It's finally Fall in Alaska. I just LOVE this time of year, the leaves are turning, the temps are down, it's starting to rain, and smells so fresh!!! Time to make Apple Crisp and Pie.
So excited to share the SOD September kit - Tana's Industrial Odyssey!! It's filled with the Kaisercraft "Time Machine Collection" and Marion Smith's "Timekeeper" collection. Perfect for the masculine side of my scrapping adventure. Let's get started with my first lo of my son, Patrick. I absolutely adore this photo of him! It really shows his Alaskan demeanor, rough, rugged, and ready for adventure!
There is a lot of history behind this lo, which I will reveal later! I started with both the background papers from the Timekeeper Paper Pattern Add-On. I ripped the top piece, distressed the edges. I then stenciled the little squares on the background using modeling paste.
There are so many patterned cards and tags, I just had a ball layering them around the photo. There were stickers, and little crystals that I used to added some elements to the lo.
I embossed some chipboard from my stash using the Lindy's Stamp Gang embossing powder included in the Color Add-On. Really love how they turned out. I also backed them with pattern paper which I fussy-cut to put behind the inner portion of the clock and then backed the whole piece with cork. I used a cog that was included as part of the Main Kit and some large clock hands for the lower clock.
Finally, I added some mica flakes, glitter and micro beads in various places around the lo (frame).
I really hope that you enjoyed my lo!! I'm so glad that you visited me today and hope that you will stop back. I still haven't gotten the Comments issued resolved on this software. I would love to get your feedback. Sometime soon I hope.
If you would like to be able to create your own lo you can purchase the kits from Scraps of Darkness at the site below. I hope you join us also on our Facebook page. Until next time, enjoy the season!
