I love scrapping vintage photographs. Recently I found an old negative and managed to scan it and create a lovely photo recording a wonderful moment from my Mother's family.
Here were four generations of the family altogether outside my Grandmother's house. This was only the second photo I'd ever seen of my Great-Grandmother which made the photo extra special!
I wanted to make a really feminine layout and started by deciding to use some of the gorgeous Webster's Pages paper with the classic red roses on. I kept with the red and cream colour scheme and the roses for my embellishments:
I used an 'old' technique on this yummy paper where I trimmed the pattern on the paper so it would form a frame around the photograph-it's very quick and easy to do with a craft knife and brings the paper onto the photograph:
I used paper roses in 2 sizes in red and cream (from Hobbycraft) as well as some pretty red lace to highlight to photograph and the journalling because the story was just as important :
Although you can't see it on the photograph of the layout the roses all had a little sparkle from adding Rock Candy Distress Glitter which is a vintage looking, clear glitter from Ranger.
Inspired by Tim Holtz I used some filmstrip as embellishment along with little metal tags and paper tags from Making memories. I wanted the embellishments for this layout to add to its meaning and partly tell the story:
So there you have it a layout with a vintage yet feminine feel that tells one of the stories from my family!
