This is such a lovely photo of my husband and granddaughter Kenzie.  We were in Port Boliver, Texas and after eating dinner that night we stepped out unto their deck and we were watching the beautiful sun setting!  My daughter-in-law took this photo of them just talking with the sun and water in the background.  It really seems to be so cool and calm and gave me a sense of peace and quietness.

I found old Halloween paper for the background and then used another one that I also have had for awhile.  I cut out using Martha Stewart punch.  I sewed around the paper added the cut out paper and then distressed it with Tim Holtz ink.  I also used embossing paste with a floral templet and added that to the scroll at the bottom left.  I then added paint and pearls to the scroll.  I added lots of flowers plus netting and Gesso paint.  I then found some white beads and glued those into place.

Here is a list of items that I used:

SEI - Salem Heights Collection - Hallows Paper
The Paper Studio - Woven Natural Fibers Papers
Studio 490 - Embossing Paste - Metallic Gold
The Leaky Shed - Scroll Corner
The Paper Studio - Flowers, Large Butterfly Punch
Martha Stewart - Arch Lattice Punch, Small Butterfly Punch
Tim Holtz - Distress Ink - Vintage Photo
White Beads
Gesso Paint
Sea Shells

Thank you for looking!
