Live Beautifully Heritage Layout, with painted flowers

I am totally loving the versatility of the Live Beautifully collection, and anytime I get to head into my craftroom to create I am pulling out this paper.  Our company has challenged us to create heritage style layouts.  So I decided to use a photo of my grandmother and the women in her family.

Here is my layout.

I distressed the mat and the papers used for this layout to give them that aged look.  I had some alphabet stickers left over from the Welcome Home Wreath kit, so decided to use those for my title.  My grandmother's maiden name was Young, and so I thought that was fitting for my title.  My grandmother is on the bottom, along side her twin sister.  My Great Grandmother is directly above her.

I've been asked how I created my flowers since they have a water color appearance.  I've shared a video that my daughter helped me with(it's my first technique shared video, so I'm sorry for the quality).

Thanks for stopping by and I hope I was able to teach you a new technique.
