Bits Of Bundles 2 Pager

      Get creative with your old bits and pieces from previous FotoBella Bundles, and combine different manufacturers and collections in a fun and eclectic way, like I did on this 2 pager.

     I started by making the bricks with my Prima Brick Stencil and Clear Gesso applied onto black cardstock. Once dry, I applied two coats of Fired Brick Distress Stain, and finished them with a coat of Ranger's Brick Antiquities Embossing Powder. 

     The wood scraps are from the Kaisercraft Basecoat 12 X 12 Collection: the ribbon, notebook paper, and button are from Bo Bunny's Pop Quiz I Want It All bundle; and the chalk embellies are from My Mind's Eye Chalk Studio 2 Tags, Sticker Labels, Sticker Icons, 12 X 12 Chipboard Elements, and Decorative Alphabet, which I used to spell STOP, and Sleigh Bells Ring I Want It All Bundle. 

       To make the banner, I used Chalk Washi Tape and outlined the pieces with a white puffy pen, before adding the alpha stickers that come in the Sleigh Bells Ring Bundle to spell JERKY. I used the same pen to outline the chalk paper behind the photo of my husband.

        And for my journaling! 

     I took the antlers from My Mind's Eye Sleigh Bells Ring Diecuts, and covered it with a coat of Tim Holtz' Distress Collage Medium Crazing. Once dry, I went over it with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink  to pick up the texture, adding a Decorative Brad to the center, along with the two I strung the banner with. 

     All of the wood pieces were distressed with the Tim Holtz Paper Distresser, and machine stitched along the edges. I touched the edges of the pocket watch sticker with Platinum Inka-Gold, and added a small pewter brad to the hands.

     I also used Platinum Inka-Gold around the stars, after giving them a spritz of Antique Linen Distress Spray.

     So take out your old bundles and scraps from FotoBella, and don't be afraid to mix things up!
