Hi again on a
wet and rainy Friday in Ohio. Baby Adelaide is still napping, so I just MIGHT have time to write this. I'll give it a go anyway.
I worked in my new
photo album (I guess it's really more of a journal) last night, and created this spread. The photo is a copy of one when I was around two. My poor mom looks so tired here. I wonder if I was wearing her out.
The pages have a base of gesso.
I dabbed on some Broken China distress stain and blended in Faded Jeans distress ink using my sponge applicator. I did a little stamping with Archival jet black ink and Stampers Anonymous Stuff To Say and Boundless Flight. Added more Faded Jeans using Crafter's Workshop Confetti stencil. Sponged on lots of Walnut Stain distress around the edges. The checkerboard resist canvas is by Prima and is colored with the two blues previously used. The Vintage Doily die is by Sizzix and the Chit Chat sticker words are from Idea-ology.
The trims are from
my stash... old cotton lace, tiny rick rack and buttons.
Now from the Penmaker...
This beauty is made
from stabilized spalted maple that's been dyed green in the spalted sections. When the died is put into those sections, it stays within the spalted areas and doesn't seep out.
I would be happy to have a
comment from you if you have time. Hope you all have a wonderful, relaxing weekend.
Thanks for stopping by!
