A Captured Moment

I love the Kaisercraft Documented collection.
This photo is of my dad’s car (Model T Ford 1922) which is finally running, although there is still a lot of restoring to be done!

Applied the Dusty Attic chicken wire stencil, using Nuvo Mousses and coffee stencil using Art Extravagance – Graphite texture Paste from Prima. 

Let dry and added coffee (Plain coffee) to create the back ground. 

To give the cogs a rusted effect, I applied Art Extravagance - Rust Paste Brown Red and Yellow, as well as on the Roman numerals. 

Completed the lay out with black netting, 
Tim Holtz clock hands, cogs, screw brads 

and printable clocks, as well as black metal ones. 

Products used: 

 chicken wire stencil, 
Tim Holtz gears; 
Netting and clock embellishments. 

Have an awesome scrappy day!


Remember This…

Hello there,

February month is that lovely grungy mood board and 
when I found an old photo of my hubby at work (many a moon ago) was just perfect.

Just to let you in on a secret of mine... 
I always apply my page to board (12x12) with a gel medium.

 Applied the Dusty Attic chicken wire stencil, using Art Extravagance – Graphite texture Paste from Prima. Let dry and to give the rusted oil effect, I applied Art Extravagance - Rust Paste Brown,  Red and yellow, to create the back ground. 

As well as on the title!

and the cog chippies.

 Completed the lay out with Hessian and denim cut cogs, as well as screw brads.

Products used:

Tim Holtz gears, 
chicken wire and ribbon 

Thanks for popping by!

Happy scrapping

Hellooooo my friendly Scrappers!
I am busy working on My Dusty Attic Feb mood board, 
so in the mean time here's a layout I did for Penelope Dee.
The New Victoria Collection from Penelope Dee, I decided to do a vintage page.

Using Organic and Unique pages, 
I stencil the Abloom/Lattice Lace, then to add colour Nuvo mousse gold 
and plain coffee, as well as the Organic Love stamp with Pumice Stone, to create the back ground. 

For the doily I painted with coffee. 
The Leaf circle chippies (by Kiriche) dusted with Pumice Stone distress ink. 

On the butterflies and the word, I embossed with Liquid Platinum 
and dusted with Chestnut brown chalk. 

Then sanded the edges of my photo then used Chestnut brown chalk.

Completed the lay out with Prima (Wild & Free) Flowers, dried coloured Leaves, ribbon and stone hearts embellishments.
Also used flower sequins from Dusty Attic.

Hope that I have inspired you!

Me, Myself and I

Hi all,

Me, Myself and I
This represents me and more than likely most of us 
 It's about how busy our minds are when we are meant to be sleeping 
but just have far too many ideas running through our heads!

I found this pottery bust with wings at a craft market!
it is meant for a pot plant, 
but clearly that is not what my mind was telling me!!!

I painted, added lace gold foiled on top and bronze foiled the bust!

I painted the face by mixing up brushed bronze and mother of pearl.

Using oasis in the head, I was able to add flowers, words, feathers, light bulbs, clock and butterflies!

Using hot glue I attached all other Prime flowers!

I loved every minute of this off the page project!
