KB: Art Journaling and Scrapbooking, A Good Pair

I am fortunate to have older photos of my family and my husband's family.   With my newfound love of Art Journaling and my Scrapbooking passion, I put together a fun page of my husband's father when he was quite young: KB.  

Yes!  Attitude is everything.  As long as I have known Dad he has been a quiet, soft-spoken man, who loves his family deeply.   

I made a copy of this photo and cut it out for the Art Journaling page.  I believe this is before Jim's Mom and Dad were married.  

I used the following products:
Tim Holtz Oxide Inks, Washi Tape, Drywall Mesh, Wendy Vecchi dot stamp,  Tim Holtz diamond stamp, Tim Holtz chit chat, foam alphabet stamps, black acrylic paint, Tim Holtz brick wall stencil, and Distress Spray.

The medium that is new to me is Tim Holtz's, Distress Glaze.  I tried different ways to color the photo (without a computer) but always failed because it would rub off easily or ruin the photo.  I applied the Distress Glaze on the photo then added a few colors.  I even gave it a bit of a distressed, old look.  The photo was not ruined this time.  Now that was fun!

Dad was sitting on a fence in the original photo.  I gave it an Art Journaling twist with the drywall mesh topped with washi tape. 

I could point out mistakes but I think you can find them without me.  ­čśä

My husband enjoyed this page and that alone gave me great satisfaction.  Dad is 96 now.  He has seen nearly of century of worldwide change.  What a blessing he is to all of us. 

Would love to hear from you.  Leave a comment and tell us the age of the oldest in your family.
