Scrapbook Layout JAI77

Another challenge over at the Just Add Ink
website and this week we have a Sketch

After having a think about this one, I decided I was going to take this Sketch and put it in to a Scrapbook Layout. I always need inspiration and a reason to catch up with my scrapbook layouts.

I had a look through all my stamps sets and decided to use a set that I haven't used in a while. "Sense Of Time". With the stamp set chosen I needed to work out my colours. You see I already had the sketch designed for me, I just needed to follow that. So I decided to go with abit of a vintage look. Choc Chip, Very Vanilla PDSP and Very Vanilla.

I started with the great easy effect of paper tearing, and yes I had a ripping time, as I did rip quite alot of papers. Now with that done I just had to put the finishing touches to it.
You should see my desk with all the ripped pieces of paper I have left..........Oh I just had a thought I will use some of these for the bit that goes along the left hand side......Well not bad at all, I think it fits in with the layout....Waste not want not I say.hehe.
Anyway the finishing touches to this page. I stamped the Clock and tore it out and then I used the Cracked Glass technique to finish that off. Some antique brads and linen thread and there you have it. All done.

Here is a close up of the Cracked Glass Clock
