The theme this week is 'Mother And Child' and my first thought was do a vintage piece with a wonderful image, sepia tones and relevant embellishments. That didn't enthuse me so I carried on with some more packing for the big move (grrrr!). I then came across this photo and others of my daughter when she was about 16 months old.
We used to live in a small seaside village which meant lots of lovely walks come rain or shine! It's funny when you see these photos, it seems just like yesterday and the memories are so clear. Amazing considering my daughter is now well into her 21st year!
Never been to Tag Tuesday before? You really should click here and see the wonderful work over there.
I have never tried to scrap before but I suppose you could say this is my first ever attempt. . . . . . .there's still paint and crackle of course!
|Looks better when you see the angle close up I think! Some card was coloured with distress ink, spritzed, dried and then stamped with the words using archival ink.|
|These three DecoArt colours were used to dry brush the painted crackle.|
|A little warm white was used here and there to highlight small areas.|
|The photo was cut and then edged with some thick jute rope, I feel this keeps to the seaside theme.|
|Look at that little face!!|
|A little shell collected on one of our many beach walks (we still both love to do this so I have no idea when or where this one came from!).|
|That's the right angle to view the words!!|
I really enjoyed making this tag and although I should be packing boxes, I can't not sit at my desk for an hour or so can I? (or three, or four!).
Thanks to my new followers for joining me - hope you enjoy looking. Anyone else cold? Brrrrrrr. . . . .
