A Heritage of Bird Hunting (Scrapbook Page)

 
Having completed the 12 Tags of Christmas as my introduction to the Tim Holtz technique, I was determined to implement some of the vintage techniques into my scrapbook pages, as this is the primary “crafting” that I do.

I used the Tattered Leaves die and alcohol inks on kraft glassine for the leaves. When I saw Tim's idea of printing a photo on the glassine paper, I knew how I wanted to bring that element into this scrapbook page, as my old photo of Daddy with Pooch came to mind. The photo was very faded, so first I edited it to make it a more intense black and white photo. Obviously, due to the nature of the kraft glassine paper, the photo does not show up as well as it does in person. I am pleased with the effect and love the whole vintage idea of displaying a photo of my dad with his bird dog as an embellishment to the modern-day picture of my son with his bird dog.

I think your page came out great. I love the look of the old and the new. I've been wanting to try something with Kraft Glassine. Now you've given me inspiration.

I agree...your page turned out great! I love how you used the glassine to print the photo. Did you use an ink jet or laser printer to print the photo?

I think your page is perfect. I love the photo of your dad and the way it turned out. Glassine is one of my new favorites since this past 12 Tags!

I used an inkjet printer on the glassine. I think Tim said not to use laser because of the heat. Thanks for encouraging comments.
