So, Saylor asked me why I am always doing layouts of Lizzie (aka Elizabeth) 🙂 So this one is for you Saylor! See the versatility of this amazing kit…be sure and get over and check out this uniquely different monthly scrapbooking kit club…at www.scrapsofdarkness.com !
This is my little man at just about 18 months…..he has ALWAYS been a tall kid for his age…what could I expect…He was 10 lbs 10 oz AND 10 days early…MY PERFECT TEN! He is now 6 yo…about to start the 1st grade…and looks like a 3rd grader!
The gears used here are from Dusty Attic….I used a lot of Tim Holtz distress Ink, the chalk ink that came in this month’s kit at www.scrapsofdarkness.com , which was the perfect green, Tim Holtz distress crackle paint in a green color … went over it again with some darker Tim Hotz distress ink, and voila! I personally think that the key looks like rusted metal….check out the up-close photo and decide for yourself. I got the Dusty Attic chipboard gear piece through www.scrapsofdarkness.com ! LOVE their stuff!
Here are some up-close photos:
I used some hemp rope that I got at Walmart to make the circles…love the texture!
The key with the gears is from ScrapFX and was also purchased through the “shoppe” over at www.scrapsofdarkness.com . I used the same painting and inking technique as mentioned above. The alphas are from The Girls Paperie…Halloween edition.
Look at the inking/paint technique….love love love it!!!! Doesn’t it look like rusted metal?!
Above is the “crackle” finish of the Tim Holtz distress crackle paints! You ROCK Mr. Holtz! 🙂
The alpha letters of “Apples” were from a previous kit at www.scrapsofdarkness.com and are from the rockin’ Tim Holtz! 🙂
TFL my friends! at least I hope you can see this….because I am hoping my blog troubles are behind me! 🙂 HAVE A GREAT WEEK!!!!
