|My husband's grandmother (second from left) circa 1920
For this layout, I used a piece of 49 and Market paper from their Vintage Remnants collection for the background. I used the bonus sheet located on the backside of the cover sheet from the Collection Pack.
I did some machine embroidery stitching along the edge of the page. Switching direction at the corners made the stitches there a bit messy looking so I covered them with some tiny buttons and some Prills.
The stencilling on the background was done using a Clarity Stencil Brush with ink.
These are the dies I used:
These are the chipboard pieces I used:
- Creative Embellishments
I embossed the chipboard pieces with a couple of different colours of Distress Embossing Powders, using clear ink all over and applying one colour of powder all over. After that was heated and cooled, I applied clear ink with an embossing marker to some parts and embossed with the second colour. The colour of the Lace Border wasn't quite what I wanted so I rubbed some paint overtop to better match the orange flowers.
Here are some more closeups:
Thank you so much for taking a look!
