New home scrapbook page

newHome1990

8″ x 8″ is a new size for me to work with so this is my first page for Sue’s grown ups challenge over on CBC. Sue gives a recipe and measurements to make it nice and easy and I just added the number 36. My theme for this scrapbook are some of the before and after photos when we had the builders in way back when we first bought our house in 1990.
My layout uses Cosmo cricket card, small letters and numbers, grunge board New Home letters painted in crimson acrylic paint, a couple of blooms, punched leaves, embellishment. The number 36 is a square of card with card board numbers stuck to it. I covered the front with aluminium tape and I used an embossing tool to press the foil close to the numbers. I then scribbled on top then rubbed black acrylic paint over it then crimson. I wiped most of the paint off leaving little bits on to highlight the numbers and scribbles.
