Hi! Over at pixelsandpaper  this month it's all about distressing. Check out this fab photo to help you with your inspiration.

This month I decided to go with a shabby style layout with lots of paper tearing, layering and inking.

I've added some soft gauze handmade roses, picked up at a local craft fair, and some beautiful vintage style velvet pansies, given to me from a close friend.
The black and white photo is a family grouping of the Chase/Davison Family. Seated, shows my Great, Great Grandmother (Esther Bowd), George Chase ( Great Grandfather), and Angelina Chase, my Great Grandmother. She was widowed when younger. Standing in the centre of the back row, is my Grandfather (Arthur Davison). He was the first child of Angelina and her first husband. The rest of the photo show his siblings.
I have added hidden journalling which can be revealed when you pull on the ribbon on the side of the photo.
Check out what the rest of the team has done with this month's challenge.

Catch you again soon.
Cheers, Di
