When I was in graduate school I participated with a group that went to an area of government housing once a week to play and work with kids after school. On one of those trips a friend came with us and took photos. These are just a few of them. I remember the love and warmth of these children.
The Layout Before
The Layout Finished
- Never do a layout like this without having your photos picked out ahead of time. Good grief I had a hard time choosing photos and then arranging them on the page. I loved this background so much.
- I decided to use a few older products like the die cut flowers. I inked them with Tim Holtz's Distressed Ink and Stains. I added an older Maya Road flower. Both ribbon pieces are older. The "imagine" tag is older and I think from Karen Foster. I'm not sure.
- A little Snow Cap paint really helps to age the embellishments.
- Adding the journaling on the page makes this page priceless for me and my family.
- Late night with the family asleep is the best time to quietly sit and stitch. I love to hand stitch quilt patterns on my pages. I remember my grandparents and great grandparents. Quilting was for warmth, not so much to display.
