Wedding Scrapbook Layout



A scrapbook page from my daughter’s wedding. Grandma Marie had a special tradition of giving each new bride in the family a pearl necklace for her wedding gift.

Tip: Take a series of pictures to commemorate a special moment.

Since this double page layout was about Grandma & Bride, I chose the pink color to compliment what Grandma Marie was wearing.

Ruth Romanticized About New Glasses!

Ruth romanticized new glasses giving her the timeless, sophisticated look that she longed for.

I am intrigued with the expressive qualities that eyes alone portray. Highlighting the eyes by placing them behind glasses has become a favorite way for me to showcase their character.

“Ruth romanticized new glasses giving her the timeless, sophisticated look that she longed for.” This idea was cultivated from my silly grade school desire of having glasses and the anticipated impact they would have on my life.

The picture of Ruth came from my archive of family photos. The eyes are from a favorite portrait of my grandmother Eleanore and passed for giving Ruth the dreamy look I wanted to showcase. Ruth and Eleanore are cousins accounting for the similarity in shape of their eyes. I especially like to incorporate family photos in my artwork.

The buttons are from Granny's button jar.

This clock hangs in my house and every time I look at it I am reminded of happy times.

This piece was featured in Somerset Home, Volume 2 , you can find it here.

Christmas Memories of My Visit With Santa Claus.

I have many fond memories of Christmas as a child. If you are about my age you may remember receiving a balloon attached to a large candy striped straw from Santa Claus.

A Series of Poses Framed Together

A series of impromptu poses framed together tell an interesting story. All I have to do is look at how many candles are on the cake and I know that this was my son's third birthday. Letters were stamped on the mat board with acrylic paint in a haphazard way hinting to singing. "HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU"! With some adjustments this would be a cute layout for a scrapbook page also!
