How are you today? Hopefully haveing a great Fri-yay! Today I'm sharing a layout I made for A Flair for Buttons. As my last project for this Etsy store was a colorful one, I went the complete opposite with this one and used quite a monochromatic palette of browns here. They also felt as the right choice for the topic.
In the photo there's my older daughter and my husband building a miniature ship. The story actually starts with the summer vacation trip to Tallinn, the topic of the previous page for A Flair for Buttons as well. We visited a maritime museum while in there and my daughter completely fell in love with the model ships. As my father once was a model builder and I can self remember gluing down teeny tiny windows of the cruiser models, this struck a chord in me. So when we got back home, the whole family went to shop for a model. My daughter got to choose it and she chose a Viking vessel. Being a Nordic person, it was a fun twist as well.
I tried to capture the atmosphere of the days passed and the sea fare to my page. The tones are of old paper and leather and I definitely wanted to use that sea chart print in my layout. While the papers and tones represent the past, I went with a modern look with the flairs. They still echo the same color scheme, but the designs are a bit more modern. The chevron is from the Linen Chevron set and the camera from the Honey Honey 2 one. The woodgrain "fun" is from the Paper Airplanes 2 set. I just love to mix and match!
Thank you for your visit today!
