Christmas gifts on budget: A Masculine Jeans-Dori

Lately, I 've been asked by a friend of mine two faux-Midoris, one inspired by my MixedMedia Midori, one for a guy...I panicked of course, I don't do masculine art projects: I like frills, lace, pink and baroque, so the only way out it seemed to me, was to make a Midori with just black upcycled jeans and kraft paper for inserts. But then I got an idea and I really like how it turned out at the end:
Qualche giorno fa mi sono state chieste due Midori, una per lei, ispirata dalla mia MixedMedia Midori, e una per lui...panico, non faccio cose mascoline, mi piacciono il rosa, i pizzi e lo stile barocco, quindi all'inizio ho pensato di farla solo con del jeans nero di riciclo e della carta kraft per gli inserti. Ma poi mi è venuta un'idea e sono molto contenta del risultato finale:
To make the front panel I embossed a piece of black cardstock with an embossing folder:
Per fare il fronte ho embossato del cartoncino nero con un embossing folder:
And then I dry brushed with turquoise acrylic paint to highlight the texture:
E poi ho evidenziato la texture con del colore acrilico turchese ed il pennello con pochissimo colore:

So, this is my last post for this year, I wish you a Happy Festive Season and we'll see in 2018!!
Questo è l'ultimo post dell'anno,auguro a tutti Buone Feste e ci vediamo nel 2018!!

Great gift idea for a man - I find it much harder to create masculine projects. Best wishes for Christmas and the New Year!
