In Honor of My Grandparents, a scrapbook page by Natalie May

Hey there, lovely creatives!

For this month's In Honor of theme,  I am honouring my Grandparents with this Scrapbook Layout.

This is my Nana and Pa's Wedding photo - it is my favorite photo of them and it just beautiful.

Both of them have now passed away but their memory is living on through our family.

To create this page, I used a stencil that is coming out soon designed by Pam Carriker!

Here are a few simple steps ...

I started by using Dress Pattern and book paper to collage a base. Once dry, I used Distress Inks and Oxides plus Lindys Stamp Gang Sprays to add colour.

On a separate panel of cardstock, I used dress pattern again and used the stencil with heavy gesso to create a strip of interest across the middle. I then used a couple of Lindys Stamp Gang sprays to add colour and dimension.

I love how the gesso creates a resist with the spray.

I applied gel medium through a sponge and then added gilding flakes before brushing them off when dry - leaving an awesome finish.

I love the final finish of this page ... the layers of stenciling with gesso, sprays, inks and gilding flakes work so well together and all create a look that matches the photo really well.

Here are a few close-ups:

Thanks so much for stopping by!
