Hi Scrapper Friends. Well, here's my layout for April! I call this one "Ol" Brownie". This photo was taken in Dodson, Texas at my Uncle Oliver and Aunt Jerry's old place. The horse was my uncle's and from what I was told, he was very gentle. My mom is holding me in her arms and my sister and brothers are on Brownie. What's funny is Brown is my maiden name. I almost titled this "The Browns on Ol' Brownie"! :-) I left the border of the picture on it because it has the date and studio where it was developed and I thought that was interesting.
My husband gave me the arrowheads awhile back. The leather piece was from a hatband my son Sam took off one of his cowboy hats. All the buttons are from Mom's old button collection.
This was the first time I'd ever used texture paste! I finally got around to making some using Gabrielle Pollacco's tutorial...thank you Gabi! It was also a first time for me of using eyelets and lacing, also inspired by Gabrielle. The paper rolling in the corners is something I always admired about Rachelle's (Rachie Babe) style so thought I would try that out.
I got out all the supplies I wanted to use on this plus made a list of techniques I wanted to use also. Cheesecloth was the only item in my supply list I ended up not using! The Prima rubber stamp was from my dear friend Marylou! Thank you!
