Hello, since using family photos in my vintage journal I realised I hadn't used one of my Mum, I have some lovely photos of her as a young girl - by the date on the back she is 21 in this one.
I gessoed the page before adding the DecoArt Crackle paste through the Doily and Rose stencils. Next, a watered down wash of PaperArtsy Concrete, then came some ink blending with Tattered rose, Frayed burlap and Vintage photo, before edging with Distress Crayons and rubbing back with a wet finger! There's also some background stamping in Frayed Burlap. I reapplied the rose stencil and coloured the rose with DIs, before finally adding the cut apart words from a TH stamp.
I am going to enter this over at Art Journal Journey, where Elizabeth and Bluebeard have chosen the theme of Count Your Blessings - well, I count my blessings for my Mother's love.
We've got thick cloud and very breezy weather today, feels very Autumnal - think I want some sunshine back!
Have a great weekend
