My Grandmother-Practical Scrappers Flower Challenge
My grandmother will turn 91 this month so I chose her as my subject for the Practical Scrappers challenge this week. The challenge was to use flowers. I started with a vintage photo of Grandma at 20, found a great older sketch from SOUS, and chose Sassafras Lass Life is Beautiful-Felicity paper. I thought the bold purple and red were a great match with the old picture. The flowers were hand pieced with different cuts from Walk In My Garden and George. I added a rhinestone to the center of each and used some glitter glaze to some of the petals for sparkle. To finish the sketch, I framed the picture with an 8" circle, purple ribbon, and a metallic black border cut with the MS doily punch.
