While Visiting My Sister...
This is the newly acquired little shelf that I added to my room, the one to the right of the drawers. They hold all of my dies. Behind my computer are the wood shelves that my husband made for me to store my Copic markers. Eventually I will paint them white but I was too excited to use them. I love them and the top makes more room to store my Distress ink pads.
My sister and I discovered a new method for a faux copper patina look. We made the clock face and embossed it while I was visiting her. I added the clock to my journal and made this page. I gessoed the paper and then painted it with Luminarte Silks Acrylic Glaze, Nutmeg. I stamped the background using a variety of stamps from my collection. I stenciled a clock face and clock hands using Ferro Graphite metal. I glued the clock face to the page and added patches of acrylic paint dauber "Pool" to pick up the patina of the copper clock face. Now every time I look at this page I will be reminded of the fun I had while visiting my sister.
