This is my entry for the February Scrap Around The World challenge. The moodboard is a beautiful, romantic mix of Spring like tones!
I seem to be taking my Mother as my muse lately, and have used an old photo of her taken in 1945.
I started with a plain piece of white cardstock, and onto this I did some random stamping. Then I put molding paste through various stencils. Inspired by the ombre tones of green and yellow, I sprayed inks and also applied them with a brush, building up the layers slowly until I got them where I wanted them. I did more stamping, framed and layered up the photo, and applied it over a piece of old trim which I colorized. Then I added pieces of old laces and fussy cut wallpaper, both of which belonged to Mom, the wallpaper actually hung in a room in her home at one time. These pieces I layered around the photo, the quotation (by W. de la Mare), and the right hand side of the layout. I added beads, and braided a piece of jute twine very loosely and affixed it to the left hand side of my page.
Here's to Spring, we could sure use it right about now here in frigid and snowy New England!!
Many thanks to all who might look at my page and leave a comment, I greatly appreciate this!!
