Have you every been to the badlands?  If not it is a must visit, I find rock truely beautiful and was the inspiration for this layout.  The colors and rust for 13 arts Challenge worked perfectly.

The whole background pages have the badlands drawn, most get covered but you get the idea.

Created new chipboard of broke down and abandoned motel and car.  The key to making them look real is adding some rust color paint, sand and ink.

This is also a new designs- tow truck and gas island.  For the tow truck I added patina and stormy blue paint also with rust paint.  The pieces of this also are designed to not fit tightly together so it looks more like a clunker.

This is my favorite part of the layout- the number blocks!

Vacancy- 3.25"x4" $2.50

Tow Truck 7.25"x3.5" $9.95

Abandoned 4.75"x2" $3.95

Number Blocks
0.5" to 2" $8.95

Gas Island 2.5"x6.5" $4.50

Country Christmas Cards

So I rarely scrap Christmas (I don't like Christmas Colors) and I rarely (ie never) make cards but i got inspired by Prima's Country Christmas Paper and Alberta countryside.  Here is a set of 8 all which feature farm lifestyle chipboard designed by myself.  Some of the pieces are layered (trucks) to achieve details and dimension.  Enjoy!  Check out The 12 Months of Christmas Link Up challenge.

Classic red hip roof barn.

1956 ford (yes exactly a 1956 ford designed for my husband)

This one is Chev designed for me I love a Chevy but am not as picky about year.

Ironic Alberta Wheat Pool Elevators

Grainers in the field

Mailboxed lined up on the side of a gravel road

I believe this one is another Ford, if a person wanted you could add a small wreath and hang on the hood.

John Deere 60 designed for my dad, the tractor he owed before we moved off the farm.

I start by painting the layers of design, the color is dictated by the section of truck.  I used distress paint I like the colors and it is a thin paint that is opaque and covers completely.

Once paint is completely dry (I like to dry overnight) I sand then ink with distress ink.  The ink settles into the sand portion, highlights the edges and make it look old and worn.

Start to glue layers together.  The pieces are all designed to fit tightly together and show off body lines of vehicle.

Top layer, now the details and body lines are noticable it looks like a complete truck and more realistic.

Here is the complete set of Country Christmas chipboard available on my etsy store BoozyBear

More Camping Inspirations

another camping layout this week, using Lindy's Sprays and magicals, distress paint, gold embossing powder and 7 dots Studio paper.  And of course Boozybear chipboard and stencils.

I created the background with Lindy's autumn Maple Crimson, Ponderosa Pine Olive, and Antique Bronze.  I was trying to pull the colors from the lilipads in the photos.

The flourish was made with a stencil and gold embossing powder, I wanted the fancy flourish to contrast with rustic wetland chipboard.

 Added some yellow micro beads and green distress embossing powder  around pier posts, give it that mossy abandoned feel.

Outline around circle paper embellishment with black charcoal to add some depth.

Happy scrapping
