Here's my challenge, play along and be sure to post your project in the forum at the Flying Unicorn!
Many of us have been busy playing with mixed medias this month and that has been very fun and has sure turned on everyone's creativity. But I had a longing to get back to one of my real loves and that is vintage styled layouts. I've used a photograph of my Mom and a friend that was taken during WW II. When I think of vintage styling, I think muted and faded colors, dark colors, distressed papers, pearls and rhinestones, roses, laces and doilies, photo corners and of course, black and white or sepia toned photos.
My challenge to you is to create a vintage styled LO, card or tag, easy enough!! And of course we have to have a few rules to make it interesting!! So on your LO I want to see:
1. Distressed and inked edges on your papers
2. Bling and or pearls
4. Either a black and white or sepia photo or a vintage image of some sort.
5. A doily - you can used purchased doilies or make your own.
I've used Prima's Romance Novel for my LO. Here's a list of supplies that I used and links to the store.
