If I could save time in a bottle - Scrap-Page

 Hello and welcome to my crafty blogg,

Back in the blogging mood and hoping to keep up the momentum.

I recently found the boxes of photos we stored in the garage and I really need to go through them and  make some choices on what we keep and what we let go.  Some many out of focus and wonky angles, I think it is time to let them drift off into photo heaven :-)

Today's post is a scrap-page using some die-cuts, stick-on letters and papers from my existing stash.  All items bought so long ago that I can't remember what the brand names are. Sorry.

The photo is old and cracked and I needed to take care not to do any additional damage so I mounted the photo onto some card stock and used that base to adhere the photo to the page.

My husband's father died late last year and this little photo is precious and deserved special treatment. Not many photos have survived and time and poor storage have not helped the condition of the photo.

I distressed the 12x12 page using   Tim Holtz Vintage Photo   distress ink and roughed the edges with a distress tool. I just started adding the layers and moving the pieces around until I got the look I wanted.
Faded, crinkled and worn.

I have a frame ready for the page and as soon as the ink drips and paint splashes dry I will complete the framing.

All being well I will maintain my blogging routine and get back into the swing again. See you next time and thank you for stopping by to visit my blog. Your vist and any comments left are appreciated.

Hello all and welcome to my crafty to blogg.

Another quick post of a journal page just completed today.  Using newspaper cutouts, acrylics, inks, Gelatos and crayola markers I created the page before I found a suitable quote. 

Just love art journaling. Like I said before, this process is great for letting the creative juices flow.

Give it a try.

Thanks for dropping by and visiting. Your time and comments are appreciated.
