This is my first layout for the Scrapbook Garden for this design kit.
The picture is my Mams cousin Amalia Augusta Douglas .
It was taken at one of her performances while she was on stage.
She doesnt look very old here , I dont know the date but I presume it
must have been early on in her stage performances.
Firstly take a look at these fab papers you can find them here
they are gorgeous and Ive been so pleased to have been working with them .
I chose some chipboard shapes from my stash amd covered them with one of the papers from the pack.
Next I cut out the title and inked it fown using some Vintage
Using some of the distress inks I used this rubber stamp.
You can find it here with some others
It gave a great clear image which i was really pleased with.
Once I had my chipboard pieces covered I decided
on how I was going to use the 6 x 6 patturned paper.
I used the American crafts cardstock in Coffee
This was a great contrast to the beautiful colourful paper.
After cutting my 6 x 6 and laying out the design
in the corners of the 12 x 12 I added some torn
Sheet music and a chipboard tag from my
stash with I used some distress ink and the
Tando Creative Musical mask to ink it down ,
carrying on the musical theme as she is holding
a tamborine in her hand.
I added my title
And then the stamped flower discs
and a little few punched musical notes and my
it too were she still with us. Pop over to the Scrapbook Garden and have a peep at all the goodies thats there , theres some great new products being added all of the time, so dont miss out on the bargains.
Have a lovely weekend , Im off to my Granddaughters Christening inbetween working and Im looking forward to it .
