Hey friends! I’m so excited to share this layout with you! The Felicity Jane kits are filled with fun soft colors, but they actually have tons of elements that are perfect for a more masculine color palette! I’m one of those people that uses pink, purple, and every other traditionally feminine color to document my favorite guys in my life, but every now and then I love switching things up and going for the deep blues, greens, yellows, and more bold or masculine patterns.
For this layout I stuck with one of my favorite layout styles - 8.5x11 with two photos in the bottom right corner. I started out by using matching watercolors to create a background where my photos would be placed. I made sure it would be peeking out from behind my photos, but wouldn’t be across the entire page.
Then I layered different patterned and solid papers behind my photos to make them pop!
I used a simple and neutral alpha for my title, and because this layout is about my favorite guy, I kept the title as simple as that - “My Guy.” With the color of the background, and the color from the layered papers, I felt like the clean alphas I chose really stood out and weren’t overwhelming.
I fussy cut the “Who, What, When, Where” rectangles from an FJ journal card and used them for part of my journaling.The rest of my journaling is short and sweet, and is above one of the photos. As always, I added embellishment clusters around the layout in places that felt like they needed a little something extra.
For embellishments, I went with neutral colors and wood veneer. I love the way the wood veneer stars pop against the colorful background and amongst the other neutral embellishments!
Instead of finishing my layout off with my usual gold craft mist, I used a navy craft mist and really like the way it ties the entire layout together.
I’m so happy with the way this layout turned out! The versatility of the FJ kits makes it so easy to document all of your favorite people and use all of your favorite colors!
I hope this gave you inspiration for future layouts! Don’t forget to tag your FJ projects on Instagram with the hashtag #FelicityJane so we can all see them!
