Mojoholder Challenge 116

This week's talented designer is the lovely Edleen Maryam. Check out her blog & gallery to see more stunning designs. I really loved the shape & the elements of this week's page & felt they needed a vintage treatment. So I picked these photos of historic areas of Grimsby. I was born in Grimsby & now live in Scunthorpe but I commute to Grimsby every day. Strange how you end up back in places you thought you had left behind forever. Both these places are within walking distance of the office too!!! As the journalling says, the Ice factory (top picture) was one of the places used to film Atonment. Corporation Bridge (lower photo) featured in a pop video for the duo Erasure. I love history & archaeology so being able to combine these interests with scrapping is fab.

Materials List;
Cardstock, Kraft.
Paper, 1959 Vintage Classified Page- Studio Calico
Stamps- Clearstamps Damask set-Kelly Panacci.
Ink - Adirondack Dye Pad, butterscotch. Rangers Distress ink - brushed corduroy.
Title - Making Memories tiny brown ledger "Historic"
American Crafts black fabric thickers "Grimsby"
Maya Road rub on calendar.
Bracket was drawn on using a pink paislee die cut as a template & a whispers black pen.
