Order of the hop is as follows:
I'm going to share one of my Grace layouts from this month's kit! This is my favorite one from this month...
This layout was the first one I did with the kit and felt that this photo was perfect for the colors and embellishments in this kit! The vintage photo is of my maternal Grandmother who I called Nana. She was a beautiful bride! I found these photos in a pile of extra photos from my grandfather's albums when he passed away. It was like I hit treasure when I found them! I was struck with the grace of her look and dress. They got married very soon after they met. My grandfather was in the Army and was a ranking officer when they met through mutual friends and they made a beautiful couple. I always idolized my Nana and her southern grace. She was from Texas and grew up with little money but a lot of love! Her family was very close and they were extremely crafty and artistic. I'd like to think I got my artistic interests due to her and my Mom. She had great taste, even if it did travel to a more feminine appeal than I like, and she was always dressed well and generous with her love!
I fussy cut the flowers and used pop dots to raise them up in areas. I also used the tulle ribbon to add feminine touches under the photo. The mistables were perfect to add a bit of color when misted with Glimmer mists. I love all the spring-like colors and feminine feel to this kit!
This layout doesn't have much journaling because the photo speaks to me of grace and love... isn't that what this kit is about? I used some droplets of the spray mist to embellish the paper and sanded the embossed shapes to bring them out. The hexagon shaped chipboard stickers were perfect to fit into the shapes. I used them sparingly to just give a hint of design and color.Tell me what GRACE means to you..
