100% NL

Hi, Hermine here. This time I made a layout to show my roots :o)

I started by taking a piece of grey board (the size of a scrapbook sheet) and gave it a white wash with gesso. With Stazon Black I stamped Windmill Scene (19124) and the film Strip (18921) with Distress ink Old Paper

then I cut out the alarmclock with an alteration die and put some non permanent tape at the back to hold the parts together. Stamped the Windmill on the front (forgot to take a photo).

Put the inner piece aside and sponge the outer side with Distress ink Old Paper. Then give it a coat of Versmark using the ink pad direct to paper and emboss with Ultra High Gloss Clear.

Place temporary over the image on the background to see if it looks oke.

Use versamark and Ultra High Gloss Clear for the clock hands.

Take a piece of twistel and cut into smaller parts. One large one and 6 smaller ones. Opebn the twistel on parts of the string so they look like leaves. On 2 ends I used a little cotton ball.

Here nothing is glued on yet, but this way you can figure out what layout you want and if you need to add more.

Here are some details of the things I wanted to add to the layout. I used white washi tape and stamped Washi Grid Background (19074) on with Stazon. Did the same with the Washi Lines Background (19073) with M'xed Media Inx. I found these tiny little wooden shoes, gave them a white wash with gesso, sponged a little with Adirondack Mushroom and stamped on them with Adirondack Mushroom using the Swirl (17401). I cut out two butterflies with an alteration die and stamped the Swirl (17401) with Distress Old Paper. Stamped the Girls with Umbrella facing away (19127) wiht Stazon and sponge with Distress ink Old Paper. Then put Versamark on the umbrella abnd embossed with Ultra High Gloss Clear.
Now you can glue all parts on the layout. See photo 1 for the finished result.
