Helga and Her Boys

My paternal grandmother and her four sons (my father is standing at the back on the right)

For this layout I used papers from Prima's Salvage District collections.

I ripped some corrugated paper, inked the edges, sprayed it lightly with some Walnut Gold Glimmer Mist and tucked it underneath the ripped edge of the paper to add some texture.

These are the dies I used:

Floral Assortment
Tattered Lace
Ornate Leaves

The clay piece under the photo was made with Sculpey Ultra Light and a mold.  I sealed it twith matte medium, brushed it with Prima's Parthenay and Antoinette Pink Artisan Powders and sprayed it with Lindy's Stamp Gang Whale Watch Blue.

Prima Iron Orchid Designs
Baroque 4

The chipboard pieces on the upper left and lower right corners were painted brown.  I applied Picket Fence Distress Crackle Paint, let it dry and brushed them with the Parthenay Artisan Powder, wiping off the excess.

Dusty Attic
Art Deco Frame Set

Most of the flowers are from Prima's Salvage District collection.

Thank you so much for taking a look!


  1. Lovely vintage layout! LSG Whale Watch Blue is one of my most faves - hope they never retire that one! It looks great on the Prima mold. The flower clusters are beautiful.

  2. Classical and elegant styling for this page. The monochromatic neutrals are perfect for the vintage style and I especially love the crackle treatment of the chipboard corners.
