Remembering The Adventure

In May, the Penmaker
and I ventured to Virginia to attend the Mid-Atlantic Penturners Gathering in Richmond. It turned out to be quite the event, a real adventure for us... 

and inspired me to create this layout for my husband...

You probably recognize
the Prima Engraver collection here, but if you zoom in, you'll see a sheet from the Printery as well, used as my base. Under it is a 12x12 piece of black chipboard for stability. I distressed all the edges and sponged on Walnut Stain Distress Ink.

After putting on the
base papers, I  laid down molding paste... tinted with raw umber acrylic paint... using the Prima Sunrise Sunset checkerboard mask. I pulled out Tattered Leather Glimmer Mist and sprayed on a layer with the Crafters Workshop Numerals stencil.

I fussy cut several
 elements from the collection. Here I topped the clock with an Idea-ology gear, a Prima Junkyard Finding and wound around some May Arts natural burlap string. A Prima wood border piece is tucked underneath. 

More fussy cut pieces,
an arrow sticker from the collection sheet, and Idea-ology's hinge clip, chain and a muse token.

Idea-ology pen nibs.

An Engraver brad
as a flower center, Idea-ology Chit Chat sticker words and Martha Stewart punched oak leaves. I dry brushed some of the flowers (Engraver) and papers with gesso for a shabbier look.

I made the tab using
my We R Memory Keepers Cloud/Scallop Corner Chomper. The alphas are Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type.

In this grouping of
flowers, is one of the Engraver wood buttons, tied with burlap string and sitting inside one of our son's bottle caps from his soda he saves for me. There is also an Idea-ology memo pin and a Prima Say It In Crystals black gem used as a flower center.
