Circa 1909

Hello Sweeties

Today, I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new family photo taken around 1909, I guess, in view of the age of my paternal grand-father and his two sisters.


I began my background with watered Gesso, Graphite Paste that I added with a stencil and some Twinkling H2O…


… and to finish some random stamping with two inks.


I dry brushed the flowers with white Gesso in order to give them a faded look.


I painted the chipboards with several colors of Twinkling H2Os before covering them with a clear crackle paste.


And to finish, I added some Glass Glitters and beads.

Hello, I’m Pascale B. from France.
Since I began to scrap, flowers are part of my layouts, and I gradually started to use mixed media as well. I don’t know how to define my style, perhaps something like free vintage shabby style could be a good definition.

    So lovely. My father was born in 1909, and I am going to buy this kit to scrap some of his childhood photos. Thank you for the inspiration!
