Sentimental embellishments

I bought my Husband a watch for our first wedding anniversary nearly 27 years ago now. I picked it myself went and had the back engraved "All my Love Tracey" 22.3.87.  Well I could tell by the look on his face when he opened it that he didn't like it and of cause I couldn't exchange it as I had it engraved. So that was my lesson to never ever ever buy him a surprise. He nick named the watch BIG BEN and because I had bought a really good one, he couldn't kill it with a stick. It did eventually die about two years ago and my gorgeous friend Jo Kinder suggested I scrap it.  It has taken me a while and I have stepped out of my comfort zone with this layout and tried to channel the very talented artist Finnabair.

Here is my attempt at a mixed media layout.

I have constructed it on a 12 x 12 piece of chipboard so as it could take the colour sprays and the weight of all the metal pieces.


  1. Tracey - love the page, it is awesome. Love the colours as well.

  2. This is fabulous Tracey! The Finnabair influence is obvious and I love the colours.

  3. What a fabulous story and great idea to scrap, you have a gorgeous page now to remember it all.
