Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout that showcase my maternal grandfather, Nicolas, and his younger brother, Lucien. I think that the photo was taken around 1928.
I began my background with a thin layer of Gesso. Then with a brayer, I applied some Silks. When dry, I added some white crackle paste with a stencil.
The papers under the photo were crumpled and inked to age them.
I die cut the leaves in the same papers from the Vintage Autumn Basic collection.
I finished my layout with some random stamping et some glitters.
