I started with my favorite photo of my grandss on their wedding day, she was about 17 and he was about 20. I changed the black and white photo to sepia and printed it out on normal printer paper. I then inked the edges with vintage photo ink and mounted the photo on vanilla and brown cardstock. Making sure to seal it all with Modge Podge.
I spent 20 minutes looking for my wood Scrabble pieces. They had fallen behind behind some boxes. Lucky for me I found them and all the letters to spell out REMEMBER. I inked the edges with Walnut to soften the blocks. Adding the gears in grunge and embossing the metalic to creat this accent. Mt grandpa was a commercial fisherman so the big gold gear reminds me of his nautical past.
I kept some tissue from a recent purchase and created this pretty tissue flower. I layered 10 4x4 sheets of the tissue, fan fold about every 1/4" then staple the center to hold the folds. Then I cut the edges round and started seperating the layers and fluffing to make it a flower. To accent the center I added this brass metal button. The key and lock we still drying.
My Mom was a Daddy's girl, so I printed again on the printer paper his photo when he was on his boat. Then layered to create a frame. Using the SU Photo Corners punch, I embossed them and coated them in Glossy Accents. They shine! To help hold the photo in place I added some brads.
Aren't these vintage frames pretty! What a pop they add. I simply printed "MOTHER" and "FATHER" and layered them in the frame. Once I popped them in place with the brads I coated in the Glossy Accents.
Together with the photo's it's a pretty reminder of my Mom's parents.
I love my letter dies so I can create words on this grundge board.
The font is a 1940's type font and one of my favorites.
The On the Edge Distressed Doily is a perfect match my my grandparents 1940's wedding photo!
I picked up this heavy metal clip with the word REMEMBER on it. And a stamped tag CELEBRATE from Scrappy Moms Stamps set Mini Messages.
Thanks for popping in and taking a look. It is so strange my grandparents are gone now. But my Mom will have this for her home where she will see it everyday!
