Handmade

January 12, 2019

By Ethan……. Today’s page shares photos of some stools and a coffee table that my 12-1/2 year old grandson designed and built.  He made three stools, two for himself and one for Dave who teaches both Ethan and my husband to play the guitar.  He gifted the coffee table to my husband, which is for the music room we are going to create in our back bedroom.  I thought that it was fantastic that he created these by himself and therefore just had to preserve the memory.  I stamped the Sheet Music background stamp onto the top right and bottom left hand corner of Basic Black 12″ x 12″  card (unfortunately no longer available for purchase) using Versamark ink.  I sprinkled the image with Silver Embossing powder and heat set it.  I attached the photos to the page and added a journaling block.  I created the journaling on my computer and printed it onto Very Vanilla card.  To decorate the journaling block, I tore the bottom of a post-it-note and used it to mask the journaling on the Very Vanilla card.  I stamped the Sheet Music background stamp using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then before removing the mask, I used a sponge and Cajun Craze ink to sponge over the stamped image. I stamped the guitar from the Country Livin’ stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and used the Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends to add some colour.  I cut out the guitar and attached it to the journaling panel.  The title is cut from Cajun Craze card using the retired Little Letters Thinlits Dies.

I love how this page turned out and I know that it will always remind me of the joy Ethan’s creations brought to Ron and to Dave.

Bye for now,

Kris
