Old vintage photo of my grandma



Mama

I found a very old and torn vintage photo of my maternal grandma washing clothes in the 1950s. A little Photoshop touchup and it's good to go! :)


I used the sketch at Let's Capture These Sketches. Also entering it for the ribbon challenge at Frosted Designs.

Supplies: Lily Bee patterned papers, Jenni Bowlin buttons and letter stickers (red), Heidi Swapp chipboard letters,  Gauche Alchemy lave and punchinella, SRM stickers, EK Success sticker, Sam and Lucy stickers, Martha Stewart punch, paper blooms, bling, ribbon and pearls.

I'm so impressed that you managed to make a bold and colorful layout but still keep a tiny b/w photo the focal point. Awesome job.
