Family Tree Words and Marion Smith Garment District

Maggi here to show you some great word chippies from Leaky Shed and on this layout I've used some from the Family Tree collection, "Families are Forever". I painted the chipboard pieces with Emperor's Gold Silks and then lightly brushed on a little Pink Grapefruit on the chippies and the flowers just to tie everything all together.

I used Marion Smith Designs newest collection, Garment District. It's full of vintage colors and images that I love so much! I even dug out my sewing machine to tie into the collection's title! I stamped here and there with some pink paint and coffee archival ink. If you look closely you can see that I used a doily mask and Lindy's mist.
