Hope those of you celebrating enjoyed Halloween last night. We had a few trick-or-treaters 'round, but nowhere near as many as the past couple of years...
Anyways, on to this month's challenge at Rhedd's Creative Spirit! you know the drill by now, anything altered art goes. I took a set of wooden ATCs in a frame from Fernli Designs, and a DCWV paper pad, and this was the result:
The dashing gentleman in the frame? My grandfather. A wonderful man, and one of my favourite people in the world. I was originally going to use a random vintage image, but as I'd already decided I'd be keeping this myself, I figured "why not?" and made it that bit more personal by digging out an old photo.
It's hard to tell from the pictures, but there's a lot of detailing with a gold leaf pen (a Rustoleum one, which really does look like gold!), such as on the rose
The embellishments are from pretty much everywhere, but the majority are either Fernli or Tim Holtz.
The S and K charms are my kids' initials, to further personalise it a little.
And there you have it.
I hope you enjoyed my little bit of inspiration this morning. I am rather proud of it, and it'll be on display just as soon as I can get my hubby to help me put it up (as I can't reach, lol).
Hope you're having a fantabulous weekend!
