Ancestry page and Just Imagine Crafts


Hi. Thought it would be fun to share a very old photo in a vintage style page. The photos are so old that scanned they are not perfect but to preserve our ancestry I didn't want to use the original.

I made the backgrouns first with some paint on a crackle mask, i took a page out of a book and embossed and inked it, and then in the corner used masking tape and ink to form a corner.
Adding colour and mats started a great page.

It however needed some pop... hence the punch work. I used Kreaxions Punch #920 with insert A which I punched on both sides... then to add more pop of colour I added a strip. The very bottom piece is single punched.
On this section you can see the punched out pieces scattered throughout for added decor.
I enjoyed sharing with you today... thanks for viewing.

Be sure to visit Just Imagine Crafts to view lots of ideas for punching on your projects.
