Hi friends! So happy you stopped by today. We are enjoying warmer weather this week! WHEW! : ) LOL
Let me tell you just a little bit about Margaret, the Great-Aunt of my late husband.
She was born in Philadelphia in 1926; the middle of 3 sisters~ She will be 90 years old in April!
And is currently living in North Carolina; though Cleveland OH was her home for most of her life.
Her parents were born in the USA, but her grandparents were from Czechoslovakia.
I have photo's of some of her family, including Alan's grandmother Catherine, (Margaret's older sister : )
and I hope to do more scrapbooking with those photo's sometime this year~
I just couldn't help myself when I saw her sweet face, the baby doll!, and her shoe's and 'scrunchy' sox! I just had to do something right away.
She is sitting in a big dark chair, in front of a window. I like her hair all dressed in ringlets too~ I apologize, when I copied the photo, the reprint pulled the violet hue's: (
The chipboard used here is from Blue Fern Studio's ---> http://bluefernstudios.com/
and I believe the large piece is called "Organic Vine Corner."
I painted the chipboard with Gesso, then added Tim Holtz:
*White Liquid Pearls
*Walnut Stain distress ink
(found here)---> http://shop.rangerink.com/
I used some beautiful vintage lace from Liz! http://lululizinlalaland.blogspot.com/
(thank you so much Liz!) and some other lace, seam binding, linen, canvas and cotton fabric I had in my basket~
I hope to create a wall hanging with this - by adding it to some sturdy black board & adding a ribbon hanger; or perhaps make a true 12 X 12 lay out with it; to be framed. I am just not sure yet~
I sure hope you know what an encouragement you are to me!! Thanks ever-so-much for the visit today~ May God bless you, Karen
