FACES

The inspiration for this layout is an old photo I found. I would love to know who they are & why we have the photo. When did they come to the United States? What did they do to earn a living? In the big scheme of things it is not that long ago... they are not just Faces!
The papers used are made by KaiserCraft from the Elegance line. They are part of the Premier kit made by the Swirlydoos kit club. I punched & re punched the edges to make it appear to be tattered lace. All distressing was done with 2 inks- Distress walnut stain & Distress aged mahogany.
The Maya Road flourishes were inked with Tim Holtz Rum Raisin alcohol ink. The bird was printed on cards stock, hand cut & distressed. I placed it on the a flourish to give it sort of a bird on branch appearance. The bird from Lunagirl Images. A wonderful site!!!
The silk Prima flowers were lightly distressed. I then added flower layers that I made with my Big Shot using papers in the layout. All bloom edges were inked lightly. I then added them to the flourishes in the pattern paper to give them a cluster feel! Fired Brick Stickles were used to highlight & Ranger gold Liquid Pearls were used as flower centers.

BasicGrey letters were inked with the Ranger rum raisin alcohol ink. I also added droplets of the gold Liquid Pearls in the layout to highlight. I have been wanting to scrap this photo for some time & this kit worked beautifully! Thanks so much for taking a look!

Hi Lynn! When I'm finally able to do some scrapbooking again, would you mind terribly if I scraplift this layout? I found 4 boxes of very old pictures in my grandmother's apartment and I'm going to makes copies of a lot of them and make an album for her (or for my family members depending on how fast I can get it done.) Can you believe she still has her graduation announcement from 1939?? I'm simply amazed. Anyway, I love this layout and it makes me want to just take a day for myself and do some layouts with some of her pics so she can see what I've started with her treasures. :) Thanks!!!
