Today Is a Good Day
I’m so in love with Craft O’Clock’s Blooming Retreat collection that came in the October Scrapbooking Kit from Tres Jolie that I decided to create a third layout featuring a heritage photo of several of my mother’s uncles.
Lots of layering going on here: corrugate and paper scraps, all with torn edges and several groups of tags, fussy cut, lightly distressed and then inked. But!!!! that bottom layer is an illusion; it’s actually the pattern of the paper… The minute I saw it, I just knew that it would be perfect for the image I wanted to use.
The pattern and the layers make for a very busy design, so I kept the rest of my layout simple. I framed the photo with chipboard from the September kit and added a few sprigs and a butterfly from the remains of a package of flowers that came in the November 2018 kit.
Here are a few closeups:
