The Holland Family by Judith Armstrong

Good morning FWAB fans. Today I have a heritage layout to share with you. The photo on this layout features by Great Great Grandparents with their 12 children and spouses of those that had them at the time. It was taken about 1901. It’s amazing to think that they managed to bring up 12 children to adulthood given the amount of infant and childhood deaths at the time.

To create the layout I used a piece of Bo Bunny Welcome Home patterned paper for my base. I added some green brick stamping and sprayed some Studio Calico Mr Huey Calico spray through a stencil. I then added some dots of texture paste through another stencil and finally sprayed some Lindy’s Stamp Gang Starburst Cattail Copper Brown to give it a bit of a metallic sheen.

Then I built up my layers behind the photo using some more Bo Bunny Welcome Home patterned paper and some die cuts from the same collection. I then added my FWAB goodies – 2 white Maddison flowers, a FWAB Luke Flourish in Bronze and a Chloe Pearl Flourish in Olive Green both of which I cut up into sections to make them go further. I also used a few spare pearls from the Chloe Pearl Flourish to dot around the layout.

I hope I inspired you to maybe get out some of your old photos.

Thanks for looking
