Yayyyy... was finally in the mood for a boy's layout. The new Dusty Attic Art Deco Frame, teamed up with some Dusty Attic Jumbo Cogs felt just right for this photo!
I coloured the frame and the cogs with warm white paint first, and then added Tim Holtz Stains and Inks, dabbing more paint to blend and tone the colours. Rock Candy Crackle was applied afterwards.
Once the layout was assembled I went over the metal elements and chipboard with some white paint using a dry brush, just to help them all integrate with one another better.
I have used some K&Co Ancestry.com papers here as well as some Tim Holtz Kraft Resist paper, 7 Gypsies Transparencies, Tim Holtz & 7 Gypsies Gears and Cogs, String and some watch face surrounds.
Take care of you.
