On the Farm ~ My Lil Chicks


Today I'm bringing you a scrapbook page. I'm admitting right up front that these ADORABLE children are not my own. I'm still recuperating from my hard drive crash of 2012 where I lost almost all of my photos, so when I saw a few of these sweet pictures on my friend's FB album I asked if I could use them. They would be perfect with the new On the Farm Perfectly Clear set from Stampendous and now you'll see why.


I used different bottles around my workspace to "mask" off the circles one at a time sprinkling Aged Scarlet and Aged Black Embossing Enamels. Before heat setting the enamels I sprinkled some of the new Red Mica Fragments around so they enamel would act like an adhesive to the fragments when heated. Once it was cool I used my Prismacolor pen and drew some free-hand circle circles inside each embossed circle.


That was a fun technique! Oh and I also forgot that the top photo slides out of the manilla folder! I thought that was clever of me to add a secret place for journaling.


Thanks Em, for letting me scrap your cutie-patootie kids!
