Finally finished my four LO's and then had to get DD to photograph them as I never seem to get all the edges at right angles to each other !!!! I have tried to work it out but if two are parallel the other two are off ????
So here they are and I hope you like them. If you want to know the stories that go with the people, I have posted the LO's with their story on G the P
This is Mum at nearly ten, I think, as she looks older than in the next photos when she was just about eight. Found the lace at the bottom of the lace bag and it was just what I was looking for. I have now realized that I forgot to put a date on it ...it was either the end of 1926 or the beginning of 1927.
I enjoyed cutting out the flowers for this and mounting them over their twin on the paper. I have to apologise to the person I got this idea from, because I have forgotten who it was. I knew ... as soon as I saw the technique ... that it would opened up the use of so many of my flowery papers
This one was where I used my wall stamp ...inspired by the fact that Bill is standing against a stone wall . I also used it on the edge of the hidden journalling tabs. I am so sad that these rub-ons are no longer made ... I think they are so perfect for vintage. I still have capitals but am having to improvise some letters with the lower case.
The next LO is of his daughters Betty and Sybil ... the two older girls on the LO above.
So many people write around their photos ... I thought I would have a go. I just have the other two to sort out now.
Have done more bread baking and it has gone again but when the novelty has worn off, my muscles get strong enough to make a large batch and I make it regularly ....I hope to get a nice photo for you lol. I have to say I am very pleased with it and have discovered that if you flour the top before baking and put a towel over it once it begins to cool ... the loaf has a yummy soft crust.
Take care xx
