Great Aunt Ada

My great-aunt Ada

Well, it's been a while but I finally have another finished page to share.

For this layout I used papers from the Old Lace collection by Stamperia.

I glued some Prima mica flakes in Mulberry and Prills (Express-o-Yourself) onto the background using Artquest's Perfect Paper Adhesive.

I layered all the die-cuts over a black copy and offset them slightly to accentuate the edges.

These are the dies and punch I used:

Cheery Lynn Designs
Horizon Rectangle
Floral Assortment
EK Success
Scalloped Scallop
Timeless Rectangles
Tutti Designs
Leaves Corner
Poppy Stamps
Burnished Corner

Standard Circles LG
Petite Scalloped Circles LG

These are the chipboard pieces I used:

Blue Fern Studios
Blue Fern Flourish - small
Creative Embellishments
Autumn Leaves
Creative Embellishments
Window Shutters

I embossed the flourish with Ranger Embossing Antiquities in California Stucco using clear ink.

I embossed the Window Shutter pieces and the timepiece with Stampendous embossing tinsel in Vintage Mahogany.  The colour was a bit too dark against the rest of the layout so I rubbed the pieces with Prima Metallique wax in Rose Gold.

I painted the leaves brown and then rubbed them lightly with more of the Rose Gold wax.  I also rubbed this wax over most of the other embellishments.

Thank you so much for taking a look!


  1. Hey! Look at this! I have been praying for YOU! Thank God! And look at this awesome layout. Yeah! So Pretty! So nice to see you at it again! I screamed when I saw the email in my in-box and my husband said "What's wrong?" I told him everything was alright again! Anyway, Tracy I have a question I want to ask you of a private nature i wonder if you could email me directly? Or how might that occur? I didn't want to put my email on here but how can I do this? Thanks, Denise

    1. Thanks Denise! You could message me using google hangouts again. I'll send you a message that way with my email address so you can use that if you prefer.
