This post is a continuation from yesterday of my family history book, done on Craft Artist. My grandparents had eight children, so I will show you page 13 which shows the first two of their children (but I have removed vital information as it relates to living people). Pages 14 and 15 detailing the next six of their children are in exactly the same format.
Page 16 is one of my favourite pages in the whole book.
This shows my father, his siblings and his mother during World War II. I made the background using old scanned documents and army photographs of my father, reducing the opacity. I then overlaid the whole page with a Union flag from one of Daisytrail's free digikits - British Street Party - and again reduced the opacity. I exported the page as an image and then brought it back in and made it into a background so that it would snap into place. I found the Second World War medal on the internet and cut it out using the Cutout Studio.
And of course no family history book worth it's salt would be without wedding photographs so pages 17 and 18 show the weddings of my parents and my aunts and uncles.
To end this section of the book I inserted a page showing group photographs of my father and his siblings taken at various times over the years and I couldn't resist adding the white rabbit from the My Craft Studio "A Very Important Date".
Which brings me to my generation and another different style of page. Pages 20 and 21 were both done in this way but as they relate to living persons I have removed vital information and just left the year the photos were taken. I will show you page 20.
I made the background of this page using a Funky Hand backing paper and I used the stencil facility to make the mats and shape the photographs to fit. I also made the tags, but the ribbons and flowers were Daisytrail embellishments.
The white rabbit makes another appearance in page 22
I think this background came from a digikit and I simply layered up a selection of photographs from the childhood of me and my cousins with more recent photographs of us together.
And finally for today's post is page 23, entitled "The Cousins' Kids".
I tried to make pages in as many different styles as possible in order to keep interest so I hope you will think that I succeeded in that. Tomorrow I will post the final pages I want to share with you.
