Greetings my scrappy friends, Kathleen White here with a sweet love story of a layout. I can’t believe I am sitting here writing this new post while listening to Christmas music! It makes me happy and this layout makes me happy so I hope this post will put a smile on your face today.
My daughter is busy working on her physician’s assistant degree and moments shared with her hubby are few and far between. For this layout I selected this charming “antique clock” which I applied several coats of white gesso. Here are a couple of close up views of this clock.
For the background I used a flourish stencil and applied my homemade masking paste then painted it with these gorgeous blue and orange paints. I flicked the blue, orange and white paints around for added interest. Then I sprinkled some clear crystal dots and peach colored pearls around the page. Peaking out around the photo I added black thread to lighted the mood.
Steampunk is all the rage and for good reason. Creative Embellishments added these fabulous ” Pipe Work set” that I simply couldn’t resist. They are so perfect for pouring love out into this sweet jars. Once again, I did a very simple gesso application then touched my paint brush with blue on it.
Til next time, may your creativity take flight.
