Sewing Scrapbook Page

I love to sew and I made this page to commemorate my love for sewing.  I had the Jolee's stickers sitting in my stash for a very long time.  I dug out these photos of my kids wearing the costumes I've made for them when they were little and also the pj's.  Not everything I've sewn for them is shown, but it is a nice representation of what I have made.

I took some garden green card stock and painted on it with white gesso.  Then I collaged the pattern papers on top of that, careful to not put any decoupage on top of the paper.  I matted all the photos with black cardstock.  The letters are from some alphabets I have from a Tim Holtz stash I have.  I dabbed some brown ink on them and dried it, then added green.  I adhered them with crystal effects and then brushed them with black ink to help them stand out better.  Finishing the page I rubbed black ink on all four sides of the paper.  I really enjoyed the process.
