Happy Friday Folks! Nicolle here today sharing a layout I created of my daughter Jolie and I. She’s my youngest and just growing up to fast. sniffle sniffle… pretty soon an empty nest….nahh..;)


I altered the large clock face using brushed corduroy stain, tarnished brass and black soot ink. The mini gear clock I applied black soot and then peacock liquid pearls. Wing set 4 was altered using the peacock pearls and a little black ink.  The many gears were altered first with a base of coat of black soot and then a bit of tarnished brash distress paints. Some were left in solid black or tarnished brass. The wood veneer clocks were again altered using black soot and peacock liquid pearls to keep with the color scheme.

IMG_8125 For added interest and flow I added a bunch of tiny clock hands throughout the page. They were simply altered with black soot paint. The hot air balloons were altered with black soot paint and peacock liquid pearls. The bird chipboard piece was altered with black soot paint. I find using tim holtz dabbers east and convenient or little pieces.
