POCKET WATCH & SPROCKETS LAYOUT
Today I am sharing with you a vintage layout I created featuring Want2Scrap® Shifting Gears Small Chipboard Embellishments and DecoArt® Metallic Lustre paint. I started my 12 x 12 Layout using Heartfelt Creations Balmy Breeze Paper Collection.
I painted the gears using a sponge brush with DecoArt® Metallic Lustre Champagne Ice, DecoArt® Metallic Lustre Iced Espresso, DecoArt® Metallic Lustre Copper Kettle, DecoArt® Metallic Lustre Gold Rush, and DecoArt® Dazzling Metallics Peacock Pearl. I then added to the sprockets Want2Scrap® Nestabling Sprightly Sprockets and some 72 Count Self Adhesive Rhinestones in Silver/Clear, Turquoise, and Black.
At the top of the page I used Want2Scrap® Swirls - Silver Rhinestones and added some 72 Count - Turquoise Rhinestones - Self Adhesive. I painted the Memories - Fancy Chipboard Word with DecoArt® Dazzling Metallics Peacock Pearl and DecoArt® Glamour Dust® Aqua for some extra sparkle.
To create the distressed edge on the page I used Tim Holtz's Paper Distressor Tool and Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Peacock Feathers. I also sprayed it with Ranger Perfect Pearls Mists in Perfect Pearl before adhering it to a cream colored piece of the Heartfelt Creations Balmy Breeze Paper. I then added the Want2Scrap® Swirls Finesse - Silver Rhinestones and added some 72 Count - Turquoise Rhinestones - Self Adhesive to the upper right corner. I assembled the pocket watch using Tim Holtz Idea-ology pieces and added some Stampenndous Gilded Mica Framents before closing the timepiece. With Art Glitter Adhesive - Dries Clear glue I added some Tim Holtz Mini Gears to the clock face and finished by adding some Baby Bling Rhinestones in Silver. I adhered the pocket watch and chain to the page with Helmar Premium Craft Glue. Finally I added some more Want2Scrap® Rhinestones in Silver and Turquoise on the bottom of the page.
I matted my picture on metallic paper that had been die cut using Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight. Most vintage pictures I buy at my local antique mall, but today I used a special picture. This man happens to be my great Uncle Cleo and I put this layout in a shadow box and gave it to my Mom for her Birthday!
I hope you enjoyed my vintage layout showing some more great ways to use DecoArt® & Want2Scrap® products together!
