Hello blog visitors, Kirsten here with three more pages from my altered, PaperMania album. These albums are made of strong chipboard & are available in assorted shapes.
For this page I used Distress inks – Crushed Olive, Peeled Paint & Stormy Sky - on white cardstock & flicked water on top to create a watermarked, mottled effect. I stamped the crackled background & large clock with Old Paper DI & dried with a heat tool. Then I stamped the Artemio butterfly three times with Frayed Burlap DI & dried. The butterfly was stamped again, off centre, with Adirondack Watermelon ink. I stamped it again onto white, scrap card & punched out three pieces for the opposite side.
On this page I hand cut a ‘house’ shape out of metal card, stamped on to it with black Stazon & when that was dry, I coloured it with Spectrum Noir pens & put it through an embossing folder. I glued it onto the textured paper & stapled that to the G45 Kraft paper. That in turn, was matted & layered onto more textures paper & a torn piece of Core’dinations. Note: the textured paper doesn’t accept DST very well, I have found that a wet glue, i.e., an ordinary PVA, works better.
This dress form is from Craftwork Cards, as is the backing paper. I coloured the top of the dress form with Chipped Sapphire, then heat embossed with WOW Clear Sparkle EP. The skirt was cut from gold cardstock & put though am embossing folder.
