Grain stencil.

Hello friends and welcome here.
First I want the grain stencil why I did not have the opportunity to use since I bought. There are many some like tools and embellishments that was excited when I bought them. They have a need to shed the spotlight!! Lol.
I used the grain stencil by clear embossing powder onto the 8tag. Then it was cool down I used Ground Espresso and Black Soot Distress Stain.
Also I stamped PA Lynne Perrella's lady and some Lin Brown's flower stamps onto the White Stamping Paper and Black paper by Fresco Paints. I then did to paint and fussy cut them. I made some embellishments with Prima mold, when it dried I painted. I stuck everything onto the 8tag. Finally I added TH's Chat Stickers.

Thank you so much dropping by, see you soon.

PaperArtsy Topic #8 'Effective White Space' and my entory.

Hello friends and welcome to here.
First, thank you so much for the many warm comments in Kumamoto earthquake.
I'm very glad about thinking of us.

Over on the PaperArtsy challenge blog this fortnight topic is 'Effective White Space' and I was very inspired by Justine and her card. Her card is very simple and great constitution and beautiful images, also colours too. The site is here.

Step one:  I used Gelli Plate 3"x5" ( love this size ) then I put Fresco Bubble Gum, Bougainvillea and Coral onto the Gelli Plate. Extended the paint I stamped EEV02 and EEV08 circles onto the Gelli Plate too. Then it pressed on the White Stamping Card 240g.

Step two:  I made the background card by  White Stamping Card 340g 8" x  5 1/2" and it was folded in two. I tore the painting paper and glued onto the card then I stamped same circle stamps to added the side. Finally I stamped ELB28 Lin Brown's sentiment by Archival jet black and added Tim Holtz's some die.

Thank you so much stopping by.
Have a wonderful day.

These are my mum's old photos, my grandpa was ship design engineer at Yokosuka Japan and my grandma's family was owner of restaurant at the same place. After while they met the restaurant and his superior arranged them then married. They had three daughter but eldest daughter was dead 17. When he retired and he ordered his designed a blending of Japanese and Western styles house in Tokyo. That is left page's house photo. Later he built another houses twice in Tokyo but family has moved to Osaka by the second world war. This right photo was a taken at the entrance to the first house. From the front row light, mum, her older sister, her cousin and son. From left in the back, grandpa and grandma. My mum was shy and aunt was vibrant as can be seen from the photo, they were very good relationship in their lifetime.
