Hi! I'm Sarah, a 26-year-old woman from England. I love getting creative, be it with writing or graphic design, or using both to complement each other. I've made wonderful friends all over the world with my writing online, and I hope to make new ones through this site :)
Type of ProjectDigital Scrapbook Layout
I kept this simple as it will be an Xmas present for my 92-year-old Nan who lost her beloved husband 10 years ago. She loves photos, but her eyes aren't as good as they used to be, so I didn't want to detract too much from the pictures here.
I admire my grandparents so much and I tried to capture their essence. The army green and brass represents my brave grandfather. He served in WWII and was captured in Burma, a POW for several years in harsh conditions, later writing and publishing his memoirs.
The different purple hues are for my very 1940s grandmother, who loves the colour (even her engagement ring is a purple sapphire). I tried to bring in nature with the vintage overlay and the butterfly, as the garden has always been a passion of theirs, and my nan used to be a keen seamstress before she grew too old.
Elements used here are a mish mash. Some are my own, and others are modified designs from the wonderful girls here at pixelscrapper and SugarHillco.
Much love everyone, see you soon
