Kaisercraft - Barber Shoppe - Part 2

Hi Lynn here!  Back with my second layout created with the masculine Kaisercraft Barber Shoppe collection.  Following on with the theme of my dad's model plane hobby and another photo form the 1950's. I picked a photo of Dad flying a model plane at Epsom Downs. 

I started with a sheet of black Bazzill Basics cardstock, I used bands of papers from the collection (Beard, Scissors and Comb), distressed with the Tim Holtz Paper Distresser. The edges were then inked with weathered wood Distress Ink before being stuck to my base. Two 12" strips from the sticker sheet were trimmed and placed between the bands (a wooden ruler and a film strip with plane images). A further band was made with some kraft corrugated cardstock.

My photo was trimmed and distressed and mounted on a piece of burlap.

I cut letters for my title with a Sizzix Bigz die - Word Play, dry brushed with weathered wood and antique linen Distress Paints. These were completed with a sprinkling of Stampendous 
Frantage Embossing Enamel in shabby white. The tiny sticker letters and numbers were also from the sticker sheet. 

As before I made lots of cogs using
Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations Thinlits Die Set - Gearhead
. I covered these with a selection of embossing powders - silver, gold, black and copper.

Other embellishments were from the shop or my stash and the stickers were from the Barber Shoppe sticker sheet. 

Back soon to show you what I have made using a fun new line from Simple Stories.

Thanks for looking

I absolutely love this layout Lynn and in particular think the cogs are amazing! I don't use metallic embossing powders much but I really want to give it a try now.

Thanks Julie, I must admit I haven't used them for years, had to dig them out of my cupboard, but I was pleased to get the effect I was after. It's nice when you can use stuff you already have too. x
