Kerry-Jean uses her Great Aunt on a Layout

Hello Bloggers

Kerry-Jean shows us her latest LO using her Correspondence Collection:

'I found a lovely old photo of my great aunt (my paternal grandmother's sister) and thought it would go perfectly with the Meg's Garden new paper collection I created called "Correspondence". I wanted to create a collection with vintage paper and old script handwriting and was able to find some photographed textures by Evelyn Flint that I played with digitally to get the finished look I wanted. Meg's Garden also has some fantastic flowers and charms I wanted to use and this was the perfect opportunity.'

The flowers I have used are the Oatmeal Colour Flower and the Ivory Heirloom 6.5cm and then the beautiful charms from Finnabair trinkets from Prima   for the leaves.  I also popped a Tim Holtz Pen Nib in there as well. There is some lace I had lying around behind the photo and the Sage Burlap 38cm worked really well. I just had to finish things off with the grey Vintage brad  on top of the metal embellishment.

A very gorgeous vintage LO - well done Kerry-Jean.  Love the layering you have done & the different textures you have chosen are amazing. The lace, burlap, flowers & metal really work well.

How much fun is it to work with your own papers?  Must be awesome!!

Bye for now

  4. Wow!!! Fabulous page Kerry-Jean!! Absolutely love the design and those metal elements make a gorgeous addition!! Beautifully done as always!! ox

  5. Lovely page...especially that wonderful photo. I really enjoyed the use of colored burlap on this page...adding both texture and a soft color. Thanks for not overwhelming the page with heaped up flowers! I'm really not thrilled that so many scrap pages are piled with so many blooms. Thanks for sending this email!
