Time Springs Eternal LO

     Hello! I'm back with a layout using some older Bo Bunny collections, (Trail Mix and the Avenues) combined with some masking, stamping, and embossing.

     I was inspired by the colors and natural elements in the mood board used for the  February Time ChallengeMixed Media & Art

     It also gave me the perfect opportunity to play with my Prima Rust Pastes, which I masked, applied to the brads, some stamping, and to the chipboard "time". 

     The background was masked with some LSG sprays, also used to color the stamped butterflies, and a couple of the flowers. Then I used the Ranger Mini Birch Stencil with Prima's Heavy White Gesso, behind an actual piece of bark. 

     I popped up this alarm clock that I stamped with Ranger's Jet Black Archival Ink, and applied some touches of the rust paste to. Then I covered the face with Glossy Accents. 

     The majority of the stamping was done with the Prima Finnabair Rust & Dust Stamp, including the odometers that I stamped onto the leftover packaging from my Petaloo flowers, with Rusty Hinge Distress Ink applied to the edges.

     The clock below was embossed with LSG Midnight Copper EP, also used on the edges of the fussy cut clocks on top. To create moss, I used some stipple brushes with Distress Embossing Powders (Brushed Corduroy, Peeled Paint, and Shabby Shutters), applied in that order, along the bottom and right side of my page.  

     I framed my page with some fibers, colored with the same sprays, and anchored with some rusty brads.

     Finally I made the doors with paper from Bo Bunny's the Avenues, and stamped a keyhole on the right. The doors were placed onto black cardstock with the edges embossed with Distress Embossing Powder (Peeled Paint and Shabby Shutters).

     And to Get In On the Action over at Frilly and Funkie,  I made the doors open to this photo.

     Thanks for looking!
