The Little Man in My Life

I did this page on the Fiskateers site. We scraplifted a great layout by Heather and it sort of reminded me of a Tim Holtz-like style. (What is that style called anyways? Steampunk? I always call it "Tim Holtz Style".) There is a lot of distress ink and stickles and naturally his stamps and papers including the Kraft Glassine.

This is the little man in my life, my newest grandson, Damien.

Fiskars punches used were "Kaleidoscope" Border and "Love Takes Flight".
Other Fiskars products used were stamps, stamp press, scissors and cutter. 

Aren't these the cutest? It took a lot of trial and error to make them. I knew I wanted baby shoes and of course had none in stamps or even on my Cricut Cartridges so I found a clipart of baby shoes, printed it and cut it out. I used Adirondack "Metallic Acrylic Paint (Copper) as the base coat. Then took a Sharpie pen and drew the details back on the shoes, once it dried I used Glam (Bon Bon) over that, drew the details back, then before it dried completely I finished it off with Glossy Accents but I 'brushed up' parts of it where it would be worn or scuffed. 

The camera is a stamp and I added some Distressed Stickles (Black Soot) and of course Glossy Accents for the lens.

 The wings were done with the Bon Bon Glam and the heart is Bronze Ultra Thick Metallic Embossing Powder. 

I stamped the footprint on the Fragment with Vintage Photo Embossing Powder and heated it. Then I blotted the back of the Fragment with Distressed Ink (Frayed Burlap) then I blotted on some 
 Mustard Seed being sure not to get any of this in the center and after that I put just a touch of the Worn Lipstick around the edges of that then I put a couple of drops of the Blending Solution in the center to give it that sort of watermark effect. 

The two chipboard swirls on the sides were done with the same technique on Tim Holtz's site 12 Tags of 2012 October seen here. Just scroll down to step 16 where he is doing the custom colored rock candy distress stickles dry glitter. (Wow, say that 3 times fast!)
