MDS Monday Challenge 84

October 4, 2014

The challenge this week at MDS Monday was to create a page using the sketch and a vintage photo.

MDSM84 Sept 29 14-002I have lots of vintage photos that my mother-in-law kept.  This one is of my husband’s Grandfather, taken when he was around 17 or 18 (early 1900’s).

MDSM84-for-WebThe Pear Pizzazz designer series paper comes from the Family History Photobook Template – Digital Download.  I also used First Edition Designer Series Paper – Digital Download.  The “splashes” are from the Extreme Elements Stamp Brush Set – Digital  Download and I have changed the opacity so that they are quite light, hopefully it helps create a feeling of aged paper.  The ornate pieces at the top and bottom of the photo are from the Frames with a Flourish Stamp Brush set – Digital Download.  They are coloured Early Expresso to match the frame around the photo.  The smaller frames with the text come from the Family History Photobook Template – Digital Download.

I hope you all love My Digital Studio as much as I do and that is inspires you to create something to preserve your family history.

Edited:  Very excited this page was chosen as one of Tami’s picks for this challenge.  Yay.

Bye for now,
