|My son, Colin, in 2007
For this layout, I used Maja Design paper from their Enjoying Outdoors collection
I did some stencilling on the background with Faber-Castell whipped spackle.

Tile Mania (6x6)
These are the dies I used:
These are the chipboard pieces I used:
For the Geometric Border and Charleston Corner, I tried various things inlcuding embossing them with Distress Embossing Powder but didn't like the way they looked so I painted over them with white paint. I then rubbed Seedless Preserves and Dusty Concord Distress Inks on them and misted them with water. After that was dry I traced around the edges with a black marker to make them stand out more.
The Organic Vine was painted green and Ranger Crackle Accents was applied. I then rubbed brown ink over them to accentuate the cracks and wiped the excess off. I also rubbed a little white and purple paint on them with my fingertip and added a touch of black ink around some of the edges.
The flowers are by Petaloo and Prima and the berries are by Blue Fern Studios.
Thank you so much for taking a look!
