Love Dad's Truck

Joanne of Embellish It gave me some Prima Engraver Collection to have a play with for display.  I have only had time to get one done so far and here it is.  I had a dabble with mixed media by using the circle and template added with moulding paste and then rubbing in liquid pearls with my finger once dried.  Think I was trying to create a tyre effect.  A new template and liquid pearls were used for the right hand lines.
 Note the washi tape top and bottom.  The Dusty Attic cogs below are finished in Tim Holts crackle paint as is the middle of the large circle and is also a DA frame.  Also the journalling written in tiny writing under the ruler.  "Ride in Dad's truck, loved it so much he was very unhappy when Mum went to pick him up,  8 March 2013."  He looks so extremely happy/proud/special doesn't he?  Missing him so much!
 A few embellishments from the Engraver collection added below together with 2 DA Hinges. . 
 The templated moulding paste and pearls below.
 Cork letters were from my stash from quite a while ago. 
Available at Embellish It are the
  • Prima Engraver collection papers and chippies, 
  • liquid pearls, 
  • distress crackle paint. 
  • Prima tape
  • stencils
  • Dusty Attic products
             .... and of course lot's more inspiring scrapbooking supplies including Wild Orchid flowers at a very good price.

 On the whole I am pretty pleased with the way it turned out after rather a lot of procrastinating.
This layout will soon be on display at Embellish It.

This month's sketch challenge over at Dusty Attic (pictured below) was the inspiration for the design.
 Looking forward to Finnabair's classes at Scrappin Patch on the 27th.  I am sure I will learn lots as my mixed media confidence is still taking a back seat at the moment.

That's all for today.  Thank you for stopping by this wet Monday - the wet very welcome!   Off to the scrap room to create a 21st Card.

Until next time.......
