DT Project #2 by Minxy, Featuring:

Prima's Engraver Collection

Hay Snazzy Followers,
I hope you enjoyed my first project and matching video from Monday.. Today I am back with my second offering of the month, This time something nice and simple
The humble scrapbook layout.

I always find that if you have nice papers, you don't really need alot else to make a fun and interesting layout.
For mine I used the 'Roulette' sheet as my base. 
It was actually black and white but it looked far too stark for the photo's I wanted to use so I swiped the whole page with 'antique linen' distress ink, rubbing in on harder in places to get a patchy effect. I then distressed the sides with my distress-it-all and punched out some sections with a border punch, I then inked it all round making it nice and grungy.

I cut out the old polaroid type frames from the 'Calligraphy' sheet to mount my photo's on, along with the tape measure strip and pocket watch.
I backed the pocket watch onto some card before fussy cutting it out, I then covered it in 'rock candy' distress crackle. Once it was dry I rubbed 'vintage photo' distress ink over the top, and pushed into the cracks with a baby wipe to give a nice aged look.

I backed the strip of measure tape with some raffia lace from my stash, and embellished the page with idea-ology tickets and tickets from the 'Bank Note' sheet, along with some of the yummy patterned Engraver Roses.
