Timeless Treasure .. one of my favourite family photos


Timeless Treasure is a multitasking project this month. Using  Sketches in Thyme sketch (below) and products from my 2 Design Teams - Creative Embellishments and The Rubber Buggy- I created this page sharing my family photo with 4 generations represented. It is one of my favourite photos from when we all get together and share family time.


Supply List:
Other: Tim Holtz mini pad Inks 
Sketch: Sketches in Thyme


Starting with the paper pieces and the photo I set these aside and then created the background in photo below.


When you know where your paper and photo are going to be placed on the base you can then estimate where you would like to do background stenciling that will show the best when placing the paper and photo back onto the base. I used many colours of mini pad inks and the fishnet stencil from Creative Embellishments to create my background. I also splattered some paint too.


Now you re position your papers and photo making sure as much of the background still shows and adds the depth and dimension to your project that you wanted. 


The photo needed some matting with popping colours to pull it off the page that in itself was full of colours.


These fabulous large border type words framed the paper block in perfectly. Notice the upper flair button in this photo and another one in the photo below. I added some stickers from the paper collection too.


The cage sticker in this section was foam dotted to pop it up off the page.
Working with all the amazing products from different DT and the sketch made for a fabulous family memory.






Thanks for stopping by today. Take time to play along with our sketch and share with us and visit both online stores to view the best products.
