Creative Embellishments and Heartfelt Creations Cross Promotion

Hello, everyone!

It was so fun getting to work with product from two great companies this time! I created a layout of my Dad (far right) using paper from the Heartfelt Creations Celebrate the Journey paper collection. All so warm and neutral. Since this photo was from Dad's Navy days, I selected the 6x6 Fishnet Panel from Creative Embellishments and stained it with Ranger's Vintage Photo. It's been cut apart and strewn about the page but primarily used as a layer under the photo.  I've framed my photo with the Twig Frame with Fall Leaves from Creative Embellishments. It's been gesso-ed and then misted with Prima's Antique Gold Color Bloom.  The Fall Leaves portion have been left bare.  I know …  I'm getting brave! 

I love old photos and the seeing that my parents even at their silliest. You can see my Dad's one and only tattoo on his left wrist. His Navy friends were all supposed to get one as friendship bands. He went first  .. and last! He always wore his watch on the left, so most photos hide it. I thought this was a good opportunity to document the obvious. 

 A little molding paste, splattering, Petaloo and we're all done with our creation. 

This is my last Design Team project for Creative Embellishments for this term and I want to thank Nicolle for having had me. It's been great! 

Thanks for coming by!
