Journey by Tracey Thorne

 I am still finding pages that need to be cleared off my desk. I think I am up to the fifth one now. Slowly slowly will win this race 😏. I hope you are all enjoying your weekend thus far and are ready to get messy and creative.  This layout was all about just finding things that were on my desk that I chose not to use on other layouts and was too lazy to pop away. 

I started with a pre-worked piece of white cardstock which had a bubble stencil used on it with Liquitex modelling paste and some Dina Wakley paint in fuschia mixed through it {I am thinking but going from a very bad retention of memory}. I freshened the paint up with a little gesso over the top and a quick rub off with a wipe. I added a little black stitching across the page and then created a rectangular border to encompass the ephemera and photo. A little black shadow was added along the line using and ALLS pencil and smudging it with water.

  

I have then layered a few bits and pieces of paper & fabric ephemera - A playing card, old tags, some Muslin that I dyed with some yum Speckled Egg Ink, off cuts from Vicki Boutin & Heidi Swapp printed paper, Calico, Tab from Flutterby Designs, number cutfile created by myself. At this stage I added the photo and stitched an ephemera tag to tie it all together. I have also added hand stitching to the top and bottom corners of the photo. I found staples were the quickest and easiest way to attach a lot of this layering with a little glue for good measure squirted underneath.



I have then added a little more 3D ephemera to this page using Tim Holtz arrows, clock face and gasket. I have added a few wood numbers also and a offcut of hexagon chippy. Ooh and stamping I needed to add a little more black for balance. I have used AALL & Create Checkmate stamps which help tie in with the muslin check. I have also added my title using Heidi Swapp Acetate word - journey.



Finally I used some Tim Holtz Rub ons to add a few more words to the page. A blacked stitched border finished my page off. 


I do hope you have a creative weekend... bit jealous that Kylie has her retreat this weekend and I live a million miles away and just have to wish from afar. Have a fabulous retreat everyone!

Don't forget today is the last day for our October moodboard for entries to be uploaded in the Scrapping Clearly Share and Inspire facebook page... so if you haven't given it a crack maybe it can spark your mojo as there is nothing like the last minute.

have a great weekend.
