Masculine designs aren't always easy to come by for crafty projects, so when I discovered the Tim Holtz gears die I had an a-ha! moment. It gave this album a definite masculine feel, perfect as a home for photos from Ray's various shoots - hence the title Dream Factory.
The book is an envelope based album so it has large tags in the pockets, plenty of minis and smaller tags inside for yet more pics or journaling.
I used the.Papermania Chronology Paper line ....a real favourite......as well as die-cuts using the gears die and some grungeboard embellishments.
I used the Chronology Gears embossing folder on some of the tags, on others I lightly applied peel-off stickers, inked and misted over the top and then removed the sticker....that's how I created the pattern on the clocks tag in the photo above.
So that's the proof, I don't always make a girly album....I admit most of the time I do...but not always and those gears dies and folders will definitely make a repeat appearance.
