I created one 12″ x 12″ page using a photo of my grandfather . I have scrapbo0oked him before in “Games” and “Timeless“. Oupa is Afrikaans for grandfather. The tag has more information about the photo. My inspiration for the layout was “A moment in time” by Amanda Aveiro who blogs at Qween of the Crop. I scanned the layout using an Epson scanner.

Some of the supplies and tools I used were:Tissue paper, Plaid, Gesso, modge podge, a hairdryer, alphabet stencil, acrylic paints,Tag template, eyeshadow applicator, sticky notes, wood mounted rubberstamp, etc. I used the hairdryer to speed up drying time.
I fasten the clock pattern under card-stock, attached with pegs on to My Light-Box to do the hot glue clock on the card-stock. My glue gun is on a trivet at the back. Please note, do not use Hot glue for photos, the heat and acidity can harm your photos. I covered the glue with layers of acid-free paint. Nikon D70 ©

Photo from layout. My Paternal Grandfather. Jan Harmse Nieuwoudt Smit. (20.9.1894-1.10.1970) Circa 1969 Digital copy of a photo in my sister’s collection. My grandfather was the best grandfather one could wish for; he always wore a pocket watch, a pair of braces, a pocket-knife, a small Derringer revolver, handkerchief, a hat and a jacket. He used to visit us regularly for a few days, arriving by train and then playing board and card-games with me for hours. He was always very friendly and used to delight my friends and I with magic tricks as well.
