Vintage Love Scrapbook Layout

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!
