Autumn really has made its entrance in Stockholm, when I pulled up the blinds this morning I was met with a milky white wall outside the window. Fog!! That really is too early. An old Swedish saying is when the rowan tree has an abundance of berries, the winter will be long and hard. In that case, we are in for another perma frost. Yuk!
Last Friday I promised to share the sequel to my #72 Mamma and without further do, here it is. As the page is for the book I'm making for her, the title is in Swedish; "Svunnen tid". I've used the title before, but it pretty much captures what it's all about; Bygone Days.
As you can see, the photo of my MIL was taken at the same studio shoot as the previous one.
The backing paper is from Swedish Pion Design. I've used the same TA Glimmer Mist in Sand and Suede as on my other page to keep both backgrounds together. I've also masked/misted a big clock face in TA Patina.
The tag and the butterfly are cut out from a Pion Design paper. The tag and the strip of muslin are dyed in very strong coffee. Two strips of lace, one left natural and the other one dyed in TA Patina. The same ink in Champagne poured out in a rivulet. Here you can also see the script on the backing paper a bit closer.
The golden/teal fabric brad is from Danish Tilda. The tape measure is also cut out from a paper from Pion Design. I pulled out the centres of two gardenias and replaced the stamens with new fabric flowers centres from Australian online store Maxine's Mélange. That's the "fuzzy" brown&white.
In the same cluster is a Prima bloom and a key from my stash, cannot for the world remember which brand it is. I made the little metal embellishment by cutting out a section with the birds from a Pion Design paper and glueing it onto the trinket and adding liquid pearls around the border. Some mother of pearl buttons from Danish Tilda finishes the cluster together with a coffee-dyed tag tied with a dito strip of muslin.
I bought the zink wreath at local craft store Panduro quite a while ago. Here I have dabbed acrylic paint in Sky, Patina and Brown on it to give it an additional weathered look.
On the left a torn piece of Gessoed cardboard and another strip of coffee dyed muslin tied around the zink wreath.
And that's it! now I had really better get going with my morning preparations, time to leave for work soon! Have a great rest of the week and thanks so very very much for having a peek!
Toodeli pip! xoxoxox Eila
