Guest DT Celina Matthews: Father & Son

To celebrate Father's Day this June (19th), I wanted to create a page of my husband with our son. My hubby is such a wonderful dad and although our son is our third child, there is a special bond between them. Maybe it's because he's our only son or maybe it's because he is my husband's namesake, but whatever the reason, they are very close.

When I saw this Webster's Pages Time of My Life paper from the Ladies & Gents Collection, I knew it would be perfect for this project. I then chose a coordinating paper (Webster's Pages Framed Beauty) to go along with it. The title letters are from my stash, which I colored with Lettuce Alcohol Ink.

I fussy cut the clocks from the paper and glued it over the second paper then added the rest of the Time paper to the other side.

That side of the paper is inked using various masks by Tattered Angels and Tim Holtz, and Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass. I then stamped clocks using various stamps from my stash and Distress Inks in Peeled Paint, Vintage Photo, and Broken glass. The turquoise and green trims are from Webster's Pages as are the flowers, which I misted using homemade mist of water, Distress Ink re-inkers in Broken China and Antique Linen, and perfect pearl powders. The sparkler stones are from Webster's as well. I then finished up the page with some faux stitching with a Sharpie marker.

More of Celina's work can be seen here on her blog!
