Uncle Norman - Layout - The Scrapbook Store

I am a little late with getting my blog posts up this month, as a lot has been taking place in the back-ground ... more news coming soon. 

My design team kit from The Scrapbook Store this month included the quaint, and vintage inspired papers from Fab Scraps.  I worked with the 'Baby Bear' collection, and this is my first project for the month.  The image is of my Uncle Norman, he's probably one of funniest men alive, always a laugh and into 'something' new.  AND, what a gorgeous photograph of him as a baby.  He recently came back from overseas to spend some time with family - Mum said, 'sibling rivalry still exists at our age' - what a hoot!! 
Gauze was used beneath the image and also under each of the flowers for interest - the gauze was coloured using various distress inks
The Clock Works die was used beneath each end of the photograph, this is a fabulous die - an all time favourite of mine, with so many uses.
Labelle Jade flowers were used, from Prima Marketing, and leaves were created using the foliage die. I hand-crafted 'other' flowers, using the MTF, Trio flower and leaf die, and tiny flowers to 'fill' using a Carl Craft punch.
Kaisercraft, yellow adhesive pearls were used in the centre of each hand-crafted flower, and further to decorate the flower arrangement. Also, I used the Crackle clear stamp from Kaisercraft to create an aged appearance of the outer cardstock edge.
I will be back soon, with more creations ...
till then...
 Keep smiling
Sandie
