Good morning everyone, it's a really wet horrible grey day here in Somerset, but at least it gives me an excuse to stay in and craft!
Anyway over at Crafty Boots Challenge Blog a new challenge is launching today and the theme was picked by the lovely Bev, who chose REMEMBER. A very appropriate theme considering it was Remembrance Sunday yesterday.
So we want to see your cards, tags, art, journals, whatever you choose as long as it has the theme of Remember.
Right my DT project is a little different perhaps, but very personal to me -
You'll have to click on the pictures if you want to read the details.
This memory/family history page relates to my 2nd cousin 2x removed. My 3x great grand father is Joseph Edwin's great grandfather. I found out about him through my family history research. I started searching maybe 8 years ago and spent 4 years of none stop research, I even volunteered and transcribed part of the 1861 census for an on-line project. To date this is my only relation who died during the first world war, Joseph died while fighting as a Bombardier with the Royal Garrison Artillery. I felt the theme of Remember was a perfect opportunity for me to do something with my research instead of keeping it in a file. I do plan to create more pages with the information I have, and believe me, I have so much!
The poppies are Sheena Douglas's Paint Fusion stamps which I stamped using Distress inks onto watercolour card. They are coloured using the inks, after they had dried I did use my Copic markers to define the lines.
I kept it simple - a relationship chart to show how we are related along with the details I gained from the CWGC who have information relating to service.
I hope you find this interesting and that you'll join our challenge this fortnight.
Take care Zo xx
