cherblashley.typepad.com > Heart Strings: Layouts

I never really have enough time to scrapbook, not to mention not having all my photos with me at the present time. However, I thought that I would share these with everyone, especially so Baylee and Devynn can see themselves on Nana's blog!

My Grandmother

My Grandmother

I never got to meet my grandmother, but I know that she had polio so I designed this layout to represent all the lady like things she must have dreamed about even if she couldn't have them. You can open the frame 'door' too. Antique buttons and lace, as well as, a layered background and 'stuffed' dress mannequin wearing tulle. So soft and feminine


Precious

Since I was doing all of these with my 'girls', except the red one, for a scrapbook company, I basically stayed within whatever could be purchased at a scrapbooking store as the materials for my layouts.


Beautiful

Beautiful

This is, perhaps, my favorite one because I cut out a wallpaper design and used it as my basic embellishment. Looking at this picture, you can see it didn't need much.


Happy Feet

Happy Feet

I love all these colors, but usually don't use them in my artwork. So, I turned this great photo of my girls feet to black and white, then had a riot. I even used stamps from South Africa because they fit so well with these juicy tones.


Nestling

Nestling

There's one of my first pictures of my newest granddaughter, Trynnity. I did this for CHA using Stampington products; however, I just love Angela's transparencie so I took the opportunity to use them here and let my baby go back to the egg, so to speak.


My Girls

My Girls

This is the other layout I did for CHA, only this time using Lynn Perella's papers. I just love that Baylee and Devynn both had on red shirts, so I did the whole thing in red using an 1893 text page and some gesso to tone things down a little.
