title because it was very fitting for these pictures. I made a few posies and added them randomly to the die cut title area to give it more interest and color.

Of course, I had to add flowers even in a masculine layout! I made these blue/brown flowers  and added dewdrops flower centers in neutral colors. Here's a quick tutorial for the flower centers.

Here's a close up of the flower center and a flower that I  made. Aren't these so adorable?

Finally, I finished the layout by adding some rhinestones in bright blue to liven this page up!

Here is the step by step write-up for this project:
Distress a 12”x12” pattern paper from the Countryside Evening Paper Collection. Randomly make tears on all the four sides. Distress with the Zutter Distrezz it all tool and ink the edges with the Tim Holtz Blending tool and Vintage Photo distress ink. Tuck in a dark blue pattern paper under the ripped areas and mat the whole thing on another sheet of pattern paper. Stamp the flourishes from the Petite Floral Swirls PreCut Set as shown: the large one on the top left corner, the medium one in the bottom right side and the small one closer to the left side. Stamp this one twice. Stamp the burlap background stamp twice side by side in the middle of the layout with Vintage Photo distress ink. Cut a strip of blue and brown paper, 0.75 and 1.50” thick respectively, and cut out a V from each tip. Adhere over the stamped burlap image as shown. Adhere two 3”x4” photos over the strips and stamped image. On a separate paper, stamp the bird image from the Melodious Songbird PreCut Set in brown. Die cut and emboss the image with the largest die from the Shapeabilities labels 18. Stamp the sentiment over it and ink the edges. Add this piece over the left bottom corner of the picture. For the cluster, stamp two flowers per size of the tattered floral set. Shape your individual dies and layer them to make a full flower. Die cut a few leaves from the Western Broncos Die and the Rose Creations Shapeabilities. Stamp the corresponding leaves. Adhere flowers and leaves to the layout as shown. Stamp and die cut a few posies and add to layout. For the centers, add dew drops to the smaller flowers. For the larger ones, follow this simple TUTORIAL to make the centers. Finally, add blue rhinestones to the pictures as shown.
