Amazing for IndigoBlu


I love the Lost Family Collection from Indigoblu the images are fabulous and perfect for mixed media projects. I die cut this very dapper Policeman to follow the curves in the design of the After Morris Collection paper, and added lots of layers of texture. And did I mention we are having a little blog hop over at The IndigoBlu Blog with a fab prize of a full set of the Colour Me Flower stamps up for grabs.


Here's how my project started.


With this gorgeous sheet of patterned paper, well when I say paper, it's coated so you get a fabulous resist when you apply watered down GeeSsoGood.
Which means you can add lots of layers of products, without the paper going soggy!


These two sheets have been sat on my desk for months. They were left over from another project and have been stamped in FlitterGlu using the gorgeous Vintage Flourish stamp and covered in yummy Chocolate Box MegaFlakes
I distressed the edges and layered them onto my base sheet.


 Then I added a piece of scrap paper and crumped and distress one of the 6" square Cartography papers, that had a light coating of GeeSoGood over it.


  After adhering all of the paper layers, I added a strip of hessian, some die cut cogs, a clock and a wooden wood along with the image of the Policeman.


Using a scrap of card to cover over the main image I flicked watered down White GeeSsoGood Black GeeSsoGood and a little watered down Goldfinger Metallic Paint for a little sheen.


So there he is in all his glory a very proud looking Policeman.
Happy Crafting

The lovely muted colours of the design really makes the photo pop out as the first thing to look at and then my eyes spanned the rest of the layout which is gorgeous
