Capture the Moments with Basic Grey ~ FotoBella DT

It was definitely happy mail for me when I got the new Basic Grey Spice Market I want it all bundle from FotoBella! That same day I also got this old photo from my Mom, of my Grandma, who passed away last year, and my son, who was just 2 or 3 years old. It was a perfect match with this fabulous bundle of goodies!

I took my inspiration from sketch #110 @ sketchabilites.

I started by stamping the background using Prima's Script stamp. Then I dripped some aqua paint over it and splattered a little on top. To mimic the pattern of the chair in the photo, I used some gesso and Prima's Netting Stencil onto black cardstock. I also used Prima's stitching stamps for the circles. 

The aqua flowers were already made using my Tattered and Torn Flower Tutorial. Thanks for looking!
