4 Generations

I was asked by my father to make them a scrapbook album of their trip to California for my niece's baptism. This is the 1st page that I have made so far. It is called '4 Generations' and features a photo of my older sister, mom, my baby niece, and my grandmother.
This was made with the May Scraps of Darkness kit which I love so so much! I made the flowers myself. Honestly this page came about very quickly. I think because it has been floating in my head for so long. I have to honestly say that I have not had a page come together so easily in a while. Here are some closeups

This was my first time using gesso as well. I have now decided that I love it. I also created this for the ARTastic Challenge for May which can be found here. I worked #s 1 and 3 into my page for extra points.

I will have the tutorial for the flowers up in a little bit! TFL!!
