I take it that the Opening Gate was meant more for an Off the Page Project, for it has hinged doors, but I just loved the idea of using it on a LO! I painted the three layers in shades of blue and gave the top one some spots of Perfect Pearls highlights.
I embossed the Ironworks with black Stampendous Aged Enamel and placed some flowers and Fern Leaves behind them.
The stamped images are from a LeBlanche stamp.
The Butterfly is from the Flutterby's and Butterfly set from Twiddleybitz and was inked with Distress Inks and some Glossy Accent.
A Zipper and Typo Bulb from Prima ... I coloured the Zipper with some Alcohol Ink.
The wings of the Cherub were dusted with some Perfect Pearls in blue and green. The flowers are Harlow Cashew from Prima.
I treated the Fern Leaves by dabbing some Texture Paste on them, then inked them with Distress Inks and a little Glitter.
Thank you for taking a stroll down memory lane with me...If you still have your Father...treasure them, for they may be gone all to soon....
My father smiled and passed away to the spirit land.
