Fun Friday with Pam

Mini Chip board book
 This is a Kaisercraft chipboard album
The front cover is just a simple emboss with TH embossing dauber and  Verdigris  Enamel powder. The dauber worked well to echo the birds feathers. Then I filled in with distress inks.
The papers are from Bo Bunny Garden Journal. I fussy cut feathers and alternated with flowers from the stash. I also added some fantasy film behind the hummingbird and a piece of tulle before I covered with the feathers and flowers.
This was okay, but needed a bit of weight to balance the bottom.
Wall papered with stencil done with emboss and gesso.
I didn't like it so much so covered it in with the flowers.
Back cover pictured on left was just filled in with some inks and left.
Final additions are always the photos and a few buttons and ribbons. This was the year of the 'Weddings' We attended 3 in the space of two months.
Thanks Pinterest, because Wedding Season will soon be here!

Wild Whisper Kit Blitz 4 with Marcia

Hi Guys my summer of 1997 returns with our trip to the Hoodoos. I wanted to have a cool background like the hoodoos so I created my own.
  I took a piece of tissue paper and sprayed it with various TH sprays including Ground Espresso, Spiced Marmalade, the metallics and a few others.
 I also added ribbon for another texture that I inked with TH Tea Dye, Worn Lipstick and Blue Jean. I also scrunched everything up before gluing it down.
 I made my own Hoodoos by ripping up a light brown piece of card stock. These were then inked with TM Walnut, Vintage Photo and Lemonade. I added blue photo mats and orange titles and arrows to make things pop. Also added the ribbon from the kit around the 2 people in my picture to draw them closer and a navigational brad. I also used brown Dew Drops for more depth and something shiny.

 I did this as a double layout. Everything is pretty much the exact same. My title I layered so it stands out. This photo is by itself as my grandma reminded me of her memories and I want to add the story. As kids of 16, 13 and 11 we dared grandma (who at the time was in her 50's) to go down the 600 foot slope and back up. Well she did and quite quickly too much to our shock! It was a good day that is for sure!

Kit Blitz 3 Wild Whisper with Marcia

Hi guys. I am still stuck in the past. It has been great working on these old photos. It has brought back many memories and started conversations. My grandma even shared a story I had forgotten (more about that on another layout). This layout is pretty simple because I wanted to get multiple photos on it.

I started with a blue card stock background this time. I have been trying to make my pages lighter so this time I cut out the centre, and I now have another piece to use for something else. I layer on a piece of patterned paper, and cut out another piece of card stock.

Next I got all my pieces ready to go.
 This piece I used for the date is the leftover piece from when I made the punch out for layout #1. I have a habit of keeping all my bits and finding somewhere to use them.

 The leaves from the kit needed a little extra, so they got stamped with a random pattern. I just picked up the closest stamp and down it went with TH Peeled Paint Ink.
 My tag is a leftover from another project. It had a number on 1 side but the other was blank, so I flipped it over, and again used TH Peeled Paint Ink.

Assembly happened last. I added my journaling to the tag. Some TH Arrows to the top corner and some pearls from the kit that I have used alcohol ink to change the colour. I have no title for this page but it will find a happy home in my album.

Thanks for joining me. See you soon!!!
