|My grandfather George when he was little|
For this layout I used some old My Mind's Eye papers from their Lost & Found and Lost & Found 3 collections as well as some plain pieces from their Signature Life collection.
These are the punch and dies I used:
As usual, I layered each die-cut over a darker version, offsetting them slightly to accentuate the edges.
For the chipboard pieces, I painted them dark brown, applied a white crackle paint and then rubbed them with Iced Spruce Distress Ink (wiping off the excess). I then applied some Fawn chalk ink around the edges.

The nameplate and teddy bear were made with Sculpey Ultra Light and molds and then painted. I used a set of alphabet stamps to do the name on the nameplate. The stamping was a little too faded looking so I went over it with a darker marker to add dimension.
I applied a pale aqua watercolour randomly around the center and edges of the layout as well as inking randomly with the Fawn chalk ink.
The sage-coloured flowers are by 49 and Market from their Vintage Shades collection.
