Bits Of Bundles 2 Pager ~ FotoBella DT

     Get creative with your old bits and pieces from previous FotoBella Bundles, and combine different manufacturers and collections in a fun and eclectic way, like I did on this 2 pager.

     I took my design inspiration from the June 2 Page Sketch Challenge @

     Starting with black cardstock, I used Prima Clear Gesso onto my Prima brick stencil, which took a lot of patience in drying time, but was worth it after covering both pages. Once dry, I went over the bricks with Fired Brick Distress Stain twice. Then I applied my new Ranger Brick Antiquities embossing powder over the bricks, and LOVE the results! 

     The wood scraps are from the  Kaisercraft  BaseCoat 12 X 12 Collection; the ribbon, button, and notebook paper, are from Bo Bunny's Pop Quiz I Want It All Bundle; and all of the chalk embellies are a mix of My Mind's Eye Chalk Studio 2 Sticker Icons, Decorative Alphabet, which I used to spell STOP, Tags, Sticker Labels, Chipboard Elements, and Sleigh Bells Ring I Want It All Bundle. 

     I made the banner from chalk washi tape, and drew white lines around the pieces with a white Puffy Pen, adding the alpha stickers to spell JERKY. I also used the same pen to outline the black chalkboard paper that I used behind the photo of my husband.

     And for my journaling. 

     I got the antlers from My Mind's Eye Sleigh Bells Ring Diecuts, and covered it with Tim Holtz' Distress Collage Medium Crazing. Once dry, I went over it with my Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink Pad to pick up the texture, adding a brad from Sleigh Bells Ring, along with the two I  used to string my banner.

          All of the wood pieces were distressed and machine stitched in black. I touched the edges of the pocket watch sticker with Inka-Gold in Platinum, adding a small pewter brad to the hands.

         I also used Platinum Inka-Gold around the stars, after spritzing them with Antique Linen Distress Spray.
