Here is a rundown of the tips for using flowers on a boy page so far;
1) Adding flowers any time there is a girl in the picture(s).
2) Messy flowers – if you use messy flowers, by messy I mean wrinkled, scuffed up, etc., they still look manly enough.
3) Use of gender neutral, or masculine, colors can make any flower appropriate for a boys page.
Here is tip 4:
Create an elegant page so a flower will fit more appropriately into the design.
The actual picture used in this layout is not one that is an elegant image, however, I think the picture and the layout design work well together. I wanted to convey through design the fact that I think my son is so unique, and if you know my son, you know this picture is a perfect example of who he can be. Most of the time he is a very easy going boy. Other times he is crazy and sassy and fun!
