Camille (a cousin of my paternal grandfather)

For this layout I used some Riddersholm design papers and a piece of Blue Fern Studios paper.

I did a bit of stencilling with molding paste on the upper right and lower left corners. To make the stencilling stand out a bit more,  I sprinkled the molding paste with white embossing powder while the paste was still wet and then heat set it.

Prima - Floral Petites

These are the dies I used:

Meadow Leaves

These are the chipboard pieces I used:

Dusty Attic - Christmas Tree #2
Dusty Attic - Mini Christmas Trees
Dusty Attic - Decorative Scroll #2
Dusty Attic - Morrocan Border

For the Christmas Trees and Morrocan Border, I heat-embossed them with Brushed Corduroy Distress Embossing Powder.  I didn't like how flat the Christmas Trees looked so I added small blobs of super heavy gesso and sprinkled more embossing powder on top.  Some of the white gesso bubbled up as I heated them so I inked over them again and did another layer of the embossing powder.  I then inked around the edges with Colorbox Chalk ink in Fawn.

For the Decorative Scroll #2, I painted the pieces and applied Tim Holtz Distress Collage Medium - Crazing.  When that was dry I brushed them with brown ink and wiped off the excess.

The flowers are by 49 and Market from their Vintage Shades collection in the Sage and Ecru colours.

Thank you so much for taking a look!

  1. Really great job giving this layout a rustic, yet feminine feel, to match the vintage photo! Love the way the trees turned out!
