Artz de Scrap Altered Board - Welcome to My Room!


I've had this Kaiser train album for months now, intending to make an album for my son. Of course, like the 101 things I've been planning to scrap, I never got around to doing it. Hence, when we were challenged in Artz de Scrap to alter a Kaiser Board (and since I didn't have any such board), I merely used the board album. It ended up being my son's wall decor.

I separated the album to make 4 trains, crackle painted the top parts of the trains, then adhered pps for the bottom part. I drilled 2 holes on the front ends of the train to match 2 of the 4 holes at the end of each train, then attached wires to connect them.

For the train wheels, I used the All About Scrapbooking's craftwire's plastic container. With 8 of them, they made perfect wheels after a little dab of alcohol ink!

Materials: Kaiser Train Album, Ranger Tim Holtz' Distress Crackle Paint (Aged Mahogany, Shabby Shutters, Brushed Corduroy, Tattered Rose), Inque Boutique 60514 Memoirs pps, Carolina's lace, miscellaneous ribbon scraps, Provocraft Alphaletterz Brush Express Seaside & Tweedle Plain, Ranger Adirondack Alcohol Inks (slate, pitch black, silver mixative), Pebeo Pearl Touch azure.

Some may feel squeamish about eating it, but rabbit has a fan base that grows as cooks discover how easy they are to raise — and how good the meat tastes.
