Nature....the great outdoors!

I love this picture of my grandson at our favorite lake last summer! Love the shadow effect on him, with lake in the background!! I really wanted a vintage feel to this, so I tea dyed the lace and just glued it down how it laid there! Then I really layered the papers and distressed them quite heavy. I also took some ribbon and jute and laced it through the scalloped edge of background paper. I wasn't happy with how clean the upper right corner of music paper looked, so I poured some of my tea into a saucer, then set my teacup in it, then set it on the lo........looks like the lo's been around forever now!! Pretty easy fix!! Thanks so much for stoppin' by!!


  1. Teresa this is so beautiful!!

    I love the way you have threaded through the fibres it looks incredible!! Nice title on the photo did you use a rub on or photoshop?

    Either way it looks fab and who would have thought of a tea cup stain.....I spend my days worrying about getting one on my layouts!! lol!!

    Love Ruth xxx
