Bjorg and Her Children

My great-grandmother with her children

For this layout I used a piece of 49 and Market paper for the background.

Tattered Flourish - Tattered Garden
49 and Market

I used a couple more pieces of 49 and Market paper for the purple die-cuts and the layer under the ripped edges of the background paper.

Fly Away - Scents of Nature
49 and Market
Tattered Path - Tattered Garden
49 and Market

I did some stencilling on the background using Dusty Concord Distress Ink and a Clarity stencil brush.

Layered Wallpaper 6"x 6"
The Crafter's Workshop

These are the dies I used:

Japanese Garden Lace Oval
Cheery Lynn Designs
Detailed Scallops
Doily Edge Essential Rectangles
Tattered Lace
Vintage Lace Border
ArtScrap Store (AliExpress)
Small Snowflake Doily

As usual I layered all the die-cuts over a darker version and offset the layers to accentuate the edges.

Under the photo I strung some cylindrical and round beads on a piece of wire and rubbed them with Prima Metallique Wax in the Heather Hills colour.  

I also rubbed the Heather Hills wax on the other metal embellishments.

The flowers are a mixture of Prima (Rose Quartz - Calcutta) and 49 and Market.  The leaves are from a couple of sets of Tattered Garden Laser Cut Shapes by 49 and Market.

Thank you so much for taking a look!


  1. This is absolutely gorgeous, Tracy! I love how you used that wax on the embellishments-I'm going to have to look around for it! Also love those tiny groups of prills on the page--they really add something extra! I really admire your vintage scrapping style!

  2. I had to come over to your blog for some close up looks! This is just beautiful, Tracy! You know that purple is my fave color and it's unusual to see you use it, but I must say that you did a fabulous creation here! The details are marvelous! I LOVE how you used the prills to form bead-like embellishments. Outstanding! One of my faves of yours for sure!

  3. This is my favorite and what got my attention in the first place!

  4. Tracy, I am your cousin... my grandpa was Bjorg's younger brother John. I googled Bjarni Thorsteinson photography and it took me to you. I imagine since you have posted these beautiful pictures that he took that you might be into genealogy. I am as well. Feel free to email me if you want to connect.
