Oscraps

Me & Dad
Created For Personal Reasons : Also For The June 2022 : Challenge #5 : Heritage Layout Scrap

Hopefully I did this challenge correctly...I'm not usually a heritage scrapper...I've dabbled a bit over the years & it was actually how I started My digiscrapping journey over 12 years ago now...I have a good lot of photos I suppose...But most of them are pre-digital & require a lot of work to make look good...Time I generally don't have & I'm far from an expert on how to restore vintage photos...But this is one of my favorite photos of me & my dad...I have always wanted to restore it & create a special layout for him...But I knew it would be daunting task..Just for the photo alone...& I wanted it to be extra special too...I'm a bit of a perfectionist...No one would have guessed that...LOL!!!... ;)...So I have been working on this photo for weeks now this month...I was finally mildly happy with it a few days ago...So It was now time to find a kit/collection that would highlight the photo properly...I ended up picking up 6 collections from the Oscraps store...Not knowing what would work...if any...It turned out to be a bit of an exercise in patience...None of the collections were the right colors or shades to go with the photo...So I was like...now I have to recolor these too...more time & patience on my part...also another reason why I left it til the end of the month...Either way upon further study I found one collection that was close to what I wanted & how I wanted the layout to look...So I went about creating the page today...It took quite sometime also to recolor everything & get all the elements together & I had to create some of my own WA too...But I did use one of Vicki Stegall's wonderful! "Dad" WA's too...It was just the right finishing touch I thought & I turned it into a sticker too...After much deliberation...I thought It looked just the way I wanted it to...

The photo in question...is a photo of me & my dad from December 1970...I love the look on my face...I look like I have the look of wonder in my eyes & on my face...dressed up in my fancy lace dress!!!...this photo makes me smile & warms my heart...It means so much to me...It was very important to me to scrap this page & photo...IE...[Giving away my age here...I was 2 years old!!!...]...

Thanks for the challenge...xx Rhonda...

What a fantastic photo of you and your dad! I love the fantastic clustering around the photo. The background paper with the brushes add to the vintage look you have created. Thanks so much for joining the challenge.
