Today, I have a layout to share with you that I created with the Scraps Of Darkness April Kit~Laura's Wish. I used a a photo that I took on my Father In Laws farm. It is of one of his old, rusty, retired tractors. The Harrison men love a good tractor, and a good days hard work! So this is my salute to them:
I used some of that wonderfully, rustic wood grain paper from the kit for the base layer.
I then took some corrugated board and tore it so get some of the backing as edge then sprayed it with Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stain In Rusy Hinge, hitting it randomly with some of the Lindy's Magical Powder then over spraying it with Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stain In Tarnished Brass.
I used another piece of kit paper that I tore, inked and then hit randomly with some more of the Lindy's Magical Powder and then oversprayed it with the Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stain In Tarnished Brass, I then added another piece of the corrugated board, and popped my photo on wind topped it with some stash metal buckles and TH gears from a past kit.
Here you can see where I fussy cut some of the large clocks out from the papers, added metal gears and tucked them into my tears.
I used the twine from the kit to wrap my edges and pin them down with a metal brad.
The quote was cut from from the pieces in the kit and distressed and stained then added on with foam tape for dimension.
The flowers were from the April Floral Add On, and the gears were stash pieces.
I hope you have enjoyed my rustic salute to those hard working men in my life!! I hope you have a great week!! Hugs ~Renea
