More Than Words "Yesterday and Vintage"... with video tutorial

Hello dear blog readers,

on the blog from More than Words is the August challenge now online.

Yesterday and Vintage...

Here is the link to our blog: morethanwords
and all the other stunning DT member inspiration.

Word Inspiration - YESTERDAY
Creative Challenge - VINTAGE

What does the word YESTERDAY inspire you to create?
You can choose to use the actual word somewhere on your project 
or simply be inspired by it.  Since words are an integral part of our challenges, we want to know how this month's word stimulated your creative process, so please do explain in your blog post how 
it inspired you if it isn't obvious in your work.

We're heading back in time this month with a VINTAGE creative challenge. Think sepia or black and white photos, subdued colours and gorgeous textures. The vintage style evokes a sense of history with images and elements associated with a forgotten (or unforgotten thanks to the wonderful hobby of scrapbooking) past. You might like to use an old photograph, a patterned paper with an antique look or an old-fashioned embellishment on your project. Look back to the past for your inspiration!

My Mother...

Such a beautiful challenge. I created a special size layout for my sons (Joshua) photo book.

On the photo is my mother also Joshuas granny.

Unfortunately she is no longer with us, and sadly, I do not have many photos of her.

This is one of few that we still have after a water damage in our house.

The sepia photo incorporates the Vintage creative challenge

and the word Yesterday is handwritten on the page.

Here are our challenge rules.

I also made a background video tutorial.

I used for this layout:

Distress Ink, victorian velvet, broken china and pine needles.
The Crafters Workshop Stencil.
Tim Holtz stencil 106.
Lindys spray, Chateau Rose, Bodacious Blush.
Lindys embossing powder, cosmic blue and Chateau Rose.
Prima Light Paste.
Gouache raw umber.
Ranger Archival Ink coffee.
Versafine Ink.
Hobby Shop Sandra stencil.
Hero Arts stamp happy days.
LaBlanche stamp Augenblick.
Tim Holtz bingo stamp.
Marianne design girl stamp.
Canson water color paper.

As embellishments and layering I used:
old vintage paper,
handmade flowers,
Memory Box DIE cutting.
Sequin, glass glitter, glitter, mica flakes, micro beads,
Pentart gold paste.
Vintage stickers.

That can youre prize!!

I hope you have a beautiful August month.
