I had recently got a copy of this really special picture of my Grandad in the Navy in WW2 (he’s on the far left), and I thought the suitcase and camera motifs in this collection would work well with with this photo, as well as the colours going with the classic sepia tone in the picture.
I added background stamping and embossing. I was particularly please with the copper embossed handwriting stamp on the blue door, the colours are so perfect together and make you think about writing home from far away.
I also brought in the AB Studio Crafters Bundle to add more embellishments to this layout, I thought the postcards looked particularly suited, so I used them to frame/back the photo.
I couldn’t think of any title for this layout, and I’m firmly of the belief that not all scrapbook layouts need a title, but I did want some words on the page, so I added a few (vaguely relevant!) Tim Holtz Clippings Stickers. The layout was finished with splatters in copper and brass, and then Copper Nuvo Drops.
