Boy's of the harvest...

DT member Loes shares two projects today for her first post as a DT member! We hope you enjoy her unique style as well as the heart and soul she puts into all of her work!

When I first saw the papers from the "Genuine" collection, I knew exactly which photos I wanted to use! Sometimes it happens instantly and when you see the papers you know exactly which photos you want to use. I know Authentique has mentioned they hope you will never have to stage a photo to use their products, and it is so true for me and the Genuine collection! 

Above and below are a couple of photos I took last summer during the grain harvest here in Holland. The color of our boys in their blue jeans, covered in dust from the grain, the smell of the harvest, etc. - these feelings from the harvest "are" this collection for me...

With how busy my boys are, they always make time for me to take some photos, which I love! {Of course I have more photos but I'm saving some of them to use in a mini album...}

Flowers and boys don't usually mix well for me, but this time I punched the flowers from jeans and canvas and made a centerpiece with a gear.

{Tip: By using foam tape you get much more depth in a layout}

Also, I re-styled a wine bottle by giving it a new label. To me, it is so much nicer to give away a bottle of wine with a personal message or accent added!

For this project, I have used the "Loyal" Collection, however, only papers with blue tones.

Thank you for stopping by the Authentique blog today. Enjoy using our papers and please remember show us your projects on Facebook, we love to see what you create!

  1. Dat ziet er erg leuk uit Loes,geweldig papier hoor!
    Ik ben sinds kort ook helemaal fan van dit merk,maar begrijp ik goed dat wij uit Nederland niet mee kunnen doen aan de Challenge? Althans wel meedoen,maar niet winnen,Ha Ha

    Ik ben volger geworden van het Autenthique blog,dus kan flink wat inspiratie opdoen.
    De papierlijnen Loyal en Gathering zijn naar mij onderweg,Genuien heb ik al in huis,dus kom maar op :-)

    Groetjes Anita

    1. klopt helemaal anita maar meedoen kan altijd!

      thank you!

    2. Precies,meedoen kan altijd :-)

  2. Lovely work! I too am not a flower-on-a-boy-layout kind of girl but these converted me in 3 seconds flat! Love the denim with the line. Great photos too. I am looking forward to that mini, now!

  3. Heel mooi gedaan, vooral die oogstfoto's met de jeanskleur. Schitterend!
    De wijnfles is ook een stuk opgeknapt, al denk ik dat fanatieke wijndrinkers graag het originele etiket zien. Maar het is zo een perfect mannen-kado.

  4. GREAT JOB Loes. I loved your tekst it was perfect.
