I took some time this weekend to catch up on a round robin I have been participating in through my Kindred Souls group. I have been super busy with work, so unfortunately I have not been able to upload all of my entries, but my big project is done so I can celebrate with a posting today!
I love the theme of this book. I could not wait to get into my old Sears and Roebuck Catalog to find the perfect image. I think this guy fits the bill! I started the page with a piece of paper from the Engraver line for
Prima. Lots of inking, gilding and distressing techniques were used to yield a background with a bit of interest. I then added my focal image and another scrap from the page I tore up. Then I got busy stamping. I have to say, I am so not a rubber stamper, but this was fun. I always worry I am going to screw up the page, this time I guess I lucked out. A few metal embellishments and I called it complete.
I kept the back pretty simple with another great piece of paper with the same line. I did add a few more rubber stamp images since I was on a roll. In order to grunge this piece up a bit, I tried adding some Pan Pastels for a smoky haze over the page.
I hope that Stephen likes my contribution to his wonderful journal.
