|My paternal grandfather's cousins (Olive and Camille) with a friend
For the background of this layout I used a digital paper that I printed up on a large format printer.
|Charm of the Good Old Days - pp1a
I ripped and distressed the edges of the paper and inked them with Library Green Archival Ink. I layered this over a piece of burlap and a piece of black paper. The edges of the black paper were coloured slightly by rubbing them with Patina Gilders Paste Wax and Library Green Archival Ink.
The background was stencilled lightly with Jet Black Archival Ink using a Clarity stencil brush. I then went over the stencilled areas adding hints of colour with a marker.
I also did some stamping on the background using brown ink.
These are the dies I used:
The pale yellow flowers were made with the Tattered Floral dies. I used the 3D Floral Basics shaping mold by Heartfelt Creations to help shape the flower layers. The centers for these two flowers were made by layering the Miniature Velvet Daisies die-cuts and gluing some microbeads in the middle.
I made the leaves using the Heartfelt Creations coordinating Leafy Accents die, stamp and 3D Shaping Mold.
This is the chipboard set I used:
|Decorative Flourish Set
I painted the Flourish pieces dark brown and used a palette knife to apply crackle paste mixed with some green paint overtop (cleaning up the edges with a needle). After that was dry, I rubbed a liberal amount of Patina Gilders Paste Wax overtop and then lightly added some Vintage Gold Metallique wax by Prima. Then I glued on some Spruce Willis Prills.
Thanks so much for taking a look!
