I scrap-booked one 12″ x 12″ page using a photo of my Blog Avatar. The index card has information about the photo. My inspiration was ” Mirror-mirror” by Robin Shakoor from the “Creative Keepsakes” magazine of Sept/Oct 2012.

The patterned paper is from the  Scrap-kit-Family Tree by Ancestry.com and K & Company.
Some of the other supplies and tools I used were: Wood mounted Corset Rubber-stamp by Hampton Art, Wood mounted Key Rubber-stamp, Wood mounted clock Rubber-stamp, Wood mounted Day of the dead Rubber-stamp by Recollections, acrylic dress maker’s dummy stamp, acrylic swirls/scrolls stamps, Paper curl, Slide from Project Runway Fashion Design Projector Set by Fashion Angels, assorted Lock-washers, which I got at the hardware store, Acrylic paint, chipboard, chipboard letters,  index cards, corner rounder (Nail-clipper), pop dots, Modge Podge Matt by Plaid, brass Brads, egg timer spring, Deco Art texturizing medium ( added to brown paint for rust title ) etc.

The technique I used for the rubber-stamped images was from a Tutorial Stamp School Venetian Plaster Technique by thefrugalcrafter Lindsay Weirich.

  1. Wow what a lot of detail. This must have taken a lot of time. Love the old fashioned, rusted, look. That is very popular in Texas. Many shops selling things with that “old” patina on them. Well done you.

  2. This is a wonderful way of preserving memories and history, almost like keeping a diary of (or blog about) important events or a whole lifestyle. Very interesting, but it must require a lot of patience and planning?

    • I am glad you think so as well 😉
      I do a lot of planning, I have found that the better I plan the better it turns out, but I also enjoy the planning part. Scrap-booking requires patience, but I find it very relaxing and very rewarding.
