Feb 1959


I had a few pieces of this paper patterned set left although I can't think what its called but rather than bin I decided to use for a photo of my Mum and Dad. Sometimes I like using scrap left for scrapbooking because the bits are all that left and I generally they fall into place easier.
One I added the date and the pearl flourish which I notice doesn't show up and in hindsight I could have coloured black. I was stuck with what to do next so I left it for a bit and while searching for something I found the bullrushes die with the dragonflies and I had a lightbulb moment. I then added some ink splats with a stamp round the edges to soften the white and age it a bit. Turned out not bad at all.
I'm scheduling this post, I am out all of Saturday at a 12 hour Scrapbooking crop although I won't be there till the very end I will still be feeling the after effects this way I don't have to worry about  sorting out a post. Things should quieten down while I rest ready for our holiday soon.
