I have broken a personal record! This is my seventh and final layout for the month of May and will be entered into the NSD challenges on the last day!
This layout was made using Blue Fern Studios Eclectic Charm paper collection as well as a few pieces of the ephemera that goes with the collection. I wanted to use several layers under the photo of my son, Sam, on the day he was ordained to the office of Deacon in our little church.
I used Finnabair's Iris Tapestry and white crackle texture paste first and when it dried I went over it with Tim Holtz Distress Collage Medium in Vintage to tone down the white.
The music paper is Paper Studio's Textured Cream Sheet Music. The piece with the diecut frame was leftover from another project and I didn't throw the scrap away. I inked around the inner edges with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain. The picture and frame diecut are inked with VersaMagic Night Sky. Before attaching the picture to the layout I used TH's splatter brush and applied Prima Art Alchemy Ginger Magic all over the layout.
The cheesecloth was sprayed with all three Tim Holtz Distress Mica Sprays.
Copper colored round clips and charms are from my stash. The clock charm I believe was from either Amazon or Aliexpress.
Date stickers are Spare Parts from HL. Alphabet clear stamps I used for the title is Timeless from Stampabilities.
Special thanks to Sam for the Spellbinders die set that I cut the frame out and Marci B. for the "Documented" stamp set! Also thanks to Carri (Caletts) for the dark blue baker's twine. I'm pretty sure it came from her! :-)
Butterfly from Reneabouquets was toned down using TH Walnut Stain.
I love how this turned out and I sure appreciate all of you that visit my gallery, vote and express your support. Thank you so much!
