La Goulette, 1937 | Alexandra Sirugue-MacLeod

6 x 12 | materials cardstock (Bazzill) + water color paper, paint, calligraphy ink (Winsor & Newton) + ink pads (Hero Arts, Colorbok) + stamps & dies (Papertrey Ink)

A Note from Alexandra
This 6x12 lay-out came together with very little effort. I have been going through a lot of my Dad’s childhood pictures and was drawn to this one where he sits between his parents on that well-known beach of Tunis in North Africa. What helps me tremendously when I begin a page is having all of my embellishments well sorted in individual glassine envelopes right in front of me. I added some tissue paper to add dimension to the page.

July Fun Fact
I can touch my nose with my tongue!
