This layout is my entry in Très Jolie Kit Club’s August Mood Board Challenge, using the pattern paper and embellishments that were included in the August kit.
This kit has a very masculine theme, with papers from Couture Creations’ Gentleman’s Emporium collection and tons of metal embellishments from Prima, as well as a Tim Holtz stencil and the perfect chipboard embellishment from Creative Embellishments – all of the components that I need to create the perfect setting for this photo of my great-grandfather, August Heinick.
I’ve taken a few liberties here: this photo was taken several decades after the “1897” seen in the layers and the title was interpreted somewhat broadly. My great-grandfather seems to have worn a mustache all through his adult life, but never a beard. But I love the title and it seems to fit the photo so well that I decided to go with it.
Lots of details and a complete list of supplies can be found on my blog http://www.scrappymusings.com/2019/08/beardedness.html
