Craft Artiste Mixed Media Challenge Blog August DT Post

I've been busy scrap booking again this month, continuing with my family history album and this page is my DT inspiration  piece for the challenge over at Creative Artiste Mixed Media Challenge Blog.

This month we are kindly sponsored by Maja Design. Their papers are just beautiful so do take a look. 

I have given my page a vintage look. using lots of distress ink and my new favourite distress oxides. I can't wait for the next batch of colours to be released! They are so much fun to work with. The frame is one I have had a while, which I sprayed with shimmer spray. It worked perfectly with this gorgeous photo of my Great Auntie and her husband. I love vintage photographs so much. They all seemed to have such style back then. How I would have loved to live in such an elegant looking time. 

I hope I've inspired you to join in our challenge yourself. Anything goes as long as it is mixed media so lots of scope to play. 

I am entering this page in the following challenges:
