My turn again - this time with the brand new and really awesome Kaisercraft Time Machine Collection and ''Lunch with Grampy''. How utterly cute is my step-grandson? We love him to bits.
I've had the background for this layout prepared for ages, a piece 12''x12'' sheet of chipboard, covered with sticky backed canvass then randomly painted with Distress Paints - Picket Fence, Antique Linen and Bundled Sage.
Then some Texture Paste applied through a brick template using my special ''my2angels'' applicator. When the texture paste is dry put the template back over it and colour just the raised areas with a light dab of Distress Ink using the Ink Blending Tool. I've used Frayed Burlap, a tiny bit of Aged Mahogony and Brushed Corduroy.
Then when the ink was perfectly dry I stamped over the top of the bricks with Stazon Jet Black ink. The Kaisercraft Graffiti stamp is perfect on a brick wall.
So that was when I just stopped. No more inspiration....got on with other jobs, made some ATC's, finished a completely different layout....basically just left it all on the side of my desk.
Then Tracy went to Kaisercraft in Melbourne and got me a present - the new Time Machine Collection! Hooray! Inspired again and ready for this layout!
The next layer is made up of many different small pieces of paper and a few scraps of tape. First some torn strips of ''Steam Engine'' then two journalling pieces - one from ''Scriptorian'' and one from ''Gadget''. I cut the piece from ''Gadget'' into two - the first is at the top (Make this moment count) and the fussy cut clock and gear are on the far left hand side. There's a long green ribbon running underneath that's from the 12x12 Sticker Sheet and the two pennants are cut from the reverse of ''Scriptorian'' and the reverse of ''Cogler''.
My green Eucalyptus leaves are die cut from ''Cogler as well - a lovely light minty green. Love these Ultimate Crafts Australian dies too - so good to be able to have leaves (and animals etc.) that are actually growing where your photo is taken! A looped piece of twine at the top is attached to a Knife and Fork Charm. Originally silver, I coloured it with Inka Gold and a bit of Black Soot Distress Ink.
Arranged along the bottom of the photos are some chipboard, wooden and metal Gadget Gear Cog Charms. The chipboard is heat embossed using Aged Mahogony Distress Embossing Powder which gives it a rough texture. The centres of the cogs are Cream Pearls and a perfect little Plate with Cutlery Charm.
You can get a couple of charms to suit EVERY occasion at my2angels!!!
Grab yourself some Kaisercraft Time Machine...it's full of all those gorgeous chocolate, caramel and mint colours that make you crave dessert!!
