My Grandma’s House

The colors, patterns and images in the August kit have a warm, almost antique-like feel to them and I thought it would match the story I had to tell perfectly.

I began with the scalloped patterned paper background and doodled around the scallops with white and black pens.  I then cut some doilies from white cardstock using a metal die that I had.  Doilies just remind me of “grandma”.  I stitched around some holes in the doily with some lavender embroidery thread for some more texture.

Next, I embellished with some chipboard, fussy cut papers, and stickers in clusters around the photo and bottom left corner of the page.

Finally, I added a few splatters of pink and gold mist, my journaling, and date.

While this photo isn’t old, the house in it is, and this kit helped me to document some of those old memories.  Do you have any older photos or stories that would work well with this kit?

Thanks for stopping by today!
