This is my entry for this weeks Just for Fun which is 'Shades of Green'
I cant begin to tell you how pleased I was as yesterday i just recieved my order from
The Scrapbook Garden of some delicious papers amongst which some of them were green.
The delicious new range of Two Scoops papers is gorgeous, I thought the colours looked fab on the computer but they are even better close up.
This sketch was featured on the Scrapbook Garden blog yesterday and again today
after being one of the sketches used by another designer from our team
its a sketch from Pencil Lines, i liked the look of it and thought id give it a try for this challenge.
I decided on another of my vintage photos , one of my Dads Uncle Eddie.
He loved his garden, so green felt as though it was a good colour for a layout
featuring a picture of him.
This green Two Scoops paper was perfect as the little flowers
showed up well once it was sanded , yet I didint feel as though just
because it had flowers on it was a femine card stock.
I had a large tag which i smeared with glue and then rubbed with distress
inks to turn it green once the glue was dry
I added a stamped image of a gentleman with a cane, Uncle Eddie used a cane
as he had injured his back and had a long road to recovery.
Then after choosing various shades of green cardstock I layered up my design
adding the tag on which I had added a quote too also.
My journalling, Eddie was my Paternal Grandmothers Brother, my Dad was
named after him.
I added his name and some cherries in place of the flowers
on the original sketch, not sure if you can get green cherries
but his surname was Cherry , and the theme was 'shades of green'
so i decided to give it a whirl.
I sanded the edges of the two scoops to distress it a little
and added some craftworks candi pieces to all of the corners.
And thats my layout all done.
Thanks for stopping by my blog , its always much appriciated .
Its nearly the weekend so I hope you all have a nice time, Autumn is approaching fast
but the autumn colours are fab.
