I had a bit of fun trying to take a photo of this page ! As you can see the net curtain won!!
This is actually layout number 4, but I can't show number 3 until my sister's birthday on 5th July as the layout is directly connected to her birthday card.
This album I am making is all about my favourite photographs. This particular photo was taken on 24th October 2009, when my sister lived at Shortflatt Farm (a farmhouse I will be using in a future layout & one you have seen before). The hens thought it was actually their house & it amused me to see them strutting around the kitchen watching what Tracy was doing.
To make my page, I took some pale green bazzill cardstock & I used a tree embossing folder to create the tree design on the left, rubbing over the design firmly with a punch. I used Jillibean Soup Vegetable Broth paper to support my picture. Once this was in place I stamped the cockerel & the two hens from my stamp set Poultry Pantry by T J Designs. I stamped a ticket from the same set onto scrap card & coloured with Frayed Burlap distress ink. The word Hen in the title is made from Tim Holtz Typeset alphas in kraft & over inked with Frayed Burlap. The word House was Making Memories Great Escape Bamboo Alphas. I stamped chicken wire & the Hen Party Post image directly onto the page. I also used a grass stamp from a See D's set. Finally I coloured the hens using copper & bronze pearl powders which gave them a smudgy, oil painted look. I didn't add journalling I felt the photo & title said it all.
