Grandma

Made this for my grandma’s memorial (then gave it to my mom). This is her at 16 years old (~1945).

I used a door off the top half of a (I think) desk hutch. Anyway, I use the hutch in my scrap room, but the doors were only in my way so I removed them (a while ago), sprayed them with some Kilz Primer spray to give the (homemade) texture paste something better to stick to, layered up the texture paste then added Kilz Primer (because it’s white matte) on top.

For the photo mat I coated some heavy chipboard in some acrylic paint & Shimmerz AcriTonez then used Prima Crackle Texture paste and a rose stencil cut file from the Silhouette Store and some white ribbon at the border of the photo.

Products Used:

  • Prima Texture Paste: White Crackle
  • Silhouette Cameo
  • Homemade texture paste (because I was going to be using A LOT!)
  • white ribbon
  • mulberry roses
  • Shimmerz Paints: Paste-eez – Salt of the Earth & AcriTonez – 3 Sheets to the Wind
  • white matte acrylic paint
  • Kilz Primer spray
