A good friend of mine asked me to make a gift certificate for her to give to her parents. She bought them a trip to Norway to take them back from the country. Take then back to their heritage and to see the culture. We had a nice get together, drank some wine, had reclette dinner and got to work.
I started with the paper. Added the texture with the Distressed Patterns Stencil. One of my favourite ones. I wanted to add some texture to the chipboards and added a colour to the Travel Corner and the Travel Adventure word set then applied a thick layer of crackle glaze over the top. I love the feel that effect give the chipboard.
I did make a short video of the creative process
Using vintage Norwegian Paper, and other layers of paper, I added flower clusters and little travel trinkets to the piece to help get the feel of the project.
Here are a few close-ups.
Here is the box the certificate goes into I did the same layering with old Norwegian paper and cut-outs from the paper collection.
I use the paper to help tell the story of the project.
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you enjoy the project.
