042816 CKC April "Gilded Lily" kit, page 4
Well, I've played along with all the CKC challenges this month,
but I have had a very old photo on my desk for awhile that begged to be scrapped.
Actually a photocopy, it still manages to perfectly capture the patina of the original.
This is my Great Uncle Ned who died almost 85 years ago of polio
when he was fifteen years old - my brother was named after him.
I used a simple white on kraft backing for my page to go with the sepia tones in the photo.
An old-fashioned ledger pattern covers the 8x8"paper that grounds the center,
and an overlay of cheesecloth softens everything & gives a wispy, ethereal feeling.
A simple embossed kraft chipboard butterfly adorns the top.
The tag in the waxed envelope contains a copy of his obituary.
It's funny - there are no dates - just a sweet blurb about him.
I copied the back as well as it had retro advertising on it.
It's in a little pocket so it can be removed & looked at,
and my journaling is on the back of the tag.
