Grandma and her Father

My grandmother with her father

For this layout I used a piece of 49 and Market paper from their Vintage Remnants collection.

Paper 5 - Vintage Remnants
49 and Market

I also used some of the matching laser cut shapes (the berries and bird) from their Frame Set 2 and Frame Set 3.

These are the dies I used:

Lace Circle Frame
- AliExpress (Estelle's Craft Store)
Beaded Chains Essential Rectangles
- Tattered Lace
Mini Delicate Doilies
- My Favorite Things

The Lace Circle Frame is a smaller version of the Architectural Lace Circle die by Tattered Lace.

As usual, I layered the die-cuts over a darker version to accentuate the edges.

These are the chipboard pieces I used:

Collage Border - Blue Fern Studios
Brick Wall Panel - Dusty Attic

I blobbed some heavy gesso onto the Collage Border to create a lumpy texture.  I then painted it brown using a sponge stippler and rubbed pink paint on the raised areas with my fingertip.  I also rubbed the raised areas with some Rose Gold Metallique Wax by Prima.  

The brick pieces were painted white, sprayed with Walnut Gold Glimmer Mist and then inked around the edges with Chestnut Roan Colorbox Chalk Ink.  

The flowers are a mixture of different brands (Prima, Little Birdie Crafts and Wild Orchid Crafts).

I added some inexpensive jewelry and a metal filigree piece that I bought on ebay.   I rubbed the metal parts with the Rose Gold Metallique Wax as well.

Thank you so much for taking a look!
