Treasured Moments

Treasured Moments

This layout holds a special place in my heart. This is a picture of my good friend Leni back Frankfurt Germany, 1950-ish. I lived with Leni during my young adult life. She was a influential role model, so much so, my daughter and her share the same middle name. IMG_8572

This is a perfect layout for the More Than Words May Challenge.

Word Inspiration – MOMENT

Creative Challenge – CLOCKS

This is one “Moment” in time and a precious memory. One of the many memories both happy and sad. We would spend hours talking about life, living in Germany during the war, and men. She told you exactly how it is.


The challenge was to use clocks and the word “Moment”. I used Prima’s Vintage Trinkets #960285.


I painted a coat of white gesso on the trinkets and then layered with some art alchemy silver and dabbled some LSG spray on.


I used some Shimmerz Tarnished Treasure and add some shadows to the layering of the paper.


This saying is so true. Leni opened her world to me, more than most people in her life. I will forever be grateful to her.


Thank you for stoping and sharing this memory.


In loving memory of

Leni Sofie Gran

March 1st 1922-July 6th 2015
