Four Generations ~ Vintage Journal Range

Hello Mary here sharing a layout I created with the new Vintage Journal Range. It is probably obvious that vintage/heritage is one of my most favourite styles, so I am loving this range very much.

Four Generations

I  used the Vintage Journal 01 as my background page and then I used the 02 4 X 12 strip and fussy cut the book from it to add to my page. I used the rest of the strip by adding it to the torn side piece and also as the back of the paper is white I added the left over pieces to the area I rolled back to have a pattern . I then popped the rest of the left over strips behind my photo to add interest and contrast.
I placed my photo on layered pieces of the 4 x 6 strip from Vintage Journal 06 , as I really loved the ink spots ( those 4 x 6 strips really come in handy ) Below is a example of the Vintage 06 Paper with the handy 4 x 6 strip

I  fussy cut the hot air balloon and little Postal tags from the Vintage Journal cut and create and added the Vintage Trinket to the torn area and also a little bead.

To the fussy cut book I added ribbon and a bead from Megs Shop , so it looks like a book mark

I roughed around the edges of my photo . I have added Plasters Tape on my layout and texture paste through a stencil , I  used pan pastels to colour the stencil pattern. I  added some stamping and inked around the edge of my page with Vintage Photo ink.
All the papers and embellishments I have used can be found in Megs shop and so much more :)

Until next time
Happy Creating
