A Heritage Layout

Another Finnabair inspired layout today.  I really like creating this style but I don't think they will be so good to put in albums - just a tad chunky.  This layout is of my Grandad and Mum probably early 1938. 
 Dad has been cleaning out his shed and all sorts of bits and bobs are coming my way so many of the nuts bolts and screws are from him and also the chain at the base of the photo.  Also Mum has been cleaning out her drawers and old costume jewellery bits have also been coming my way.  Spot the old diamante earrings and the metal butterfly.   Other embellishments and papers were left over from the generous kit we received at Finnabair's classes.  I still have enough for another couple of layouts.

 As I do not have a lot of stamps suitable for this style I just used inked bubble wrap to add some interest to the base.

I hope your weekend is going well.  A gorgeous day (and even slightly warm) here today.  I should be outside but the scrap room is beckoning.  We are having a catchup weekend with friends and have had people for tea the last two nights and again tonight so I have spent a bit of time in the kitchen but not too much - keeping it simple.  

Thank you so much for visiting today but would love to know you have been by leaving a comment. 

Until next time....

Amazing amount of detail and work in there Dianne - stunning.

Fantastic page. I agree that it might be a little heavy to put into an album, but a page that beautiful should be framed and hung on the wall.

Exquisite, this is just so magical - vintage and beyond is so me... I recently completed a LO with an image very similar. Your work is truly amazing.
