Lest We Forget - A Heritage Scrapkit


A little bit of my heart went into these pages which I dedicate to those members of my family who served in our forces and to those others, too, who lost their loved ones.

There are two background pages which coordinate...one a little plainer than the other.

Various other bits and pieces which I thought you might find useful, including some Australian army buttons, an old scrappy lined text block paper, 2 text overlays and a "cardboard" backing suitable for a photo.
Also 2 bookmarks which you could include in a page design or print separately.
I have made these so you can include text or an image to embellish. They are also easy to cut out :) and would look good with an added ribbon or tassle. They are both the same size so you can use the images back to back if you wish. I would use card of about 200gsm and finish your edges with an archival quality gold pen.

Batik Browns Scrapbook Pages

Click to Enlarge These 3600 X 3600 papers, I thought, could be used for heritage or contemporary pages in an album.
They will also match quite well with the pages and elements of my Vintage Batik Kit.. as you can see below.

The papers can be downloaded HERE

Vintage Batik Scrapbook Pages

click to enlarge These background pages grew out of another project as so often happens :)

I love the multilayered look of many batik designs, where one pattern overlays another in the process of dyeing the material and it was this look that I was trying to create for a series of papers. These two papers seemed to be the "odd one outs" and took on a life of their own.

Lots of trial and error later, I had put together the other elements.

If you have seen me use these colours before, it is because I find that they suit many of my old photos, both sepia and black and white. Of course you may find they look better recoloured for your project.

The two pages will also form a conntinuous image when placed side by side, a look I rather like in my album.

October Roses Heritage Album Pages

CLICK TO ENLARGE

It is worth clicking on the image above to see more detail in this scrapkit.
Although I really designed these papers and elements to compliment my old 1920's photos,
most would suit photos of any era :)

To make for easier downloads I have separated the kit into two zips.


CLICK TO ENLARGE

The 5 background papers are all 3600 X 3600 .jpg and can be downloaded HERE

The other elements, 2 frames, a photo mount and it's darker background, a journalling block,and 2 roses elements are in .png and .jpg format. They can be downloaded HERE
These papers etc will also tone in quite well with some of my "OTHER KITS" kits if you would like to mix and match.

If you like what you see or have any suggestions, I'd love to hear, ...just leave a message here or in my guestbook.

We have just revamped our graphics gallery on fotki with new cards and a new look, why don't you pop in and download some cards to send to your friends, and maybe let them know where to find an e-card for most occassions. :)

A Botanical Rose Desktop Wallpaper

click to enlarge I used a lovely old rose illustration by the wonderful rose artist Alfred Parsons [for book "The Genus Rosa" (1910-1914) by Ellen Willmott] for my inspiration for this desktop wallpaper which is a little reminiscent of old botanical prints. By clicking on the image above, you will bring up a larger image wereby you can also get a better idea of the textured background I have created.
As usual I made several sized versions to suit most screens which you can download by clicking on the image below.
