Hello! Today, I have a 8 x 8 scrapbook layout to share with you. I love old vintage pictures and especially wedding pictures. Sometimes when I have old photos I like to make layouts that I can put on an easel and display for a home decor piece. Usually these layouts are a little heavier on the embellishments since they won't be in a scrapbook.
Here is the layout that I designed using an old family photo. This is one of the photos that I got this past summer when we were at my family reunion. I am going to have to show this to my grandpa so I can find out the name of the couple, there was no writing on the back of the photo. But I just love this picture and thought it needed to be put in to a layout. The bride had a beautiful gown and a gorgeous bouquet of roses.
I used Prima Challis Tea-Thyme Collection for the printed paper. I thought it would look so pretty with the photo. Then I cut/embossed LF-015 Grand Decorative Circles One using Champagne Metallic cardstock and layered that behind the photo. I used a piece of Simply Smooth Ivory to mat the photo. For the flower cluster I used S5-086 Bitty Blossoms and S5-129 Foliage Two. I cut/embossed all of the piece using Simply Smooth Ivory cardstock and then once I had the roses and leaves shaped I airbrushed them using Copic markers. I used R20, RV10, R85 to color the roses and G24 for the leaves.
Here is a close up. I also tucked in some small pieces of vintage lace trim, trinket pins and bling.
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful day!
Please be sure to stop back tomorrow--I will be posting some fun Halloween Blog Candy. ;-)
