Awesome Memories

Here’s another colorized photo: my father with his sisters and younger brother sometime in the mid 1930’s.

I’ve based this design on the May sketch from the Très Jolie Kit Club, turning the photo around but otherwise keeping pretty close to Kim’s design.
Before assembling my page, I chose the flowers that I wanted to use and soaked them in a mug of coffee to give them an aged look. Once I was satisfied with the staining, I put them aside on paper toweling to dry.

I started by lightly stenciling a flourish image in several places around the paper, using one of my favorite Prima masks.

I inked and matted my photo, using several layers of packaging behind each layer to add dimension to my page.

I treated my chipboard pieces (one from the kit, one from my stash) by covering them with Distress spray stain, then applying Metallique waxes once they were completely dry. I like how this gives them a varied sheen.

I pulled the largest flower apart, folded the bottom layers over and tucked them under the photo and over the flourish.

 I started to arrange the rest of the flowers, gluing them down one at a time to make sure that they stayed in place. I added a fussy cut and inked piece on the bottom of the cluster.

I selected some pieces to tuck above the flowers: a resin cameo, a fussy cut small tag and a couple of cardboard die cuts.

I placed the dangle under the string image, adding a flower to the top.

There was a small piece of lace left over from my last layout; I tucked it under the photo and placed a resin cameo on the side.

Another cardboard die cut, this one placed over the “memories” text on the paper, gave me my title.
