Another page in the Anthropolgie catalog today...little by little I am filling it up. I seemed to have taken pictures at the beginning and the end so I might just have to explain the middle part of this one (the part I went a little crazy).
I started by making some big tags with Distress Stain and the new #10 tags. Loving the pink right now.
I painted the page with Lettuce paint dabber.
A little stamping with paint in Cloudy Blue (be sure the wash stamp right after use). Stampers Anonymous - Mixed Media stamp.
I added one of the big tags with Multi-medium.
All was going good...
Perfect really since my dad was a carpenter. Love how it says in the bottom left corner, "Jobbing Promptly Attended to"...that was my dad in a nutshell. It was some kind of serendipity, so I had to use it.
Can you hear me ripping the darn page apart?
Well, that's what it is...paula ripping paper out of the book (so this is the crazy part).
The heart is just a piece of cardstock I ran through the Vagabond with a mini mover and shaper heart. I discarded the heart and used the leftover piece. Frayed Burlap Distress Stain, dry with Heat Tool, Frayed Burlap Distress Ink on the edges then a spritz of water. Soak up the water with a paper towel. The water tends to roll towards the die cut center, so when it is removed with the paper towel it highlights the heart shape.
I never heard him ever use a cuss word or be cross at my mother. He was a good man. And he used to take me roller skating. He could skate backwards and I was so proud of that for some reason. Funny what we remember about the past.
