Flower Girl

October 3, 2020

Today’s page shows off some photos of my Mum being a Flower Girl back in 1941 or 1942.  I used one of the Basic Pattern Masks to add Early Espresso ink to a piece of Early Espresso card.  I didn’t want it to be uniform so I just sponged on some ink and moved around the mask to get a kind of faded out pattern.  I attached the Early Espresso card to a Whisper White 12″ x 12″ page.  I embossed a strip of Smoky Slate card using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and attached it across the page.  I attached the two 3″ x 4″ photos to the embossed card before attaching the main photo which is mounted on Crumb Cake card.  I cut the title from Crumb Cake card and attached it to the page above the two smaller photos.  I stamped one leaf from the Forever Fern stamp set onto Whisper White card using Mossy meadow ink.  I stamped two of another of the leaves from the Forever Fern stamp set onto Whisper White card using Old Olive ink.  I also stamped two of the floral images from the Forever Fern stamp set onto Whisper White card using Merry Merlot ink.  I cut out the leaves and flowers using the co-ordinating Forever Flourishing Dies.  I attached the leaves and flowers to the left hand side of the main photo.  I tied a bow in a length of some of the Very Vanilla open weave ribbon from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack and attached it over the ends of the bouquet.  I created the journaling on the computer and printed it onto Whisper White card which I cut into strips to add to the page.

I cannot begin to describe how happy I am with this page.  Such a beautiful photo of my Mum.

Bye for now,

Kris
