The Old Barn

Here's my latest layout...

The photo is a little dark and may be hard for you to see.  Sorry about that.  It's a photo I did in Sepia tone of the old barn on my Grandparents land.  They have both passed and I have so many memories of this old barn from my childhood. 

I FINALLY got off my stash of Dusty Attic Chippies and used 2 of them on this layout.  I painted them with Folk Art Green Metallic paint, added some green stickles then added clear embossing powder and used my heat gun on the top.  The 2 birds I painted with a darker brown and put a dot of stickles for their eyes.   

I used a prima flower and Martha Stewart punch.  The butterflies and double layers and 3D.  I like this element.  The green flourishes are by Forever in Time.  I but them up and made my own shapes. 

The bottom piece with the flourishes was on a patterned sheet by My Mind's Eye and I cut it up to take just the flourish to the page.  I also added some stickles on this piece and put it on dimensionals to have it cover the end of the Dusty Attic piece. 

The clock is from a patterned paper piece that I got from a large stack I bought several years ago.  I think I purchased it at Michaels.  I also cut out the letters from the same stack that were scattered on a 12X12 piece of paper. 

The top note shape is actually from the Teresa Collins Halloween die cuts and I just covered up the Halloween message.  It worked well for what I wanted to do on this page. 

Here's a couple close ups...
