Today I am sharing a page I made with a photo of my great grandmother.  I remember her very well as she didn’t die until I was in my mid teens.   My page base is 12″ x 12″ Whisper White and I used the Decorative Masks to add the medallion using Blueberry Bushell ink.  I punched a length of Blackberry Bliss card using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch and attached it behind one long edge of a piece of the gorgeous Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper.  I added a Blackberry Bliss mat to my photo before attaching to the page.  I stamped the large open flower from the Floral Essence stamp set twice onto Whisper White card using Blackberry Bliss ink. I also stamped the open leaf image four times onto Whisper White card using Old Olive ink.  I used my Aqua Painter to move the ink on the flowers and the leaves, to add colour.  I hand cut the full flower and then a partial flower.  I also cut out the leaves.  I attached the smaller flower on top of the large flower using a dimensional.  I attached the leaves to the back of the flower before attaching to the page, slightly covering the photo.  I coloured a Clear Faceted Gem with the Dark Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blend before attaching it to the centre of the flower.  I cut the title from Blackberry Bliss card using the retired Little Letters Dies.  I printed my journaling onto Whisper White card and cut it into strips.  The journaling is attached to Blackberry Bliss card and then the page.  I have one piece of information missing.  I don’t know the exact date of my Great Grandmother’s death, so I need to talk with my Dad and Mum before adding that final touch.  I am really enjoying scrapping these photos and getting them into my Family Memory Album.  I hope they are inspiring you to do the same.

Bye for now,

Kris
