Treasured Memories – Joanne Simons

Hello creatives!  I hope you are well and happy.
I’m sharing with you today a layout showcasing a photo of my dear mum and my sometimes dear daughter celebrating her 18th birthday!

I started my layout by making a focal embellishment for the left hand side of my page.  This was just my starting point.

I wanted something to run down the side of my photo. I cover the chipboard pieces in pigment inks clear embossing powder and then added some gold wax to the little frame.   I also changed the flower as I wanted to add a whole heap of them.  
From this I then added the cog border strip underneath he whole embellishment.  I then decided to add more cogs to create a bit of a sweeping effect across my page. 
I used Nuneka’s beautiful cogs for this and I covered them with Prima Old Walls rust effects.  To be totally honest I don’t really even know if this effect is how it is supposed to turn out as its been sitting in my cupboard for years and looked a little dry, but I got it to work and I like the effect so I guess thats all that matters right???
I will leave you with a few close ups.
