Pivo O'Clock - Scrapbooking Tuesday

Hello Friends

Well would you believe, I was having a tidy up in my room, when I came across a photograph of Hubby on our first Christmas trip to Prague?  Should I put it back in a box, (not with all the other photos of the same trip as it would take too long), but in a box with mixed photos?  Or should I scrapbook it?  Well I think you can guess which option I chose, or you wouldn't be seeing a layout below!!

So I started with a sheet of plain cardstock and I took some acrylic paints and various paintbrushes and even a toothbrush and flicked some black and gold paint over the card.  Leaving this to dry I carried on with the rest of the elements.  The swirly piece is half of a shaped page being used as a template, cut out of Kaisercraft and then mounted on a piece of green co-ordinations cardstock and trimmed to about 1/4-1/8th inch. I then took some Technique Tuesday stamps and stamped with Black Soot DI.
The large rectangular piece was made one evening when I had a video clip of Donna Arkle playing with spray inks and a glass of wine on the go!  I created several sheets of sprayed paper and this is one of them.  I did not have any plain white/cream 12x12 at the time so I followed Donna and used the backs of some papers I did not particularly like! I have mounted this on to more of the green cardstock.   The clock is one of my new stamps which I won on the FB CC101 challenge.  Love those TPC Studios stamps!  The rosette was left over from my Christmas Tree projects.

The layered piece was made using a mixture of EK Success punchouts and Tim Holtz Lace die cuts.  The text was cut using my Cricut (not sure what font but if you want to know I can tell you - though there was chocolate involved!).  
The clock is a Tim Holtz of course!  Die cut using a scrap of chipboard, painted and then waxed with Treasure Gold.  A little TH embellishment and the Remember is another TPC Stamp.  The Ironwork stamps are all Technique Tuesday stamps and the large corners were double stamped with Black Soot DI and bronze Distress Stain . 
The top part of the layered square was stamped with Wendy Vecchi stamp with a mixture of TT and TH stamps.  
Look at those glasses - they look huge now but were all the rage back in 2000!!  Tee Hee! 

Hope you like and thanks for popping over.  If there is anything else you want to know please do not hesitate to ask.


PS  Why Pivo O'clock?  In Prague it is always time for a beer!  It is one of our little sayings! As well as "It is 5 o'clock somewhere!" or my favourite "Is it Baileys time?"

We must be serious holics as we say 'its 12 o'clock' somewhere, that's a huge 5 hours behind you lol.

This is lovely! Great layers and shapes - the splayed ribbons holding the word charm look fantastic across the lace - and I love the rosette clock... That's a big old glass of pivo there!!

Such a great effect with the flicks of black and gold on the background! Your hubby looks quite dapper in his "big" glasses, love it! Love the added clocks to this awesome layout! Funny how the colors can be off, but at least purple or burgundy, it looks amazing! Hugs!

Those 'aviator' style glasses were all the rage back then, I love old photo's.
I hope you didn't leave the toothbrush in the bathroom!!! :)
