Great-Great-Grandparents circa 1925


Oh My Goodness….half a year already gone….where did that time go? Back to study for me next week so not too much ‘extracurricular’ crafting for a while – that’s the hard part BUT I'm excited because I'm helping to celebrate the 1st challenge over at Sketchy Boards,   I was privileged to be asked by Heidi to be a guest designer for Sketchy Boards challenges – they have monthly challenges using a sketch and colour inspiration board or picture.

Here’s the beautiful mood picture and the sketch that Heidi sent me to work with…
 
I took my inspiration predominantly from the trees which symbolize life and longevity – definitely the case in my ancestry :) And the gorgeous ‘vintage’ brown and teal colours inspired me to choose this photo taken in the early 1920’s, of my paternal great-great-grandparents,
 Last week, I was lucky enough to locate another one of my second cousins (in the U.K.) - who kindly sent me this photo and a few others that I haven’t seen before.
Supplies used:
 Bazzil cardstock; Kaisercraft (sweet nothings collection) & stash pp; my2angels fence, bird nest, flying bird charm, leaves and petite sentiment frame;
Kaiser flowers and collectables; Prima canvas flourish, resin birds and flowers; Paper Pizzaz, Sandylion & Adornit Coralees Creations alpha(burlap rust) stickers;

 Scrapping Outback Lindy's Stamp Gang (LSG) mist (Steampunk Sepia) & Fabrico pen; Sepia ink; Helmar scrap dots & 450 quick dry adhesives; Crackle accents; Martha Stewart punch; the Trinket Track cork bird; lace; Words or Whatever (WOW) Altamatz.
Thanks for popping over today, special thanks to Heidi and the team for inviting me to be their guest – what an inspiring challenge J

butterfly kisses

My fairy

Your fairy is called Columbine Goblinglitter
She is a bringer of riches and wealth.
She lives in mushroom fields and quiet meadows.
She is only seen in the light of a shooting star.
She wears lilac and purple like columbine flowers. She has gentle green wings like a butterfly.
