|My son, Evan, in 2000|
For this layout I used Maja Design paper from their Denim and Friends collection.
These are the punch and dies I used:
I did some machine stitching along the punched border and shaded around the edges and corners of the layout with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink using a Clarity stencil brush.
These are the chipboard pieces I used:
Mini Corner #1
I primed all the large chipboard pieces with clear gesso then applied Dreamweaver crackle paste.
I misted the Fancy Trim with Arctic Blue Glimmer Mist, rubbed a bit of white paint overtop, inked it with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and misted it with water.
I rubbed the Leafy Flourish and Elegant Swirl with the Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and misted them with water to make the ink spread out.
I painted the Mini Corners white, misted with Arctic Blue Glimmer Mist and inked around the edges in brown.
The teddy bear was made with a mold and Sculpey Ultra Light, then painted. I started with a light brown basecoat, applied a glaze made from dark brown paint and soft matte gel, wiping off the excess, then dry-brushed a pale yellow-brown on top. I used a fine tip brown marker to trace over the eyes and mouth.
Thank you so much for taking a look!
