This seems to be my month for do-overs with some of my old family photos; the Delicate Kit from Swirlydoos, featuring Lemoncraft's Gossamer Blue collection, full of blues and coppers made me want to take out these images and scrap them again.
This is a studio portrait of my Great-Grandparents, Elisa and Augustus Heinick, who immigrated from Hamburg, Germany in 1887, along with the eldest of what would be nine children. Great-Aunt Elsa is seated on her mother's lap and Great-Uncle Augustave is next to her. Behind them is my Grandmother, Johanna Marie.

I used the last of my full sheets from the Lemoncraft Gossamer Blue collection - #2 - as the base and a few scraps from earlier pages under my photo.
Also included this month was a sheet of Core'dinations Glitter Silk in Copper Shimmer, which I used to cut a bit of frame using the Spellbinders' Blooming Collections Frame die.
The title was cut from thin chipboard with my Cameo machine and primed with gesso, then colored with a thick coat of Hot Cocoa Liquid Pearls.

I used a bit of the Lemoncraft trim and Mark Richard nail-head stickers to embellish the bottom of the photo. For my flower cluster, I dug into my stash and found these beauties from Prima's Bella collection. I tucked some pretty leaves that I cut using several of my favorite dies: Rose Leaf by Magnolia and Garden Greens by Sizzix.

The stone pillar going down the side of the photo is actually Ice Resin cast in an IOD Mould - Baroque #6. I gave it a good coat of black gesso and put it aside for a few hours. When it was completely dry, I went over it with chalkboard paint using a fan brush to make sure that this would be a light coating and that a lot of the black would show through.

I've gotten a lot done with this  kit - five layouts, but I still have plenty left to create a few cards and tags. I'll be back soon with some of these; meantime, I want to thank you again for stopping by!
