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….6ee0eb86bed64989b27189fc610ccdb6I 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….6d7e963866f64b4bab64dfff43ebdbc1 (1)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…154a0c3969af436ea19c34bbe0c1fa97For 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.311d70b702234bdb83ca48443d46ffde
