Finally sharing Wonder

Hi all. 

Hope you are all doing good and had a wonderful and creative weekend.

Just like the two posts from last week, I am again sharing a layout made summer 2011. "Wonder" were made before CHA summer last year as a sample for classes, but were never used as it. All this time its been "hidden" on my hard drive, and it's probably about time to share this one too with you.






The upper background paper is Prima's Printery col. - "Negative" where I stamped on with Prima's Brick Wall clear stamp which is a great connectable stamp that I love so much! Again I used our Chalk Edgers "Black Coal" for the black ink on the stamp, which works so well on clear stamps.
On the center of the layout I added a strip of Pastiche paper, which is the same paper I found the beautiful paper butterfly and roses fussy cuts from. On the paper strip I added touches of Chalk Edgers "Dry Sand" for soft distressed touches. The striped bottom paper is Pixie Glen Col. "Garden Gate" and the name on that paper works pretty well for this layout I think ;O) On the bottom edge of this striped paper I distressed with our Comfort-Craft Tools "Distressing Tool" to get the teared paper edges. The gate is made of Prima's great Felt Gates, and I added a Shabby Chic Resin Treasures "Roman Pillars" on each side of it. On the top of the gate I added a fussy cut clock from Printery Col . - "Page Four".


And here are some close-ups;



The victorian chair is a chipboard piece from Printery Col., which is the same pack of chipboard pieces as the "Wonder" title. The white resin window is Shabby Chic Resin Treasures "Old Church Window". On the Pixie Glen paper I found these beautiful small birds that I cut out with our Comfort-Craft Tools "Craft Knife" and glued down on this window.


Here you can see the details around the felt gate, as the butterfly, detailed fussy cuts, the stamped background etc. You can also see that the felt gate is "white washed", as it originally is pure dark brown felt, but here more soft with touches of white. All I do to get this look is to ass thin layers of white acrylic paint on to the felt, randomly, and just small amounts of paint, usually with an pretty dry brush or piece of foam. All together the felt gate with the Roman Pillars works as a frame around the cut out photo of my daughter.


Here you can see some Shabby Chic Metal Treasures "Bird Cages" hanging down together with Prima's cling stamp "Londonerry". I like to combine embellishments with matching stamped designs to create a dimensional look.
Small beautiful Prima roses "Printery" and a large Prima flower "Meredith", and also some beautiful grey Gillian "Cinder".

Here are some images of the Shabby chic Resin Treasures used on this layout;
"Old Church Window".

"Roman Pillars".

Thank you so much for your time, truly appreciate your visit.

Take care all! ;O)
