Treasure Your Memories.

I am here with my mid month inspiration project  for Craftdeebowz.
Sometimes you just want to do  something a little bit more special with your card .so ... I took a very plain boring grey piece of backing paper and added texture paste through a diamond shaped stencil. I splashed it with Lindy's stamp gang inks in orange ,grey and brown and dried it all off with a heat gun . I then stamped using a clear Versamark ink pad and  a script stamp from Indigoblu randomly over the paper and heat embossed it with a little gold WOW  embossing powder .Then i distressed the edges .

I painted a chipboard frame with white acrylic paint when it was dry i glued a vintage image behind the frame .

i took a clock face i had made from air dried clay and splashed some lindy's sprays on it so it would match the project colors. and made a pretty cabuchon  using a piece of the paper i had created and a cabuchon blank and glass dome.
I made some foamiran flowers .these were made using ivory foamiran coloured with pastel chalks.

I added pearls, a bow made with string and my CraftDeebowz bow maker, some tonic flourishes  and some Tim Holtz  ideaology words to finish it all off.

  3. You did a fabulous job using mixed media techniques to elevate your papers. I love your clay clock and the decision to add the cabuchon was a wise one. This has a very romantic, victorian look and feel. Beautiful work and we are delighted that you dropped it off at our house at 613 Avenue Create!

  7. Hey Tracey, thank you so much for sharing your project and creativity at 613! I haven't been to your blog for awhile - but as anticipated, I was not disappointed. This project is beautiful with your distressing, layering & mixed media approach! I always love to blow your card up and be able to "feel" my way across your card and feel the texture, distressed edges and 3D objects! Wonderful!
