My sweet baby bird…I have had this layout in my head for a while so it was so satisfying to get it out and see it on paper!
I mentioned to you before that when I see zig zag stitching it reminds me of old linens so it was a no brainer that I would include them on this layout for Antiqued Friday. I also did some hand cutting on the Crate Paper for “Liam” and then stitched over it, giving it a vintage appliqué feeling.
I used a Prima stencil from a previous kit and my Bad Girls Couture Molding Paste to make the textured designs and then rubbed on some gold paint after it all dried. You also see I did a lot of distressing along the papers edges with a distressing tool and inked everything with a brown stamp pad.
I used some clear crackle medium to make a crazed, antiqued effect that kinda reminds me of vintage china once rubbed with some brown ink. I topped it all with a distressed Prima flower, inked with brown ink and rubbed with gold acrylic paint.
