Valuable heirlooms- Scrapbooking Top 50 Australia- May DT Inspiration

Wonderful memories of childhood and family are valuable heirlooms. I found some old slides years ago and eventually I have got around to scrapbooking some of my Pop and Dad with a very young me.

Items used include:
  • White card stock 12"x 12".
  • White modeling paste- Monte Marte
  • Assorted paper from 6 1/2" x 6 1/2" Kaisercraft paper pad 'Curiosity'... torn into strips.
  • Tim Holtz dylusion sprays- 'Tangerine Dream', 'Dirty Martini',' London Blue' and ' Crushed grape'
  • Resin flower - Resin Rainbow
  • Prima flowers
  • Memory Maze Chipboard ' Clocks and Clogs'
  • Brass embellishments including key and lacework shapes.
  • Glass butterfly embellishment.
  • 'Public Library' designer brads.
  • Prima Wire thread- black
  • Mica Colour 'Vintage'- metallic pigment watercolour paint. (Clock and hands)
  • White gesso to prime clock and hands before painting.
  • Black sharpie pen for border.
  • Bella Krafty Goodness Paperz 'Chatterbox' - words 
  • Water spray bottle (small) 
  • Black cotton

  • I first gave the paper a light spray of water in the area in which I was going to spray my colour.
  • Using the spray bottle in one hand and the dylusions 'Dirty Martini' in the other I sprayed toward the edge with both at the same time. 
  • Then repeated the process with the 'Tangerine Dream' and water. 
  • Taking the sprayer out of the bottles I used the tube to flick colour around, repeating with all the colours I previously mentioned.
  • I also added some white gesso thickly around the area where the photos will be placed.
  • Paint with gesso and allow to dry
  • Paint with Brass Mica color and then add some teal before it's totally dry so they will blend.
To complete the page I added layers of torn stripes of paper, Black cotton, twisted wire and then backed the photos with several papers before adding the flowers and additional embellishments.
