Can't believe that another week has come and gone! It was a pretty wild one! I'm back today sharing my latest lo using the SOD February kit. It's a photo of my Hubby, Kip. I just love this photo! I used a lot of mixed media techniques on this one. More info to follow!
I started by ripping 2 different 7 Dots papers included in the Coordinating Add On. I wanted to create the illusion of mountains. I tucked in corrugated cardboard pieces, joint paper, and a Blue Fern Studio chipboard piece. The BFS chipboard piece was coated with Ranger Black Archival Ink.
I stamped some mountains and trees (Tim Holtz) along the edges of some of the ripped edges. After all we are Alaskans!! LOL!
I stamped the top paper around the area of the photo mat. I used black modeling paste and a Tim Holtz stencil to get a real grungy look. I also splattered around the areas with white ink to tone down the black and intense black and to look like snow.
I created my focal part of the lo using tags included in the Elements Add On, paper from the Coordinating Paper Add On, a mailing envelope and chipboard. Along the edge of one tag on the left, and the bottom mat I used zipper pieces that were gifted to me by my dear friend Karen Zueger-Brown. It is bright yellow, but you can barely see it!. I stamped the top corner of the envelope. I used the Tim Holtz Industrious Stickers along the photo (included in the Main Kit). I heat embossed the skeleton clocks with gold embossing powder (both from my stash).
Before I glued down the matted focal pieces I adhered black thread all around to add more texture.
Finally I knotted on both ends 3 pieces of twine which was included in a previous kit. I stapled down the middle piece and glued the other 2.
Thanks so much for stopping in today. I would love to hear from you, so leave a comment if you would like. Kits are available from the Scraps of Darkness store at http://www.scrapsofdarkness.com
