WS: Growing old


A spread in my altered book made for the new WS challenge growing old, following up the children theme. Quite a hard one. I knew right away that it had to be these 3 grannies. I remember as a kid seeing a lot of grannies with pinkish or purpleish hair and thought how cool are they! Growing old should stand for pure fun and pleasure. The stamps are the usual suspects on my acrylic papers. *** Eine Doppelbuchseite in meinem Altered Book für die neue MS-Herausforderung Älterwerden, anknüpfend an das Kinderthema. Recht schwierig … Wußte aber gleich, dass ich diese 3 coolen Omis verwenden mußte. Als Kind hab ich oft Omis mit rosa und lila Haar gesehen und dachte, wie cool sind die denn! Älterwerden sollte eigentlich aus reinem Spass und Vergnügen bestehen! Die Stempel sind die üblichen Verdächtigen auf meinen Acrylpapieren.

What do elder people do just for fun 😉 watch the video … * Und was machen ältere Leute so aus Spass … schau Dir das Video an
