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!!
