My favorite Uncle died last week. He was my last connection to parents generation. And he's been my "father" since mine died when I was 30. We shared a love of the English language, especially a fondness for unique words, an avid interest in our family’s heritage, and a passion for cookies (me baking them, him eating them). I will sorely miss him.


While in this photo he looks like a young, handsome brooding Swede, he was the nicest man ever. I think he looks a little like David Bowie, but my favorite photog thinks he kinda looks like James Dean.


Supplies:
ArtPlay Palette He

Camera FotoBlendz No. 1

Process notes:
I used SolidPaper No. 3 as my base. I placed my photo and a Camera FotoBlendz and clipped them together, masking out the rough edges. I duplicated the photo twice using the screen mode @ 87%. I duplicated it again, placed it above the clipped photo and ghosted it back to 50% opacity. I placed several transfers behind the photo, creating a frame effect. I placed more transfers to the background to add more dimension. Text was the final accent.


Thanks for looking.

Oh Christy...my condolences. This is such a beautiful tribute to your uncle, and yes he is very handsome.... reminds me of Tab Hunter. I love the beautiful background you chose with strong markings, yet subtle. The monotones are gorgeous!

I am so sorry for your loss Christy. So very sorry. I love the simplicity of your page and made him the shining star 🌟 of the piece. I also like the muted tones. And I have to agree with Beverly, he reminds me of the Tab Hunter kind of hunk. In fact, that’s who I thought is was at first glance.

What a gem of a man...super handsome, nicest man ever, and a father to you in the absence of yours. Sounds like you enjoyed many bonding commonalities. My heart hurts for you, Christy. You've created a charming tribute. Hugs.

I think you are both right ... a wonderful looking combo. I'm sorry that he is not longer here, but your english language course will still continue - just listen and believe
