Traveling Man by Kerry-Jean Watson

Hello Bloggers! Here is another heritage layout.

I wanted to play with my paper collection Correspondence but in a more masculine way. 

This is my Great Uncle who at a young age in the early 1900 travelled by ship from South Africa to New York. I was lucky enough to find information in genealogy archives about his movement around the USA. 

So in this layout I have used the awesome cogs and gears from Meg's Garden, along with some of Finnabair's trinkets from Prima which I LOVE.  I added clock faces from Old World Time transparency and a hot air balloon , with a then a few Vintage Advertisements over a Vintage Map.

I hope you like this project and please feel free to leave a comment or question.

  2. Hi Kerry-Jean, I've been trying to leave a comment for a couple of days now. Let's see if this one sticks finally. Love your masculine page with your very own collection. You are lucky to have such a precious vintage photo. Beautiful work :D
