Nanna's House

This is the second house for the Chunky Book Artist "My House" Swap. This page has become rather special as I used images of my family, garden & photos I have taken.
The lady on the left is my grandmother, as you can tell my the dress it is very old. On the right of the page is another image of her many years younger, nursing my mother with her older daughter sitting beside her.
The rockery garden was at the front of my parent's house many years ago. My own Nanna had a rockery when I was little so it is all relevant....to me!!
The heart punch is a scan of some of Nanna's crochet work, she was a prolific crocheter and that doilie is on my dressing table. the dragonfly, butterfly & tree are punched from photos I have taken.
The background is painted with Golden paints and put through the cuttlebug three times, the bottom part I used the spiders web as well as the distressed stripes.
Again the back of the page is less than average. the background I learnt at stamp camp from the fabulous Gail Hart and the verse is a very favourite of mine and I felt it was applicable to this page.
