The Queen Mum

I created this layout for Lisa Truesdell’s  Start Here workshop at Two Peas in a Bucket.  It is such an informative class that I am so enjoying!  This layout is for the Color Challenge, in which, I used a home dec. magazine page for my inspiration.




I distressed, crumpled up, and inked with gold this dear bird from the        Jenni Bowlin Studio Wren Accessory Sheet.  I also inked these JBS letter stickers, originally cream, in Ranger’s true blue Archival Ink.


Here I used a shipping tag that I altered with layers of walnut ink and a mixture of  Claudine Hellmuth Studio gesso in white and black.  I then stamped the date first in gold ink and then a couple of times in black.


I painted this lovely vellum feather from JBS with Claudine’s landscape green and topped it with the same JBS cream letter stickers.


To emphasize this darling picture of my mom I used this vintage looking frame from JBS.  It is a page from Jenni’s Look- Hodge Podge Book.  This frame was just calling out to be distressed, so I listened by sanding, bending and inking with gold.
