~~~ Oma ~~~

I created this LO to promote Dusty Attic at Fruitful Hands, our local retailer in South Africa... I wanted to show how versatile Dusty chippies are and how much treatment they can take! I also used our local paper range Fabscrabs Paper, Timeless travels: Fillegree and Flower. This is a photo of my Grandmother Maria Beuel on my mothers side.                                                                
Please remember that you can have a real close look at the photo by clicking on it twice!

I am also posting this LO on Scrap Africa's blog for their Fabscraps challenge...Please visit our own local blogsite!!!

Foilage DA 0506
I soaked the chippie in water for a few minute, then layered it in three piece, curled the top two pieces, painted it with Dabber Willow when dried. I dabbed some Distress stain 'Vintage Photo'  and  'Victorian Velvet' onto it. Then I randomly applied clear UTEE and some Distress Stains which I heated until I was satisfied with the colouring.

Vase DA 0270
Painted with Dabber 'Willow'. When dry I embossed with an embossing folder. Applied Distress Rock Candy crackling Paint. Wiped the excess paint off with a piece of card stock. That leaves you with the crackle in the de-bossed area.
Chain Fence DA 0450 was treated the same way as the Clock.

Vintage Clock #1
I painted the clock with Pearl Dabber. Applied Distress Stain 'Vintage Photo' and 'Victorian Velvet" and randomly applied clear UTEE.

Thank you once again for looking!
