Perfect Layouts for the Male's in your life - big and little

Today I have some Male layouts to share. There are always lots of beautiful layouts for girls or Ladies but not a lot of Male ones. So today I thought I would share some layouts from the Design Team especialy for males, whether it is for the little men or the bigger men in your life, the girls have it covered.
First up is one from Carole and she has done a lovely layout with lots of elements on her page.

She must have spent quite a while doing some fussy cutting, just look at all the bits and pieces on her page. Carole has used one of our titles which she has inked black.

IDP0023 You and Me

She has used some glitter on her title as well to give it a bit of a shimmer and help make it stand out from the page. I just love Carole's work, it is always perfect with lots of detail. This page would work for a female as well as for a male.

Next up is another amazing layout from Larissa, again he has done another layout with lots of elements. Larissa always does the most detailed projects. She has even done some hand stitching on her layout using paint or a pen.

So many pieces on this layout. It must have taken Larissa quite a while to put it all together. I love the way it has all come together.

Larissa used one of our titles which she removed one of the words from. Larrisa has used crackle paint on her chipboard.

Larrisa has built up different pieces of her layout with foam tape. Larissa used papers from Webster

Last up is an other perfect layout from Sandie, again it is a great male page. This one is quite a grungy layout with lots of inks and paints, I love the title she has choosen, it is one of my favorite ones.
  Don't you love the look Sandie has managed to get on her chipboard. I love all the bits and pieces she has added to her page including feathers.

IDB0007 Circle Borders

Here is what she had to say about her layout.
"Masculine creations are something I normally stay well and truly away from, but I’m pleased with my how this layout turned out. I wanted my chipboard pieces to look down right dirty and grungy. Let’s face it, the guys in the photographs drive massive road-trains, so pink was certainly out. To get the chipboard elements to look grungy and dirty, I kept applying various mediums in dabs, dollops and splatters. If I had to reproduce this, I’d have no idea ‘how’, as there are a lot of layers. This was seriously a lot of fun, and I’m looking forwards to doing ‘more masculine’ layouts...
