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
This is a photo of my dad’s granddad, Charles, taken in world war 1
And a picture of my dad, as a boy from the 1940’s
I have actually made a pair but the other one is not quite ready yet
The finished product, for my dad’s office
Dad loved it I’m pleased to say,
and my mum liked it so much it’s been promoted to the lounge lol
Thanks for looking in today
