Generations - a Heritage Layout by Lynne

Hello there and Happy New Year and a happy January to you! Although I love creating a variety of projects, layouts are my first love so I thought it would be appropriate to start the new year off with one.
I coated the clock with a rusting powder then brushed on antique gold acrylic paint here and there to create a vintage effect. I love how detailed the clock is!

I covered the first two layers of the cameo piece with patterned paper then sanded and inked the edges. The profile piece was painted with acrylic paint then heat-embossed with UTEE to give a glossy raised finish.
The photo I used is a portrait of my great-great grandparents. She was of French heritage born here in Canada, but he came over from Ireland during the potato famine in the mid 1800s. I've been so enjoying the heritage photos I've gotten of both sides of my family. They're such a pleasure to scrap with and there are so many gorgeous pieces in the Gypsy Soul store that complement them so well.

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a year full of happiness and creativity!!
