I don’t know where to start first… the fact that I get to use the NEW Speckled Egg Distress products or that I have two special photos, me on the left and Melody on the right. I’ll start from the beginning, the photos.
It’s no doubt that she is my mini-me, and I love to find old photos of myself to share the resemblance. Two generations apart and so much in common.
I wanted to create something as a keepsake to display with us together and came up with the idea of a folding tag or locket style display.
I colored a couple of sheets of Watercolor paper with Distress Stains and inks, one in Speckled Egg and Vintage Photo for the larger piece of my tags, one with Speckled Egg for the Tiny Tattered Florals and lastly, one with Vintage Photo and Ground Espresso for the Garden Greens.
I found so many messages to add to this project that fit what I wanted to say from the Tim Holtz Clippings stickers. I also considered coloring the Tim Holtz Typography Findings but felt they looked great left alone.
I filmed the process and hope I’ve inspired you to create a special keepsake project of your own using treasured photos. Enjoy!!
