It's a guy thing...Creative Memories with Sketches in Thyme #332

I do hope my regular readers are not getting bored with my continuous post of wedding layouts.  This one...well, I must say I am in love with it.  I had so much fun creating this using the great sketch.  I began with the mat which was just lying next to the picture...a perfect fit.  I decided to continue with the black, white and shades of grey and silver.  A perfect combo for this masculine layout with a black and white photo.

Here is the sketch from Sketch in Thyme:

At first I thought the clusters were going to be difficult, but in the end I had to stop myself.  Clusters are so much fun.  I started with the Jolee's tuxedo embellishments.  I didn't want to add too many flowers but I did find some black and grey which worked great with my monochromatic scheme.  Not sure if you notice the gear behind the black flower?  It is metallic silver and hard to see in the photo.

The shoes are Creative Memories stickers.  I tucked lots of grey bling around and dotted with Spectrum Noir metallic pens around all the edges.

This is the first opportunity I have had to use these Tim Holtz plastic letters that I purchased on discount at Tuesday Morning.  Very masculine indeed.
