Scrapbook Layout Teddy Bear Flair

Clilck on Photo to see a larger Resolution

My scrapbook page, is of my darling grandson, who was trying to save his teddy bear from " getting a needle"..If you look closely you can see the thread hanging, grandma was attempting to mend the bear. This is what I "LOVE" about scrapbooking and capturing that moment.
I chose the ideal Patterned Paper for my photo, a georgous line, from Prima Marketing Inc.: Pastiche Collection -(Love Letter). I am finding the new Prima paper lines simply irresistible.
The paper background I created around the photo and matching strips along the bottom, are my attempts to create Faux Distress paper. My morphed creation, was a perfect match for this picture and paper. This technique conveyed a warm element on my layout.
I distressed the creamy colored cardstock with Tim Holtz inks, crumpled and sprayed water- repeating these steps, until I was happy with the textured appearance. At the end of this process, I sprayed Tattered Angels Glimmermist, Iridescent Gold, to give a warm and blended look to the finished Faux Distress Technique.
The Gears are dicuts from the Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations line: Gadget Gears. I cut the gears from my old worn pizza box the top thin layer... that I use for spraying my pieces with glimmer mist...I painted the gears with Tim Holtz Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint: Broken China and Crackle Rock Candy. The corrugated effect of the cardboard combined with the overspray of glimmer mists and mingling the Crackle paint effect; were the perfect mediums for these die-cut gears...I layered the Gears dies with more Cardstock to give the impression of Faux Chipboard, a method from Techique Junkies April 2007 Newsletter. Oh it is fun to play and experiment. I love this craft.
