Treasures preserved with Resist Embossing

Recently I was blessed to be give these old photo album's that haven't been seen in a LONG TIME!!! For a scrapper this is like lost TREASURE re-found!!!! I was tickled to see photos of family that I had never seen before and some people I have no recollection of meeting.  So to say the least this was an unexpected surprise.  So please feel free to stop back from time to time to see my journey to get these family treasures off the old acid based books into some that are archival safe.My 1st of MANY pages was this oldie but goodie of my family before I was born.  If I had to guess I'd say this photo was from early in 1976 judging by the age of my brothers.  Notice the blouse my mother is wearing ... it has butterflies on it so I guess this obsession I have comes honestly : ) 

Here is another example of resist embossing.  This time instead of daubers I used the NEW Shin Han markers to color the embossed area of the tree and family sentiment to make them appear to POP off the paper.  For this layout I used the stamp of the month Family is Forever, Yuletide paper pack, Shin Han Markers, and black cardstock.  I love the versatility of the Yuletide paper pack to be useful for more than just holiday layouts this looks nothing like Christmas to me.  To check out more favorite techniques follow this link to H2H
