|Story:||These two are my older brothers, sitting in the front yard of our childhood home before I was even born. The eldest seems to be pleased as punch with the quarter he is showing off. Given his younger brother’s calm expression, he didn’t swipe it. (Not that he would do that.)|
|Style:||Can you believe I am using doilies on a page about little boys? Doilies are certainly nostalgic (think grandmother’s dresser scarves); so I think I got away with it. I misted both the wooden doily and the paper one, but one was porous and one was not – therefore, the end effect looks very different. I added the wooden doily later and did not mist it because it was darker. |
|Stash:||All this was from my August counterfeit kit except for the alphabets from October Afternoon & Fiskars/Cloud 9, the two brads from Stampin Up and the wooden doily from Kaisercraft. |
The scale of the alphabets in my kit just were not right. I often find that of all the supplies I gather for a kit, the proper alphabets are the hardest to anticipate. Are you good at guessing what kinds of letters you will need?
