Great-Grandmother Bjorg

My Icelandic Great-Grandmother Bjorg

For this layout I used a Riddersholm Design paper for the background.

Riddersholm Design - Barn Market - Worn

These are the dies and punch I used:

Prima - Parisian Lace
Lifestyle Crafts - Nesting Doily Rectangles
Martha Stewart - French Scroll

These are the chipboard pieces I used:

Dusty Attic - Corner Flourish #3
Dusty Attic - Fancy Trim #1

I heat-embossed both chipboard pieces with Ranger Antiquities Embossing Powder in the California Stucco colour and inked around the edges with Fawn Colorbox Chalk Ink.  I glued some Fuzzy Navel Prills to the corner flourish using Artquest's Perfect Paper Adhesive (PPA) Matte.  I poured some of the PPA into another bottle with a finer tip so I could apply it more precisely.

The roses are by Prima (Solid Rose, Blush Gold and Crown Gold).

Thank you so much for taking a look today!
