Featured Page - The Family Tree

This page was done on acetate for my mom's biography scrapbook. I took a piece of 8x8 acetate and painted it with Making Memories taupe colored paint. I thin stamped it was a light green paint and Hero Arts' K5165 French Country stamp. So, in a way, I made my own patter paper.

I lined my tree up how I wanted it (and how it would fit on the page), using the same green paint on the edges of the name blocks to give it a more finished look. To designate the couples, I used a small leaf punch to connect the name blocks.

Finally, I hand painted "the family tree" in the middle.


  1. Clever, I like what you have done! I look forward to following and seeing more!

  2. I love this! Are those the names on cardstock?
