Here is this weeks challenge:
Techniques: Masks & distressing (edge & inked)
After getting a bunch of photos from my Mother-in-Law I sorted through them and got them into some what of a chronological date order. This picture was actually one of the better spur of the moment shots of my Husband (young) and his Mom. Aside from those Photo Studio pictures there was not a lot of baby photos of my Husband...It amazes me how far photography has come.
For this page I chose colors that played off the purples in the photo. I love how the wine color works. By matting the photo with a larger mat on the 3 sides I hand-stitched with some embroidery floss in a matching shade as the die-cut paper.
Stamped the family quote and fussy cut the sentiment, popped it up with foam tape and attached to a patterned paper mat. Cut out journaling strips which I still need to get those details from my Mother-in-Law to fill in, but inked up the edges.
Cut out my title "Family" using Cricut machine than using a background stamp I stamped on the patterned image. Added the paper flower dot for the "i" and a pearl half. Added a few more of those pearl halves to the bottom edge of the die-cut paper too!
