Here I am back with a layout created for Soul Scrappers - this time the letter challenge was "V" and the criteria Vellum. My word is Vintage.
I searched my stash for some vellum - not an easy task as it is not something that I regularly use and in fact it is not something that I have really embraced. Yes, it is Christmas themed - oh, well, how was I going to make it work. As I was doing this, I found a piece of Graphic 45 paper with a fashion theme. Taking inspiration from the fact that Mum was a dressmaker I decided to keep the word Seasons and then tear the remaining piece of vellum and adhered with brads (somewhat crookedly on the top) to resemble pin tucks that feature on her dress. Some simple embellishments complete the layout.
My mother passed away at the very young age of 49 and Dad made it to his 87 birthday. So these old photos do have enduring interest and importance to me.
Thank you for looking, Margaret :)
