I have been working on my Grandkids scrapbooks. Most of the layouts are pictures of them and their busy lives but every once and a while I like to throw in some keepsakes. This is one of them...a picture of my Mother.
IRL it looks more like a painting than just a picture.
I started out by double matting my picture. Then, in one corner, I glued down 3 flowers, some brown leaves (punched), some rust colored fiber/yarn stuff (sorry, don't know what it's called), and then a "fork bow" with some rust colored ribbon. You can learn more about the bow HERE. I made a banner by punching out 4 squares and then hand cutting them. I inked the edges, added lettering ("June", my Mom's name), then punched 2 holes in each piece, weaved some brown twine through them and tied a bow at each end.
On the other side, I printed out my Mom's full name and birth date on this paper I found at the Discount store the other day. It is called Computer Grafix- Printable Transparent Plastic Sheets with adhesive backing. Wonderful stuff! I can make my own stickers now.
I would like to enter:
