So Much Done Today!

I found the picture of this little boy through Pinterest and as soon as I saw him I thought of this childhood rhyme.  You can find the picture HERE.

I used Tim Holtz Distress Paint Daubers (Peeled Paint and Broken China) to start the background.  I added various stencils using TH Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain distress Ink.  The wrought Iron fence was done by using an edge stamp and adding lines for the fence using a Pitt pen.  I don't know the name of the stamp because I misplaced the packaging but this is the set below.

Sorry there is a glare on it but you can see the stamp that I used at the very bottom of the set.  I used TH Hanging Sign Die for the sign.  I colored it using Scattered Straw, then went over that lightly with Vintage Photo.  I sprinkled it with water, let it dry and then went over it again with Vintage Photo.  I printed the saying on computer paper, tore it to fit the sign and distressed it the same way I did the sign itself. I used a black Gelato to edge the sign.  I added eyelets to the sign and then did this.....

I put my trinket case back on the shelf and it slid off, hit the floor and spread all my brads. eyelets, buttons, keys, etc. ALL over the floor.  So I swept them up and dumped them back in to be sorted at a later date.  UGH!

Lastly I drew music notes using a Pitt Pen.  I also drew circles at the top of the sign for chains.


 I did the background using TH Scattered Straw, Broken China and Stormy Sky. I used TH Moon and Stars Die and colored them using TH Distress Paint, Scattered Straw and Wild Honey.  Then I used TH Splatters stencil, an Embossing Pen and Stampendous Pirate Gold Embossing Powder to add some dimension to the moon.  I also randomly outlined the stars with the embossing pen and used Stampendous Gold Tinsel Embossing Powder.  I drew some dangley lines from the moon to the stars and added some bling stars that I had in my stash.  The sweet little girl was also a Pinterest find,which can be found HERE.  I colorized her using water color crayons, added a paper crown cut from an old Thesaurus.  I managed to cut the word Moony, which I thought fit nicely.  I added some bling to the crown and pearl buttons for the dress.

I am very happy with both pages BUT, I am finding that Little Tommy Tucker is getting gold glitter all over himself because these pages are opposite each other in my journal!
