Every photo tells a story


'Vintage Photo' is the new theme over at Try it on Tuesdays.
The girls have made some fantastic pieces, please pop over to see what they made.






This is how my journal page started off, it is a kraft card journal and soaks up the paint, I had no gesso so used watered down acrylics, which eventually worked.
The first stage was to add  a texture using paste and a stencil.

This is how it looked after added some book print and spray paint.  It slushed up so much ink on the print that  I ended up covering part  with some material and got out the trusty distress ink. Problem solved..
Back to  inky fingers, so sorry no photos of these stages.
It was finished off with touches of gilding wax.
Found relatives photos and a number of bits and pieces.

I don't often have a plan when I create a journal page but this time, I did.
My thinking  was. that we all grow older,
 yet,  friendships  that  span  those years, 
 become stronger as the years go by.

Thank you for calling to see me today and I  hope you will join us at TioT's.

  12. That's a beautiful DT entry, Yvonne. And you are right. It would be prudent for all of us to recognize how friendships grow stronger over time. I have a friend I've known since I was a freshman in college. We may not see each other for years, but it seems we pick up right where we left off in our friendship. I adore this journal page, and also the lesson we can learn from it!
