Memories for the book of Life

Hello Mary here to share a layout using the Vintage Journal 03 background Paper , along with images from the Parisian Gardens Cut and Create Sheet.

I have added texture paste through a stencil which I then sponged with  pan pastels to add some colour. I also added stamping and washi tape to my layout. The Remember Sentiment is fussy cut from the cut and create sheet and I shaded it with  Tim Holts vintage photo distress ink. I used mesh ribbon in both coffee and caramel at the bottom of the chipboard circle for texture and interest

I   added the little butterfly filigree charm to the circle vine chipboard piece and sitting at the bottom of my chipboard circle  I have the frog with the horn  , attached to him I have some narrow ribbon twirling down to the key that I fussy cut from the Cut and Create page. These little charms just add that lovely little touch to a layout. The large butterfly sitting on the circle is also fussy cut from the cut and create page ( there are so many beautiful images to choose from ) . I have a piece of cream lace which I think adds to the old world feel of the layout.
The Photo was taken over 37 years ago, I am with some friends and holding my first born. I thought the papers suited this memory I wanted to document and keep .
Thank You for calling by , I hope you find some time to create this week and if you are looking for gorgeous products to do so with , then visit Megs Shop. Everything I have used besides the washi and stamps from my stash and the chipboard circle from A2Z Scraplets can be found at Megs Store.
Take your time scrolling through the DT girls inspiration and also some fabulous links to tutorials .
Until Next time
Happy Creating
