This weeks theme at Simon Says Stamp and Show is..........
I pulled out one of his photo albums and found this picture of him with my mom and the
CREATIVE JOURNEY BEGAN.........
I knew that the Flourish Frame would be just perfect so I dabbed on some Fiber Past and set it aside.
I then took the second piece of the frame and painted it with Charcoal Black Studio Paint and set is aside.
I knew I needed to use the car from Wendy's Art Parts for Guys.......so I lathered on some Antique Bronze Crackle Paint and set it aside to dry.
By this time the black frame was dry, in keeping with the "texture" theme....I dabbed on Crackle Accents.......this is when I truly learned.........I DON'T LIKE THE DRYING PROCESS. And if you get impatient and try to facilitate the process with a Heat It Tool......you may or may not like your results!!
FINALLLLLLLY........everything was dry. I inked up the Fiber Paste Frame with Vintage Photo, wrapped it with some wire mesh and began the assembling process!
I used some Vintage Buttons and a Trinket to accent the buggy.....and as I love to have something drooooping on my creations I pulled out a piece of black and white Baker's Twine! I finished my creation off with a Hanger Clip holding a Love Adage!!
SOOOOOOOO...........link up your creation over at Simon Says Stamp and Show to be in the running for this FANTABULOUS GIFT......
