Hi my friends, it’s Lizzy with you today! This time I wanted to do something about my family and me.
As many of you know, I was born and raised in Chile. My father came here escaping from the World War II, he was Romanian, and my mother’s parents came from Poland. At that time, it seems that South America was like the actual “American Dream” for people who were scared about their future in Europe.
In this spread, I wanted to represent both worlds (Europe and South America) pointing the countries, and making marks on the journey my ancestors had to go through.
Of course I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays to give them a vintage look.
Sea Grass Green, Ethereal Emerald, Down the Rabbit Hole, Opal Sea Oats, Medieval Gold, Yellow Rose of Texas.
Watch, I will show you the process of making these pages below:
Here are some close ups so you can see some of the details:
I hope You enjoyed my project, and take a chance and create one of your own about your heritage!
Until next time!

Thank you Heather!!
I love this Lizzy! What a fabulous record of your family history!
Thank you so much Kathy xoxo!!
Thank you Lisa!!
This is my all time favorite set of journal pages – ever! I think they are beautiful and the lines of travel, pictures and embellies are perfect. Your journal pages will be providing much inspiration for many crafters (myself included). I do love your work – and thanks for sharing your art.
P.S. Lovin’ the nail color too! Kathy
Thanks to you Linda, I’m so glad I gave you some inspiration. I would love to see that canvas!!
Thank you Marta!!
Lizzy, thank you for the wonderful ideas! I’m getting ready to do a birthday canvas for my youngest brother. It will feature the only photograph we have of our great-grandfather, a first-generation American. His parents both emigrated from Ireland. Your spread has given me some great ideas! Thank you.
This is amazing piece, love the map and all those background work !!!
