Scrapbook Picture

Standard

Hi everyone

Here is my second post for today, this is the present I made for my dad for Fathers day today.

I added the tag and some cogs, in keeping with the theme.

This is my first scrapbook layout, I have to say it was inspired by Sue, but it is very similar to a layout on a canvas, which is probably why I enjoyed making it so much.

Originally I was going to make it as a scrapbook, but then as it took shape I decided to put it into a frame,and give it to my dad for fathers day.

I used a pine frame from the Range about £5 or £6

I couldn’t just leave it plain lol

so I painted and distressed it, and finished it off with some gold leaf and varnish, which you will see at the end.

This is part of the layout, I used techniques by Andy Skinner to age the cogs
