There are days when you would like to skip and this is one day is one for me, although time keeps going on... but for me it seems like yesterday. Six years ago today (April 9th) my best friend/husband (Ralph) passed away from Cancer. I never do any scrapbooking pages about my husband or myself, usually it's just about the kids, right?. So I thought I could honour my husband this way. I saw this video by Limor Webber for Prima Marketing which you can find here. I started off using a vintage paper from the collection by DCWV called 'Tattered Time'. I placed this on a 130 lb white super stock paper using soft gel medium by Golden to adhere it.
I then used my Brick Stencil by The Crafters Workshop TCW191 and used light modelling paste by Golden to add texture to the paper. I also added some more texture using another TCW 267 called 'Ledger'. I then took a Versamark and swiped it onto the texture paste and brushed on some Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals in gold and brown to soften the white paste. I also added some Old Gold Inka Gold by Viva Decor to add more highlight. I then outlined the bricks using a Stabilo pencil which will move when using a water brush to add some depth. For the photo I just added a lot of layers using various papers from the bottom up. First layer was tissue paper, paper from Weekend Market by Bo Bunny, glassine envelope which was stamped on using a texture stamp by Dina Wakley and brown Archival ink by Ranger.
