My first project I would like to share with you is a 12x12 layout. The lace and the beautiful soft flowers add a girlie elegance to the layout. I did a little bit of soft masking to frame the double photos of my daughter.
I just adore the Tan Grosgrain Ribbon Flower with Decorative Center (FL-011) The smaller Light Pink Velvet and Rhinestone Flower (FL-052) was inked very lightly to blend in with the colors of the other flowers and the papers in the layout.
This Soft Peach Tulle Flower with Sequins (FL-045) reminded me of a flower that should adorn a ballerinas headdress. The sequins give it a beautiful sparkle and it just shimmers.
I am so glad that a lot of the gorgeous Tresors de Luxe lace in my GD package was white or cream. I wanted to give this White Venice Lace (LA-023) a bit of a tea stained vintage look. It was VERY easy. Just a little spritz of Lindys Stamp Gang Starburst Spray in Clam Bake Beige and a slight rub of Distress Ink in Frayed Burlap, was just what it needed for that vintage old lace look.I had pulled out some old lace in my stash that my grandmother had given me about 35 years ago. Yup...The color is just about the same. Nice to know it can be easily reproduced. Can you imagine the colors you could turn your white and cream lace into?? Oh my..endless possibilities. Of course white and cream colored lace goes with just about everything!!! I am now dreaming of Ombre....the creative wheels in my brain just keep turning.
I used an older Prima mask to softly ink a circle around the photos. I did a little machine sewing around the photos instead of matting them.
I just added my own flower and Zva Creative leaves to the corner and sewed on a couple of little clamshell buttons on the side.
Just another view of my layout to show dimension.
