Fancy Pants Papa

So Wendy sent me this little lot to play with...

And this is the layout I created...

And here is how I put it together...

First I cut the white cardstock to 8 1/2" x 11".
I took the Adventurer sheet and cut it smaller than the base cardstock- approximately 9 1/2"x7". Ink all around the edge.

Next I cut 3 of the cards from the Papa Card Set sheet. I inked these around the edges.
Next I sanded around the edges of the photo, and lightly inked the very edge.
I took two of the cards, and arranged them fanlike with the photo.
The patterned sheet of paper was adhered to the white card base. then the ribbon stuck across, and the third card stuck just underneath.
Then I added the photo and cards on top.

Next I made the clock embellishment.
I drew round a Technique Tuesday circle Tile on the reverse of the Adventurer paper, then stuck it to the tile.
I inked the edge, then stuck on a Heidi Swapp ghost star. I stuck it on using narrow double sided tape, in the position where the hands were to be stuck, this way the tape would not be seen.
I then stuck the black clock hands over the top, and finished with a sticky gem on top, and some doodled dots all around the inner edge.

Using a large circle punch I cut 3 circles from the reverse of the Card Set paper, added to re-enforce the circle shape theme.

For the title I used American Crafts Thickers- Prancer White, but as I had run out of the letter E, I used upside down number 3s instead! I very slightly ran my cats eye inkpad over the top to distress the letters slightly.

The journalling was written on to thin strips, and stuck down with foam pads.
To finish I added the clock embellishment, and some more of the Ghost stars, fixed on with small black bards.
And there you go, one layout.
