I scan in old photo's and then print them on a light ecru colored card stock. Then I use chestnut brown chalk ink to edge the photos. I am surprised (in real life) how well this technique works. Better than using sepia colored ink to print them. I had taken a photo of my mom's family in to a professional photographer to have printed up. I asked them to be as close to the original as possible. What I ended up with was a shiny black and white copy. So I started to experiment on my own and am extremely happy with the results.
I have been wanting to do a LO of my Mom and Dads wedding for a long time and this morning while I was going thru some paper, I found these and thought they would work very well. I am happy with the results. I documented on the back what supplies I used as well as where the wedding photos were taken. I have started doing this on all my newest layouts. Someday perhaps the information will be really useful.
