I’m back from a warm and relaxing Spring Break vacation and am excited to get back into my studio! Today I thought I would share my “March” Place in Time Graphic 45 vintage layout and a video featuring a technique for making watercolour flowers using Distress Markers.
My mother turns 85 in November, and I have decided to surprise her with a 12 x 12 photo album. I’m using Graphic 45 “Place in Time” collection and duplicating photos from her vintage scrapbooks. Mostly they are pictures of herself, friends and family around 1954 and 1955.
I have already posted the January and February layouts, and I thought I’d share the album as I work on it. So, here is March….
I was so excited to find these photos of my mother at a St. Patrick’s Day party! What luck! Her roommate was Irish, so I can see why they had a party.
The technique featured on this layout is the watercolour flowers…
|The flowers are cut with Spellbinders (Donna Salazar) “Rose Creations” die set|
I made a video tutorial that shows how you can make these flowers, which I am thinking look like pansies or violets…either way they’re purple flowers that match the floral images on the paper.

I hope to be making more video tutorials in the future, so if you would like to “stay tuned” then click SUBSCRIBE while you are watching.
I hope Winter is coming to an end wherever you live and that Spring weather has arrived!
