I decided to use the Canadian Scrapbooker May Sketchy challenge to design the June “Place in Time” Graphic 45 layout for my Mother’s vintage album.
I know…a little out of order. Today I’m sharing the April and June layouts, but the May page is coming later.
Here is Sue Syke‘s wonderful sketch…
I created a double layout by flipping the sketch for the right page….
I just love these photos from my mom’s cousin’s wedding. They are held in place with white photo corners from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.
Here are some close-ups…
Isn’t that pearl centre on this flower gorgeous? It is a vintage clip-on earring from my mother, but I cut the backing off.
|I used a Prima stencil and Golden Molding Paste with Glitter|
I made a video showing details of this June layout and a tutorial with this mixed media technique. Click HERE to watch this video on YouTube.
Here is my belated April layout…
These are pics of my mom and her roommate visiting their friends on Easter who had young children. If you look closely, you can see the kids holding Easter baskets.
The bling flourishes and butterflies are Prima (left over from my ScrapThat! May kit).
|The chipboard fence is Twiddleybitz|
The windows are cut from a piece of scrap white cardboard, and the bunny is cut from Glitter paper. The white stitching is “faux”…made with a white pen and paper piercer. Sneaky!
Luckily, my mom doesn’t use a computer or follow my blog…otherwise the secret would be out on this album. I love seeing how it’s coming together, and I hope you do too!
I also hope you join in the Sketchy Challenge over at Canadian Scrapbooker….click HERE to visit their online forum.
