2021: North Carolina Road Trip – Andrew Jackson Hermitage – 2

This is the second spread of our visit to the Andrew Jackson Hermitage. This spread is a little more somber as it shows the Jackson family cemetery and shares the story of one of their slaves. I picked brown and green background papers and matting for this spread to match the colors in the photographs.

The left-hand page has photos of the painting that is in the location brochure which you can see in the first spread of this set, the family cemetery, and a historical plaque sharing the story of the family and which markers belong to which family member. In the middle of these pictures is a date stamp which can be found in the gift shop of most historical buildings. I usually get two or three made just in case I mess up with one of them, or they do not turn out very well. I used the Creative Memories Circle Cutter to cut it out from the paper it was stamped on, as well as the green border around it.

The right-hand page shares the story of Alfred Jackson, one of the slaves of the Jackson family, who is buried in the family cemetery. His home can be seen in the bottom picture. If you click on the picture above, you can zoom in and read more about Alfred. His story was compelling to me, and so I wanted to make sure that it was featured in this space.

Recently, for most of my scrapbook creations I have also created videos that show me putting them together and talking about the experiences as well as the techniques that I am using. So please enjoy watching this spread being created and assembled:
