I have fallen in love with the Found Relatives from Tim Holtz.
They've captured my heart. And these little guys from long ago are no exception.
This is a small journal page that I removed from the book and will add back in with Tissue Tape later.
I find it's a lot easier to work with this way and doesn't detract from your Journal.
I removed the top layer of the card from the chipboard. It comes apart easily.
Then I glued the Boys to the page with Matte Multi Medium. When dry I added Modeling Paste over the Burlap Stencil and let it dry. It appears I had some Distress Ink on the stencil from a previous time, and that ended up looking pretty cool!
Then I glued torn pieces of old book pages randomly around the edges with Glue-n-Seal. Use the glue over the top of the torn papers as well to seal.
The coloring of the photo is all done in layers of inks with a brush, and pens.This is just the first layer. I kept adding until I got the colors I liked. I added more Distress Inks all over for more color.
The last layer is stamps that I heat set each time just to be sure.
"The Boys" is stamped onto white Stamping Paper and aged with Distress Inks. Then I mounted it onto black mat board. The Expedition Word Band has a couple of blue paint colors added and wiped off to make the word stand out. Add it with 2 brads.
