Playing with Graphic 45

It was a bit spooky yesterday when I looked at Rinda's post and saw the wonderful altered blocks she'd made with Graphic 45  'Under the Boardwalk'.......because yesterday morning I'd decided to get that pad off my shelf and have a play with it.
I may have mentioned before that I love Graphic 45.......I love looking at the papers.....I think they're stand alone works of art......that could grace a wall......but actually using them I find much harder......but it was time to be doing something with these papers......and I thought maybe a series of 'fun' cards.
So here's the first one......with more to follow.
I think this would make a great 'male' card......I always find them difficult to make......whether the man himself would appreciate it as much....is another question!!!

I love it although I'm with you on the subject of whether a man would appreciate the art involved in your super card

Happy Thursday

Jacky this is so fun and a brilliant layout! Love the "chaps" in their swimming suits too!
I better start saving for a new freezer if that is the lifespan.

This is so fantastic and fab papers. I have just done my first ever journal pages and it was so different from cards-loved the freedom. Great job and love the vintage image

This is great, I love the blue, the stamps and postcard, the hunky men in sexy swimwear ;)

Love this & the one below Jacky - so very 'artistic', a look I would love to be able to emulate! Have a great weekend :) xxx

I, too, find Graphic 45 hard to work with although I can't part with the papers I have. This is a perfect use of them!

I take the easy way out and buy male cards, but this ... Well it's fabulous.

I was going to say "great minds think alike" and I see Rinda already beat me too it. I rest my case. :o)

Love the card, and the graphic of the guys in their swimsuits is great!
