Another Swirlydoos page

I had so much fun making the two masculine pages for reveal day using the June "Looking Glass" Kit. I just has to do another!! So, here it is.............

Tribute
This is my grandfather on my mother's side. The picture was taken in the early1940's when he served in the United States Army. Sadly, I never got to meet him. He passed away before I was born.

For the Dusty Attic hinge chippy I first inked with Distress Ink and misted with Gold Perfect Pearls. Once that was dry I applied crackle. When the crackle was dry, using the tip of my scissors, I scraped off some of crackle layer. 

This is just a close-up of all the layering and tucking. I used a tip from a fellow Swirlydoos Designers, Camilla, to use foam dots in between layers. This makes the tucking easier.

Thanks for stopping by!!!!
