Whimsical Family Tree

Project Description

What are you most proud of? That I still like it to this day, a great great feat for me and that it pleased my father. And that was no easy feat, outwardly! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Think whimsical and not seriously. Do you have a person in mind for this project? Think of the people that affect that person in a positive way and how they might put a smile on that person's face. Find colors, prints, etc. of papers that you love and use them with those people. Use whatever else excites you or makes you enthusiastic such as glitter or the new things like the tinniest of gold glitter balls made by Martha Stewart that you can glue (clear) on a project. Or the other newer embellishments that Michael's and A.C. Moore has now. You may need to just window show slowly one day to see what's out there, new.

What you will need

  • Scrapbooking decor papers
  • markers
  • family photo copies
  • large picture framing
  • Strangely enough I usually have many empty frames available on hand. I made this for my father's hospital room and he seemed to enjoy the conversations it always started up.

Love it! And that you made it for your dad.

Thank you. The ideas came easily and quickly since I guess he was in the hospital.
