Of course the Tattered Angels Mist had to be used. I do believe the next layout is the first one in a very long time I chose not to use any Tattered Angels Products on a heritage layout!
The Socke Family whom I have never met is a photo of Uncle Tom's daughter Barbara, my mother's first cousin and my second cousin. She is shown here with her husband Hollis and daughters Judy and Joanne. The photo was taken in 1952.
October Afternoon 5&Dime seemed to be the perfect line to use for a 1950's photo. What I loved the most when I added the Washi Tape, I found the numbers in the Prima Engraver's Tape would take the color of the cardstock with a slightly lighter shade. I should have known it would do so as the numerals are white and opaque, but still a pleasant surprise! I'm just really starting to get a collection of tapes together and learning how they perform on a layout! I also could have trimmed the top of the photo, but I find how photos are developed and presented are often part of the fun of heritage layouts! The way photos are presented change with the history how photography has developed!
Nuts About Sketches #273 is a wonderful sketch to use weather you want multiple photos as the sketch calls for or just a single photo as I used! Thank you Shawn for a great sketch to work with!
It's also always fun when one can combine your design team work with a challenge at your favorite scrapping community! This fit perfectly the A Cherry On Top July 2013 Holiday Challenge! So much fun to make any layout with the following 4th of July staple elements: Stars & Stripes along with a little washi tape!
Until next time.....
