Darling Scrapbook Layout

Hi Lovelies

Today I have a scrapbook layout to share with you all which I created while at my local Crop a couple of weeks ago.

This layout is of my beautiful Nan and the photograph which I used is of her when she was in her late teens early 20's, this lady is my world not just my Nan but like a Mum to me.

For this layout I used some elements from the Vintage Charm Kit along with some extra beautiful papers which I purchased from Thompsons Craft Supplies. I also added some ephemera from my own stash.

This layout took me a while as I played around with where everything was going for some time until I was completely satisfied and then I took a picture of it so I would remember where everything went as I stuck each individual piece down.

As you can see on this layout I have included lace, pearls, cheesecloth, wood veneer along with the beautiful ephemera pieces from the kit and my own stash. I added the sewing machine, scissors, ruler, button and spool to the layout as my Nan worked in textiles for many years, she loves flowers and butterflies so this layout really is her.

Once everything as stuck down I finished it off by doing some antique gold ink splatters which I also used as a base behind the photograph which you can see peeking out at the top and on one of the sides.

I have decided that this piece is going to be framed instead of just going into an album.

I hope you have Enjoyed seeing this layout and it has inspired you
