Grandpop - a memorial layout for April ARTastic challenge

Here is a challenge from ARTastic for April 2021. Take inspiration from this painting. The criteria to add is remembrance with the colour red.

The painting is by Evelyn Chapman with "French ruins with poppies"

My Grandfather recently passed away, a lovely Italian gent, my Mum's Dad. I've created this layout about him and I'm going to journal about my memories of him, but I've chosen to keep them private on this occasion.

Here is my layout.

Hope you will join in the challenge. Go to this link - ARTastic.

Yay! card for Archiscraps' April challenge

Hi there.

Challenge time again. A fun one. Be inspired by this image and use pleating technique.

Staircase inside the St. Pancras Hotel, London 1880’s.

I made a card.

I chose a patterned paper from a 6x6" paper pack. 

I used a scorer and my Creative Memories trimmer to score the paper evenly cross-ways.

Then, it was a simple matter of pleating the paper.

I added some double sided paper on the back to hold the pleats together. I also added some underneath the front pleat folds to hold those down.

Lastly, I added it to my cardstock. I chose another paper from the same pack, added some ribbon, a tag and made a little flower bouquet in matching colours.

This card could be used for many occasions. Handy to have.

Thanks for looking.
