February of last year
I made a layout featuring the Penmaker, intending to frame and hang it in my craft room. Well, that never happened. While I was cleaning out our secretary, I found it in the top drawer. Ahhhh... good intentions! Now was the time to fulfill that dream, but I'm not liking it so much... needs a bit of tweaking! This is what I did...
I would have preferred
to take that bottom layer off and apply some gesso and mists, but it was stuck tight.
I made a couple of
rosettes using the Alterations Mini Paper Rosettes die and that same paper I had on the original layout... (wow, had to be the Lord blessing me because what are the chances of that happening)! I added some blue buttons to tie in the colors of the photo, Authentique Diction that I doodled around and Authentique Petite Type Squares of his initials. The "Wonderful" banner is from the MME Kraft Funday Decorative Brads assortment. Also tucked in a couple scraps of Glitz French Kiss.
I stamped a Verve sentiment
on the Graphic 45 Staples ticket, but didn't get a clean stamp... probably due to the layering underneath. Attached some My Mind's Eye brads and a K & Company metal word.
Another Verve sentiment
and MME brad along with jute from my stash.
What do you think?
Do you like this redo or should I have left it in the drawer?
Thanks for stopping by today!
