Grandpa Layout using May Uniquely Creative Kit

Not the greatest photo, but this layout is very special about my Grandpa, and I enjoyed creating this layout with all the wonderful cogs and burlap, corrugated card and cork. Uniquely Creative May kit is great for feminine or masculine layouts, and I loved everything in it.
I made a fold out section using the photo as I had a small book from my Grandpas funeral and some newspaper clippings I wanted to include.
This is a really great way to include memorabilia but not have it on show.
Some machine stitching added because I like the look ! Plus it adds interest. I painted the cogs with watercolour paint and also the corrugated card was painted with watercolours. I used the Wonky Punchinella die to cut out cork behind the burlap banner.
That cork is awesome to use with a die.
I hope this inspires you to use cork on your layouts, its my new favourite thing! I used the Uniquely Creative Cork Alphabet for the title and also the Giant Outline Numbers Die. So many different ways you can use the numbers dies as you get the outline and the solid numbers, I love them!
