I am so glad I have been able to create some art based on the challenges given to us by Linda at Studio L3! I have wanted to create this layout based on a technique I originally saw Tim Holtz do on the Carol Duval Show many years ago. And finally I have been able to do it.
My Auntie Judy came across these antique glasses in a very old case in my grandparents things. I knew when I saw them that this layout technique would show case them so well. My great grandfather could have been the one who actually wore them. I also received several other things from my aunt that were associated with this man that I never had the opportunity to know. For my 40th birthday, she gave me a garnet ring he had designed and made. He had given it to her and now she was giving it to me! I was thrilled and wear it every day. Not only did he make beautiful jewelry, but he also wrote a song which my aunt made a copy of and I reprinted it onto paper smaller so it would fit on my 12x12 page.
The page is created on 12x12 black foam core and the papers and embellishments used are from the Let Me Count the Ways Club Scrap kit.
