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.


Happy Thanksgiving day 008

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.

Happy Halloween
