Page 8 of Album 2, 70's Princess!


This has come out a tad brighter than planned but I am busy playing around with my new camera.
This page was quite quick to make as I knew the exact photo I wanted to use.
It is of me taken some time early 1970's and my Aunt Cherry, mum's sister
 had come round to put my hair in a bun.
Must have been going to a party or something, but I still remember the day
because I felt so pretty.
 
Materials Used:
Scenic Route Paper- Brook-hurst Street, Garden Grove & Joy Street
(scraps left from SC Jul 2009 Documentary Kit)
TH Tag & Bookplate Die - Tag inked & then embossed Papermania Clocks.
Distress Inks; Squeezed Lemonade/ Festive Berries/Ripe Persimmon/ Spiced Marmalade.
Tickets Die - Papermania
Alpha dies - TH Chipblock
Flowers, buttons & brad - from my stash
 
I spent 10 days in Newcastle upon Tyne with my sister, been back home a week.
Washing machine blew up days before I went new one coming soon.
Camera been playing up a while so got a new one while up there.
Visited Holy Island & could not have my camera die!!!
I shall keep the old one for around the home but my new one
will take its place for photos once settings mastered!
 
Photo is quite poor as it was taken at least 41/42 years ago.
Thought how that can be I don't know with me just 21 ;0)
I took a photo of it as scans usually come out too dark.
