New Pages, the first album is nearly complete....
With only a few pages left to do my first vintage album is nearly complete.
These pages show my Great Grandfather Edward Cherry, Great Grandma Green who was actually a neighbour that helped to look after the family when my Great Grandmother passed away. Also my Grandparents Thomas Henry Lavery and his wife Isabella ( nee Cherry). Thomas and Isabella were my Dads parents.
This set of pictures were actually made from a set of oil paintings that my cousin has. I used my melting pot to make some embellishments for this page. Also a stencil to make the flourishs for the page.
The very pink page is me when i was very small. This page was inspired by the Vintage Pram card on the bottom left of the page, and also the little wooden rag doll which were a gift from my friend Pauline. Thank you Pauline.
Only a few more pages and thats the first album done, cant wait to start the next and as I complete more pages i intend to separate them into families, so that each book will be a record of each leg of the family. I really enjoy working with these old images and I am very grateful to members of my family who have rallied around to make sure i have lots to work with.
Thanks for visiting my blog
