Great Grans

Hi there today I am sharing a layout for the Mood board challenge over at

What a beautiful vintage old fashioned feel to this mood board so what better pics to add to this layout but a Great Grandma with her beautiful great granddaughters Kirra and Khloe. (my granddaughters)

Vintage old fashioned feel – well what did I have in my stash that had the vintage feel to it, I used my Tim Holtz – Ideology tissue wrap and with gesso adhered it to a base page. Then I applied a little gesso over the top of the tissue wrap randomly but not to entirely cover the pattern.

Using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – in colours – Chipped sapphire, stormy sky, frayed burlap, and scattered straw, I lightly applied over the tissue wrap.

What really inspired me with this mood board is it really invites you to take a step back in time, so it gave me the opportunity to cut some images from some Pion Design paper I had in the stash. Adding a die cut clock, a little metal charm saying together was just perfect.

To finish the layout I added a tag with a little journaling and a beautiful flower brad. Thanks for dropping by Sharon xxx
