Explore - Memory Sparks and Photos as embellishments - Just a quickie !!

I've added a few more pages to my playbook -

 I wrote down one memory sparked by 2 boys with buckets knocking on my door on Sunday asking to wash my car..
 We also had to re-size some photos and make and old  look frame round them to replicate the look of old viewfinders! I couldn't find anything similar so I ended up inking the edge of the photo. I quite like the result :)

Writing reads "this is Peevor Tin mine museum nr Redruth, Cornwall"
{What a view?}

And here Shimelle challenged us to write on our photos. I was a bit apprehensive about this (probably a hang-up from the old days when photos were precious special occasion memories) but actually I loved the way the pen wrote on the glossy paper and I think the result is quite effective.


  1. I love this post and you have really inspired me to get my playbook out and play!! I have been uninspired and needed this prompt to see what I can do.
    This is my first visit to your blog and I will be back for more. Have fun and enjoy Exploring!

  2. Lovely! This is coming along so well, Karen.

  3. Well done on being brave with writing on the photos, I like doing it in ps but I am a bit worried about doing it and making a mistake.

    Lovely work, I need to catch up now.
