Familiy Chronicles

Hi everyone,

This week is "it's in the family" over at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Maybe you'll make a project for your family, you're trying to make a family tree or use a family of colors. Whatever you come up with, we'd like to see!


In my art journal I wanted to use the Found Relatives, unfortunately I don't have any pictures of my ancestors and used these replacements instead. I love Finnabair's art journaling style, really pretty, and I'm very inspired by it. Love to play with and give it my own spin.



First I distressed the background, especially the edges, with Spiced Marmalade, Barn Door, and a bit of Walnut Stain Distress Ink. These colors in combination with lots of white are stunning.



Then I decided which Found Relatives I wanted to use and which were the easiest to cut out. With the strips of paper and washi tapes I made a simple composition. Above of the strips I stamped with Versamark the Doily and covered it Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls. 



With a variety of stamps I built up the background. I sprayed with Lindsy's Stamp Gang and a homemade spray of Barn Door, Spiced Marmalade Rein Cherry and Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls,  a little  bit to make it all the same color and to make it more a whole.

  4. I love how this turned out! I adore the bright bold colors paired with the black and white found relatives. I also like all the imagery you created in the background and think the doily stamp looks especially cool. Of course, I am always a fan of incorporating lace, so I love what you did with that, too. Wonderful piece!
