Anzac Heritage Layout by Sue Smyth

Anzac Heritage Layout
By Sue Smyth

Hello Crafters
Today I am sharing a Heritage layout

The Gentlemans collection is so suitable for all those heritage Masculine 
pages that everyone puts off doing.
This is a photo of my Great Grandfather, when he was young and handsome,
I knew him well as he lived to 84.
He was mischievous and adventurous and had a great spirit survived 
the war and married his sweetheart not long after this 
photo was taken.

To create the poppies simply spray flowers with red dylusions,
no need for glitter or anything else !

Fussy cut elements, combine with metal fasteners, fibres and 
trinkets to create an old world feel.

I have rolled back the edges of the paper, to cover
the white area on the back of the paper, I have
stamped an all over patterned stamp with sepia 

Fussy cut Hot Air Balloons, ink edges and 
cup them with a mouse pad and stylus.

Attach Balloons with 3 D foam tape to give 
a wonderful shaped dimensional look.


Happy Crafting
