|My Icelandic great-great grandparents Jon and Guðrún with their children
(my great-grandmother Bjorg is standing center back)
The photo was taken around 1896 by my great-grandfather, Bjarni.
For this layout I used some very old TPC Studio papers from their Ancestral collection.
I punched the outer edge of the background paper and glued some of the leftover punched pieces along the top and upper sides of the photo to make a bit of a frame.
I also did some machine embroidery stitching on the background paper.
These are the punch and dies I used:
This is the chipboard set I used:
|Dusty Attic - Elegant Swirls #3
I painted the chipboard pieces a rusty coloured brown and then applied a coat of Viva Decor Ferro paint in Irongold.
The cream-coloured flowers are by 49 and Market from their Vintage Shades collection in the Ecru colour.
Thank you so much for taking a look!
