Hello,today I am here to share with you, a few more LO’s I did, for our kitchen wall. I do have to say, that this task, is getting harder to do, (working with the same paper,over & over,lots of boy LO’s, & with the color tones, being the same trough out, I am finding that, I may be getting a bit repetitious,as my embellishments are limited). But as I am doing the LO’s,I am adding them to the wall, & the wall is looking amazing,so it gives me the drive to keep on going.
The first three 3 LO’s are of my nephews,the first one is of Quenton….I used Kings Square-BS,Veteran Ship-BS & Sitting on the Dock from the Nyhavn Collection. The chipboard used is from Dusty Attic.
Other products used:TCW, template, The Story 12X12, Coffee Splotch 6X6, Prima Texture Paste Graphite, & metal, Tim Holtz paints,rock candy crackle,brushed pewter crackle,paint & stain,LuminArt Jasper Red
Here are some closeups of detail….To deepen the color of Veterans Ship-BS,I painted on Tattered Angels Indian corn & rubbed in some pebbles chalk…I inked all the edges of the paper using a mixture of charcoal & grey mist,I used a brush to do this…For the red used on the chipboard ,I used my wall paint,for the red,plus I applied a coat of clear crackle varnish. I used LuminArt’ (Jasper Red)H20 over the crackle on the chipboard. The red was still a bit to bright,so I toned with wintermist gray H20,once the red had dried. I used this on all the chipboard in these LO’s….I also inked the edges of the chipboard using a ink pad..I used distressed brushed pewter stain,paint & crackle on the rest of the chipboard.
Here is my next LO,of Quentons brother Elliot…I used all the paints & metal as I did in the above LO. The Templates used are TCW, dart board 6×6,contact sheet 6×6, & Tim Holtz rulers….
My next LO is of Justin,Quinton & Elliots cousin…..The stencils used: TCW, believe 12×12, Specimens 6×6,mini screen print, 6×6, Tim Holtz rulers.
This next LO is of my Mother with her siblings,my mom is holding the baby….This is the last photo,I took of my Mom with her Siblings,before she passed away June 2013. Mom is the beautiful lady,lower right corner…The last LO,for today,me with my best friend Tenely.I am on a count down,only 16 left to go,then I can show you a before & after of the wall!!! Thank you so much for taking the time to look….Rachelle
