Happy Hump day CE friends! Nicolle here sharing a layout today. I created a layout around a picture that was taken by me. My mother in law had a special request and wanted a picture with the “grandma’s” and “grandkids”. So it’s my 4 brats 😉 , my mom and mother in law. It really is a cute picture.
I started by using one of new stamps that I have yet to add to the store. UGH, I have been so busy but I really have to get it in the store. It’s a distressed checkerboard design. It nothing original but I see it’s sort of trendy. I also used out distressed grid stamp. I applied black soot and brushed corduroy Tim Holtz distress stains and then stamped the images on the page. I applied brushed corduroy for the base color on the flourish and then applied some tarnished brass distress stain here and there.
For the mini steampunk clock I applied tarnished brass stain. I then added a little brushed corduroy stain around the edges. I finished by applying some black stazon ink to a crackle stamp and stamped the image. It’s a bit light … I need to re-ink my pad. I layered a metal flower and then added a mini gear and the clock hands. I simply altered them using black soot stain. I made a few gears under to the clock.
Lastly I added some trendy triangles on the page.
