Hello Friends! I hope this finds everyone doing well & enjoying the month of May!
I have been so inspired by all the wonderful vintage layouts & Altered Art challenge blogs on the web that I had to go vintage! I love old pics & all they allow you to do! So the inspiration for this layout is vintage me!
I was not really a foo foo girl, but I had this dress -pictured above, that I LOVED! It was stiff, itchy & ohhh sooo pretty!! I can still see it & all it's over the top glory~ It was all Ruffles & Lace!
I thought the Basic Grey Capella papers were perfect! I also wanted to use my stash of Fancy Pants chip flourishes that have seemed to be unused as of late!
I layered the papers and added some lace to the back of the circle. All edges were inked with Distress Scattered Straw, Frayed Burlap & Worn Lipstick ink. I covered the flourishes with the background paper used in layout, then filed & inked all edges & dabbed the topside.
The flowers are Prima Gerber Daisy & seemed to work so well with the papers! I added a Maya Road Trinket pin to the center of the floral cluster for some added detail.
I then dotted the flourishes & papers with Ranger Liquid Pearls Petal Pink & Gold.
A journaling board (also Basic Grey) was inked & dotted with the Liquid Pearls. I added some tiny alpha title work to complete the layout! What fun I had recalling the dress!!
I took a couple pics as I was covering the flourishes & I think I will post my process of covering flourishes, if anyone is interested?!!
Also, I will be doing a blog makeover in the near future & will be having some Give-Aways, so keep checking back!! I think I am going to a 3 column blog & maybe some tabs too! Still in the planning mode, but should be sooner than later if things go as planned!
Once again, I need to let all know that you guys are awesome!!
Thanks for stopping by & taking a peek!
