On this LO, the following techniques were used: wet distressed, folded, crackle painted, gathered lace, machine stitched and inked. The pp is Classic K by K and Company. For the title, I used a font called "Carbon Type" Interesting embellies are the old button in the lower, right corner. It is an antique from my DM's collection. Also, the authentic antique scrap in the lower right corner, is from the collection of my DGM (seen in the picture), and the lace was brought to me from Belgium over 30 years ago by my parents. You will also notice a "wax" seal in gold tones and a white crest-like object made by Melissa Francess.
The photo of my maternal grandmother was taken by my grandfather when they were courting, circa 1920. They were at a park and she was leaning over the water fountain to have a sip of water.
