Children must not interrupt...

...well, they do in my house! Working on that.

Look at these kids-- they look like they've just been told!  I think I'll either keep this or put it in the staff lounge...

(Click each picture for gratuitous texture)


  • Library catalog card base originally inked by mopping up excess DOx on my mat
  • Prima crackle paste used through Tim's Diamonds stencil.  (It's no secret that this crackle paste is not my fave-- just trying to use it up so I can justify buying a different brand!)
  • Next, I wiped white Liquitex gesso over the stenciled parts
  • Then I rubbed some DecoArt Metallic Lustre in Gold Rush over the gesso
  • I used Ranger Glossy Accents on areas where I wanted to add Recollections micro beads (have seen these and always questioned their existence... Saw them last weekend at Tuesday Morning for $2.49 for a 6-pack and thought it was worth a try... new fave! Better than glitter!)
  • The quote was from an old book, adhered with gesso
  • Tim's paper doll kids popped up with 3M dimensional adhesive
I think that's all I did here...

I'd like to share this at the following challenges:
