My husband's grandmother

For this layout of my husband's grandmother I used a piece of paper from Prima's Timeless Memories collection.

Timeless Memories - Forever

I did some stencilling with molding paste mixed with a bit of cream coloured paint on the background, then did a wash of diluted brown ink over the stencilled areas.

I also did some random stamping with brown ink.

Kaisercraft texture stamp - Script

Kaisercraft texture stamp - Grid

The burlap mat was glued onto a piece of plain chipboard so it would stay flat overlapping the wood-cut doilies and foam tape was used underneath to level it.  I also put a piece of plain chipboard under the photo before gluing it to the burlap mat to add more dimension and so it would stay smooth over the rough texture.

I tucked little pieces of natural-coloured reindeer moss under some of the other embellishments.

The scrolls around the photo are Wycinanka chipboard.

Thanks for looking!


  1. Once again, a very beautifully designed vintage page! I really love the trim around the layout and that reindeer moss is awesome! You really know how to bring old photos to life! Love the angled photo, by the way! Great job Tracy!

  2. Love how you did the background with the stenciling, then the ink wash and stamping, it creates a beautiful depth! The whole layout is so dreamy and elegant, yet also a bit rustic! Stunning, as always!

  3. Oh man, so much I love about this! I love that you matted the photo with burlap, I love the script stamp you used, and the chipboard corners are awesome!! Thanks!!
