and this is my entry
I have used the Websters Pages 'Country Estate' collection for this LO. This is such a pretty collection of papers & stickers (A big thankyou to my friend Nelle for giving me this paper pack collection as a bday gift!!)
The background paper is Kaisercraft & the script paper is Grace Taylor. I have inked & distressed the edges of the script paper with versa ink 'pinecone'. The adore tag is by Tim Holtz, the white flourish is by Pink Paislee, the stickers & alphas are Websters Pages 'Country Estate' & the envelope is by Maya Road. I have also used a doily in the background to try & recreate the circle in the sketch.
I absolutely adore this photo of Hunter & Kayla. It was taken in March when they were Flower Girl & Page Boy at their Aunties wedding. They looked so gorgeous on the day! I used the oppertunity to describe some feelings I had on the day through the typed journalling
Another page I have finished recently is 'Soar'
Here is a close up of the journalling
To create a worn, distressed look on the background page & sprayed the paper with water & scrunched the paper into a ball. I then smoothed it out gently trying to keep all the creases & let it dry.
To create the lace blooms I cut a small length of lace & sewed a small slip stich along the top, the I pulled the thread which causes the lace to bunch up. I then sewed the 2 ends together & stuck the button in the middle.
This is my first LO I have done using heritage photos. I have just raided Nan's photo albums & have got some lovely photos to scrap. Nan has photos going back a couple of generations & has been very active in mapping our family tree which is a huge help to me for future scrapping!!
Just a quick congratulations to the winners of the previous sketch at OUAS. There were some beautiful winners. I was very happy to see my pal Vicky have her LO featured again. WTG!!
Thanks for looking!
