Child of the 60!s



This is a layout I did awhile ago ,but still love it so much it is a photo of me in my younger days and wanting to work the era this fancy pants paper worked so well with the prima whisper flowers and matched that groovy dress I had ROFL!! I then wanted to recall a few things from my childhood ,but had to cut it a little short I mean what an era this was,I then put my wording onto acetate and then embossed it in black to create an overlay whilst not detracting from the beautiful paper, I was pleased with the result, TIP #if working with acetate get a dry used tumble dryer sheet and rub all over acetate first this stuff has amazing static properties and I find if you do this first before print then you do not have much embossing powder stick,the little bit which does just remove with a fine brush before turning that heatgun on,it also works great if using glossy cardstock also

Gee, Rose! I love this layout! The way you journaled about all the things '60s! And weren't you a beautiful young lady! I'm so glad you posted this again, gives me an idea of what has shaped and guided your life.
Super job with the embossing. My heat gun would just melt the acetate! Don't know how you do it!
Thanks for hanging with me the past few hectic days!
Hugs,
Liv
