Together on Furlough by Michelle Henderson

I'm back again today with a more "traditional" vintage layout this time, using the wonderful Limited Edition paper range designed by Michelle Grant.

A sneaky sneak...

I started with some stamping ink and my platform, stamping along the top edge of my page with the Unpredictable stamp and the Original paper.

 I then used the Enough stencil and Heavy White Gesso to stencil some cogs here and there in a vaguely vertical area, either side of the pattern.

Time to add colour - I used Colour Shimmer Dust in Lush , which I sprinkled on after spraying with water...

I thinned some Colour Artist Ink in Walnut down into a mister, and then sprayed through the same stencil in a couple of areas, and splattered a bit of both colours here and there. I also used the Colour Shimmer Brush Marker in Gold for some splatter - loving that sparkle 😍

I used the watered down Walnut to edge my diecut clock, and undiluted Walnut on the chipboard, which I also edged with the Gold marker.

I also mixed some Colour Mica Powder in Olive Grove and Espresso into clear gel, and used it to alter some metal cogs.

I realised I hadn't taken all the photos I meant to, so here's exactly what I used...

And here's how it ended up - 

See you next time!
