This photograph is of my paternal grandparents who both died when I was young. I don’t have very many memories of them, so it is nice to have this picture to help me to remember what they looked like.
I used several different techniques on this scrapbook page. I like to build my pages using lots of layers. I created the pattern on the background paper by applying texture paste through a stencil. Then I inked the edges and applied a little tea stain to give it an antique look.
On the second layer I used chalk on the flowers to add colour. Some other elements I added to the page include a vintage doily, dyed with tea stain, a tarnished old key, and some pressed flowers from my garden.
