Memories - DT Art Anthology

Hi there, hope you all are having a good time!
Now holiday season is over for my part, back to work and lots of work!
But I always find some time for scrapping, it might not be finished the same day, but that's OK, especially when I use a lot of medium.
Like the layout I want to show you today featuring Art Anthology
. Packed with different medium, colorations, velvet, sorbet.

I also want to show you how my layout started out.
Everytime I make a layout I plan to do a "step-by-step", but most of the time I forget to photograph every detail.
Like this one.
Well, it started with a plain white bazzill. (you probably won't see the white in the end LOL) Some modelling paste and stencil:
Some coloration mist, in two different pink IMG_2150

Some more colorations, now turquoise, and also a brown together with a stencilIMG_2151

Here is the point that creativity took over and I totally forgot to photograph, so the rest of the photos are the finished project.


Some details of course


I used Sorbet in the color Viridian on the chipboards:



Here you see more of the chipboards and the Sorbet - Viridian.
On the resist canvas I used both Coloration - Sangria and some Sorbet - Viridian IMG_2219

Gorgeous butterfly from reneabouquets

Here you can spot the use of Velvet - Mayan Gold with a stencil IMG_2216


The photo on this layout is my Grandfather and Grandmother, long time ago. When I saw the challenge on Once Upon a Sketch I knew I had to use this photo!
Sadly they are both dead, miss them so much both of them.
Have so many good memories from holidays at their little farm, just outside my hometown. 
My Grandfather had several bee-hives and were very clever with his hands. He even knitted!!
In his youth he went to USA and worked with tractors and other agricultural machines before he settled down with my Grandmother at their small farm.
The last 15 years of his live my Grandmother took care of both him and the farm as he mainly was in bed, sick with astma and other problems with his lungs. She was a fantastic woman as well!
As you probably understand, I miss them so much but have tons of happy memories.

My journaling is on the right side and also at the bottom right part of the layout.


Art Anthology products used: Colorations: Patience, Peachock Feather, Heart, Cinnamon Toast, Sangria Velvet: Mayan Gold Sorbet: Viridian
Hope you like my project and take care all of you! xoxo Marianne
