Hi There, it's Anita here again and my post today is using up my last bits of Kaisercraft Provincial and also the other embellishments I had for April.
I had a lovely chipboard clock sent in my kit and I want to do something with it rather than just stick it onto one of the layouts.
So, I used some Metallic Gilding Wax in gold, and rubbed it in patches around the front of the clock face. I then chose a photo of my 2 girls that fitted nicely in the centre aperture of the clock and glued them in.
The flowers were originally a pale cream and so I used a shimmer mist spray to make them the colour I really wanted for this project. I also had a mix of cream lace pieces, so I popped a couple of lengths into a little bowl of water and squeezed some Distress Stain into it, stirred and let them soak for about half an hour. I only wanted a pale colour, but if you want a deeper colour you can add more ink or even dab directly onto the lace for more intensity.
I finished up by adding buttons, flat backed pearls, punched out leaves and a metal word plaque.
I am hanging this little project on the wall, but you could still easily add it to a layout if you wanted to.
I have also created another layout, Go Ape Together! I thought this was going to be a difficult paper to use due to the heavy hedge type background, however I found these photos from a family trip to Bedgebury Forest a couple of summers ago and thought they worked well.
chipboard letters in the same colour for the title.
Thickers for the title.
Thanks for looking xxx
