Down our Road - Neil Walker


It's the weekend.....yay.....and it's Bank Holiday
weekend here too which means another day off for a lot
of people!  It also means, probably, a weekend of rain
in typical British fashion.  We wouldn't expect anything else!!

Ok, so if you have nothing on and it's raining, don't 
forget The Craft Barn is open 
Saturday 9.30 - 5 pm
Sunday and Monday 10 - 4 pm 
Why not pop in and do some crafty shopping!

Alright, today is our last day of Down our Road
 and Neil has an absolutely stunning project for you! 
Every time I look at this, I see something I hadn't noticed

Neil says....

Down our road, around the corner and up the country for about 
5 hours is my little slice of paradise..........

Take one sheet of  the paper and trim out the windows of the 
door and the top, bottom and centre of the door to create 
an opening.  Add your chosen photo.

Take a second sheet of the paper and cut out the pieces
 as seen.  Fix the larger piece to the matching area on
 the first sheet using 3d foam tape or pads. Leave
 the narrow strip to one side.

Trim a third sheet as seen. Set the main image to one side as
 it is not required.

Add the narrow corner strip to the top of the page with 3d
 foam tape or pads as before and add the narrow strip from
 the previous cut to the top of this. This gives you a lovely
 dimensional page.

Use the left over paper from the "fussy cut" sheet to die cut a
 few medium and small flowers from the Tattered Florals die. 
 Assemble and make flowers by attaching them in groups with
 a small brad and using water to shape to create co-ordinating
 flowers. Attach 3 to the layout. A more detailed tutorial
 on creating this style of flower can be found here 

Cut a small tag with the Mixed Media die. Stamp the label
 stamp onto this. Give a pale wash of ink or paint to
 add a hint of colour. Tie some ribbon onto it and add to
 the page obscuring the writing on the sign and tucking
 the edge behind the bird. Use Liquid Pearls to add a small
 heart to the tag.

Add further highlights to the page with Liquid Pearls to the birds 
and the page to finish.

So what do you beautiful is that??
So colourful, I love it, thank you Neil.

Here is the list of products used if you want to 
have a go.....

Another week over, enjoy your Bank Holiday weekend if you
 are in the UK, if not, sorry I guess you are back to work as
 usual on Monday!

I shall be back tomorrow with the new Weekly Challenge
so if you haven't entered yet then you best be quick!
And there is only one more week for your entry for
 the Calendar Challenge.
