Happy Friday y’all!! Today we are getting vintage!!
I’ve been itching to scrap these pics of our family ladies tea for a couple of reasons, first of all, we were all dressed up and looking fancy and ummm…how often do you get a photo op with the queen?! LOL! Well a cardboard cut out of her but still. So needless to say this layout required just the right combination of class and style but I couldn’t lose my usual grit I normally like to have on a layout. Then the October kit came and I knew this was the kit to tackle these pics! I mean, hello…that Hambly overlay? *swoon* I was in my element to say the least. Well enough talk…let’s take a closer peek, shall we?
Let me start with the Prima flower in the middle I toned the bright pink down a bit with the Tattered Angels Ivory paint in the kit and glittered the edges up with the Gold Glimmer paint. Took a while for paint to dry on that felt but it was worth the effect I think.
I knew I wanted to use that glorious Hambly overlay (which I cut up in bits and pieces and cherished). So I cut the large frame and started layering from there.
I loved the way it looked on top of the 7 Gypsies Architectures Floral Guide Paper but as I cut and layered more pieces and then stencil some painted feathers with the Tattered Angels Ivory paint (and by the way the paint covered really well on that transparency), I decided to place a plain sheet of clear transparency over the 7 Gypsies paper. I begin attaching everything to the clear transparencty so everything had an even “transparency” gloss and the seems didn’t appear so harsh and evident. Then I started hand stitching! I stitched the little tag on to include some journaling, I’m not much on a lot of journaling text so that was perfect.
Then I knew I had to include some vintage linens, hello…it’s Antiqued Friday! So I pulled out my linen stash and found these wonderful cross stitched pieces and sewed them on. I was pretty happy with the look of how it turned out. All that was left was the title so I just searched through my alphas and popped on some trusty ‘ol alpha stickers from my stash and inked up all the edges and I was done. It all really came together and suited the mood of the pics pretty well. I hope y’all are inspired to get your vintage on today on your layouts and projects today!!
