Hello crafty friends, Tracy McLennon here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. I am playing with the FabScraps Mother Earth collection of patterned papers perfect for heritage themed layouts. I have a little vintage scrappy inspiration for you.
I have a love for my collection of heritage family photos. I am lucky to have had access to huge photo collection from both sides of my family. So I have scanned, printed and archived many of them. So today I am sharing a layout that I created using a photo of my grandmother (left) and her 2 sisters. I didn’t have the pleasure of meeting any of these beautiful, strong women. But I can create and share their legacy.
FabScraps Mother Earth Collection
This collection from FabScraps is the perfect pairing with heritage photos.
I created a patchwork of pattern behind my photo. Simple squares of multiple patterns, make a great backdrop for any layout. I love working with chipboard, and this pretty chipboard frame is no exception. I added my layers of colour using Ranger Distress Stains and Sprays. Then added a little dimension using Copper Liquid Pearls.As always I love to create with dimension, so my go to adhesives for this layout were my 3D foam products from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. I added vintage buttons from my grandmother’s own collection to the layout using Adhesive DotsThanks so much for stopping by!
