A Vintage Page with Rhonda

Greetings and welcome to the UmWowStudio blog today!  It's Rhonda here to share my project with you.

I've been wanting to scrap this photo of my father and his sister for the longest time. When I found it again going through photos the other day, I really wanted to celebrate it.  There aren't a ton of photos of my Dad from his youth, so these are very special to our family.

I used some papers with a sepia type of feel to them. Once I selected my papers, I chose my chipboard embellishments that would fit the feel of the page. The Doilies chip was covered in a chocolate pearlescent product.  The Soar Tab was coated in gesso, then touched with a variety of pearlescent product to give a variegated feeling and match the photo.

Don't you just love those doilies?!!!

A bit of background stamping and ink droplets with a bit of cheesecloth helped pull the page together.  When I was done stamping, I added bits of Mica to the areas to create a bit of shine and texture.

What's your favorite way to honor those special photos? Thanks so much for stopping on over today!

  1. I can say I really love your layout, how you choose the papers which are perfect with this cute picture. Work on background is awesome and I love the masks especially the butterfly one, and this flair too. thanks for sharing because I am not a fan of vintage style, and now I think about old pictures of my mum-in-law......
