This page was fun! I used a Tim Holtz's Mask and went over it with the Adirondack Gold & Espresso Paint Dabbers. I lightly brushed glue over the one side and added glitter.
The paper on this page is "Society Page" from Communique Collection. The flowers I cut out using Tim Holtz's Alteration Dies. This dies has four flowers on it and it is, I think, one of my most favorite dies ever!!! My friend is the one who actually has the die and Big Shot. I am binding my time til I get it by using one that I cut out and I trace it and fussy cut it every time that I want to use it! A lot of work, but so worth it for these flowers!
The center of the flowers are embellishments from Vintaj.
This paper is the back of "Hip to be Jive". I used my flower stencils that I cut out from the Alterations die I talked about from above... I centered the "stencil" on top of one of the clocks and cut it out. Underneath that flower is actually the same flower but used as a mask with Glimmer Mist colors Olive Green & Latte. I did cut out all the flowers from a sheet of Tim Holtz's Masks so I could use them with Glimmer Mist and other inking techniques as well. Did I mention that I love these flowers?
This page actually has a happy accident on it! I stamped my design throughout my page with Versamark and then embossed with clear embossing powder. I then used by Adirondack Gold & Espresso Paint Dabbers to create a Shabby Chic look that is also from "A Compendium of Curiosities". I had fussy cut these shapes from Hip to be Jive earlier in the project but never used them... I laid them out on this page and they fit perfect into my stamped image! (That's my Happy Accident!)
I love stamping with my Paint Dabbers, it truly has a Shabby Chic look. Here I am using a stamp from Tattered Angels. I dabbed a little Gold on in places and then went back with the Espresso to get my two toned look. This is a great way to add a little more to your stamping, and you can use your ink pads too! Just remember to always use your lighter color first so as not to mess up your stamp pads, paint dabbers, etc...
So, I hope that you have enjoyed and have been inspired. I look forward to finishing this album with my pictures soon.
