Today's my last time as Visiting Artist at Gingersnap Creations, where the theme is Things That Leap. The gorgeous background paper is from 7 Dot Studios. It's their new Wonderland collection, which I'm loving.
The title letters were originally a very shiny brown. I dulled them with sandpaper and then recolored with different Ranger Color Washes. The leap year letters, red numbers, and metal (Ideology) are Tim Holtz, and the tan numbers are Jenny Bowlin. I forget where I got the Scrabble letters; the notebook punch is Fiskars.
This was a piece of 12X12 paper that I cut down. I used a strip of text paper (spritzed with Color Wash) to cover the seam and then finished off the bottom with a strip I'd run through the notebook punch... this enabled me to keep the dark edging on all sides, even the cut ones. Hope that makes sense.... that there are no white cut lines, just good grungy edges.
As this month Scrapbookers Anonymous has a "G" theme going, I'm hoping the gears on my clock will count.
Thanks so much for visiting. Hope you enjoy this day that only comes around once in a blue moon.
