My final Rusty pages are here

My final rusty pages have arrived. They are from Kathy, who took over when our dear friend Gina Wise died. Feel free to enlarge these scans.

Rusty may be my theme, but after scanning this page, I wondered if maybe this darling little dog was named Rusty. It is certainly a cutie.


I really enjoyed the rusty garden, with the weathered fence.


Of course, these hearts, filled with hope and faith, are completely rusty. The crackle finish adds to the weathered effect.


And of course I love the E, a symbol of who I go by. The darling little boy, the buttons, the brown leaves, the savings stamps, and the image at the top add to the charm of this piece. Thank you beyond words, Kathy. These will truly complete my rusty pages.

You lucky girl- I know it must be just like Christmas morning each time you open one of these! The "E" is my favorite too- I love how big the letter is and the way she filled in the comp around it- really nice work!

Hi there. I love that pup page. we have a darling cocker in our family that looks very similar. I do not generally like the crackle effect but that page sure is pretty. Love them all.

see you there! said...

Really nice rusty pages. What happens now? Do they all go into a book with the others? I remember you had quite a few collected.
