My Creative Scrapbook - I Like Big Trucks (And I Cannot Lie)

I'm back today with my third project with the glorious November My Creative Scrapbook Limited Edition kit.

The Tale of Treasures paper has gorgeous subtle blue patterning which I built on with some stenciling. To get a subtle blue, I mixed two colours of Dazzlerz with clear crackle paste, and sprinkled clear glitter on top. For a little added definition, I traced the outline of the damask pattern with a grey Aquarelle pencil and blended it into the background with water.

To create a masculine look I used corrugated cardboard, and diecut then dry embossed some gears out of Kraft Glassine, which I distressed with blue and gold paints.

I added a couple rustic handmade blooms made from kraft glassine and burlap, and diecut some vines from green cardstock.

I love the fussy-cuttable images on the Blue Fern papers, and had cut out this pocket watch with a bird inside from one of the calling cards to use on a project. I also tucked one of the metal Prima trinkets into the cluster.

I painted the canvas Thickers from the kit with mists to colour match them to my picture as a final touch.

Thanks for stopping by today!
