L is for Linda.

I scrapbooked two pages using photos of myself taken at our son’s wedding in 2007 by my husband.

Close up of hatpins that I made and lace.

Close-up of monogram, that I made with wire, crimping beads, beads, round nose pliers, wire cutters and a crimping tool. I made this while camping.

I used some of the hatpins that I made, which you can see here.

Close up of tag, flowers, bead and wire monogram, etc. I attached the monogram with hot glue and a glue-gun.
Hint: If you make a mistake with hot glue, just melt it off with a hairdryer, which also gets rid of the tendrils.

There is more information on the tag. I colored the white flowers with black die, then I sprayed them with homemade black alcohol spray, which turned out grey, lastly I sprayed them with Perfect Pearl, Perfect Pearls mist by Ranger.

Rubbing alcohol
 or isopropyl alcohol.  Should be used in a well-ventilated area due to inhalation hazards. Poisoning can occur from ingestion, inhalation, absorption, or consumption of rubbing alcohol.

Possible supplies gathered in a 13″x 13″ Iris container.

Some of the supplies and tools I used was:
Forever in Time Clear Cling Rubber Stamp Floral Swirl Border Corners Set.

  Patterned paper “Celebrations Memory block 4”, acrylic flourishes, Perfect Pearl, Perfect Pearls mist by Ranger, tag template, corner-punch,photo-corners, fabric flowers, hatpins, monogram, wire, beads, Lace, ribbon, hot glue, glue gun, a brad, card-stock, etc.

My inspiration was Snapshot of Michelle by Michelle Minken from Memory Makers Magazine August 2004.

I made my own HOMEMADE ALCOHOL INKS, which came out well, but the black came out grey. It is a very messy process, even when wearing gloves.

    Ek hou van die kleurkontras in die eeerste prent – die kleur van die foto steek mooi af teen die wit/grys/swart agtergrond. Is dit regte blomme wat sy so gekleur het?
