Two New Mixed Media Scrapbook pages . . . by Sharon!

by Sharon Fritchman

Hi everyone!  Today I would like to share two of my newest mixed media scrapbook pages!  I am very excited about all of the beautiful new “flower and leaves” products out at Scrap FX this month and will be showing you exactly what I used on my pages.

This month, since I just acquired my mom’s old photo albums, I decided to make scrapbook pages about my mom and dad.

For my first page, entitled “Embrace the Moment,” I used a wonderful photo of my mom taken at the Lehigh Parkway in Allentown, PA, USA, in 1947.  She was so beautiful back then and I love the suit she was wearing!

Here is my page:

I used these chipboard pieces that I heat embossed with white embossing powder and embellished with garnet-colored glitter:

Branchlets:

Arching Flowers:

Almond Leaves:

Moment Flower-small

I also used some black pieces from the 3D Flower Making Transparency:

And a phrase from the Art Words Transparency:

To make my background, I started with maroon-colored paper and stenciled with the Flourish Panel Stencil:

I stamped the background with the Scribble Rose Stamp:

The stamping is subtle, but you can see it if you look closely.

I added flowers, touches of garnet colored glitter, and white paint splats, too.

Here are some close-ups:

For my second page, entitled “Remember to Celebrate Family,” I used a favorite photo of my dad holding my little sister when she was 13 month old.  We were at a picnic that was being held at my cousin’s home.  The photo was taken in 1970:

And here is my completed page:

I used the following chipboard pieces, that I heat embossed with off-white embossing powder and embellished with gold glitter:

Heart Flowers:

Celebrate Circle:

Family Flower – Small:

Remember Flower – Large:

For my background, I started with wood colored patterned paper and stenciled with the Rose-Bud stencil:

I used some of the black pieces from the 3D Flower Making Transparency:

I added touches of gold glitter and paint splatters, too.

Here are some close-ups:
