Kaisercraft Sketch #2 (3-13)

Posting my latest LO for Kaisercraft (Saturday Sketch Challenge #2).  The photo is a copy of the 1920 original.  My great-grandfather is holding my aunt who was his first grandchild.  Obviously a cute picture, it's even sweeter when you know Grandfather was, by all accounts, a very stern, no-nonsense man.  His job as a police officer probably had a lot to do with that.



I used a mix of Kaisercraft paper lines, but the colors still worked well together. Maybe even gruff Grandpa would like it!

Enjoy!

  1. What a lovely way to keep a family history, and so special for your aunt (assuming she is still alive), and if not for her, for the rest of the family... a pretty way of looking at things as opposed to s "straight forward" photo album! Cheers~

  2. He does look like a serious kind of guy. I love your treatment of the photograph, very vintage feeling, like those lovely old albums that place flowers near photos.
