DAD Circa 1967 {12x12}

There's a new challenge up @ Scrapki-wyzwaniowo by the dear dear AMY LASSITER >>> FEATHERS!! I did this layout :

I chose a piece of 9th wave by Finnabair and 7 Dots Studio, and a super old photograph of my dad. I've been holding onto this photo for a few months now... and I thought it was time to pay homage. In the background is some black and white thread, cheesecloth, a tag from 9th wave by 7 Dots Studio, Line Of Chevrons stamp by Viva Las VegaStamps! embossed in white powder, tissue tape, and Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels. The photo has been glued down, but also taped down with Washi Tape and stamped with the brand new Through The Looking Glass stamp by Viva Las VegaStamps! in Archival Ink by Ranger. The UmWowStudio Feather has been covered in gesso, heated, and splattered, then layered with a Tim Holtz Clock Face and Prima Junkyard Finding.

This cluster of embellishments consists of a paper doily, Prima leaves and Junkyard Findings, a paper clip, black thread, a piece from the Life Is Good flair set @ UmWowStudio, a nut, a clock hand from Tim holtz, some washi tape and Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels.

You can see really well here the white paint in the background, it's just gesso mixed with a bit of water. Another tip I picked up from Amy Lassiter... no white mists seem to accomplish what I want, but watered down gesso is a sure fit! You can also see really well in this photo the Charcoal and Inch Worm Glimmer Mists that have been my favorite combo. I layered some UmWowStudio Layered Banner chipboard pieces with Tim Holtz's Tissue Tape and strung them together using May Arts Burlap Twine. Last but not least are a few gems, brads, and alphas from Pink Paislee and Michaels.

Now.. get ya some feathers and enter the challenge @ Scrapki!
