Climbing

My son, Colin, in 2007




For this layout, I used Maja Design paper from their Enjoying Outdoors collection

I did some stencilling on the background with Faber-Castell whipped spackle.


The Crafter's Workshop
Tile Mania (6x6)






These are the dies I used:


Spellbinders
Romantic Rectangles Two
Spellbinders
Grand Decorative Circles




These are the chipboard pieces I used:


Dusty Attic
Geometric Border

Blue Fern Studios
Charleston Corners
Blue Fern Studios
Organic Vine



For the Geometric Border and Charleston Corner, I tried various things inlcuding embossing them with Distress Embossing Powder but didn't like the way they looked so I painted over them with white paint.  I then rubbed Seedless Preserves and Dusty Concord Distress Inks on them and misted them with water.  After that was dry I traced around the edges with a black marker to make them stand out more.









The Organic Vine was painted green and Ranger Crackle Accents was applied.  I then rubbed brown ink over them to accentuate the cracks and wiped the excess off.  I also rubbed a little white and purple paint on them with my fingertip and added a touch of black ink around some of the edges.






The flowers are by Petaloo and Prima and the berries are by Blue Fern Studios.







Thank you so much for taking a look!

  1. Well you know I'm a purpleholic Tracy and this layout really caught my eyes! I love how you placed the circle die to match the climbing bars Colin is on! The stenciling & eyelets are a very nice touch too! So innovative!
