I am using these 3 sheets, from the Nyhavn Collection,for this project. Because I mainly want the gray, as the background,I did not be doing, as much paper layering. I got my texture through stencils & the DA chipboard.So this is all new to me. I will also be changing all my photos to black & white.To deepen the color of Veterans Ship-BS,I painted on Tattered Angels Indian corn & rubbed in some pebbles chalk...I inked all the edges of the paper using a mixture of charcoal & grey mist,I used a brush to do this....
Here are some close ups of detail....
For the red used on the chipboard I used my wall paint,plus I applied a coat of clear crackle varnish. I used LuminArt' (Jasper Red)H20 over the crackle on the chipboard. The red was still a bit to bright,so I toned with wintermist gray H20,once the red had dried. I used this on all the chipboard in these LO's....I also inked the edges of the chipboard using a ink pad..I used distressed brushed pewter stain,paint & crackle on the rest of the chipboard.  I also went through all of my flowers,that were to bright for the Maja Collections & dipped them into all the paint colors, that I used in the kitchen (I watered down the paint)
On this LO,I decided to play with a few stamps.....



I also did some stencil work using TCW,Art is...






Here is a photo of our kitchen,showing the color of the kitchen....
A before photo of the kitchen wall,I felt there was way to much going on, on that wall,with all the different colors....All of these LO's are moved to other areas of the house,as I have about 160 shadow boxes trough out our home. I started this about 8 years ago, & goggled the shadow boxes,they are still out there MCS Industries INC shadow boxes. You will notice that I left space on my outside edges,you need to do this so that they fit into the box. 

Photos of the updated kitchen wall,it really does look much better....
Now for some of the LO's I did for the wall, that is of family...
This is a photo of my middle & youngest son...
