Just Add Ink Challenge 76


Another challenge for Just Add Ink this week for which I am a guest designer for the month of July. This week it is a photo challenge, and it was quite a challenge. Here is the photo:

I decided to do a scrap book page using a photo of my Nan (in law), who passed away on June 16. Although I had only known her for a couple of, I believe that we bonded instantly and it wasn't long before I was calling her Nan and felt comfortable doing so. I have always lived a great distance from my grandparents so Nan was the closest thing that I had to a grandparent so her passing hit me quite hard. Here is my page:

I used water colouring, with an aqua pen to create the back ground and some bleach in another aqua pen to create the clouds.

I think that it was good therapy for me to complete this page and I am quite pleased with the result.


  1. This is a very special tribute to someone you have loved. The soft colours in the back ground suit the photo beautifully. A very special page for you to keep ♥

  2. What a beautiful page and a lovely way to remember someone so special. Thanks for joining us again as a Guest DT.

  3. Beautiful and very touching scrap page Kim. You've captured the colours of your Nan's photo and the spirit of the inspiration pic. Well done!

  4. I do so much love this page Kim! It's sooo soft and warm and simply wonderful in every way Especially as a memory of your Nan!
    SMiles and hugs SHarnee :)

  5. A truly lovely tribute Kim, a beautiful pic and a very peaceful layout!

  6. I am sorry for your loss. This is a beautiful tribute to her.
