Masterboard Pages

Hi  Blogbits  just a few pages to show you what I have been up to with the family journal.
This photograph is of my father and his twin brother.
If you look closely you can see the star paper under the photograph which is why the picture looks a bit spotty but I like it, hope you do too.

Sorry about the slight glare, these were acetate scans of the original photographs then mounted on the top of the star stamped masterboard.
This photograph is of my grandmother and grandfather on their wedding day.

The frame was corrugated card, covered in Utee and then embellished with a flourish stamp and cut to shape with the Tim Holtz Cabinet Card Frame.
Apart from the border all of this is acetate.
  • The photograph was scanned, first on acetate and then placed over the masterboard and scanned again onto acetate which allows you to see the text through the photograph.
I hope that is clear? lol!

It would be possible to just scan all the stampboard sheets and just save the originals though I realise they are not quite as nice, as you miss out on some of the texture created. You could do both by scanning and then using the originals on something special.

Back soon Angela x
