Graphic 45 Couture!

It was a happy mail day on Friday when my Graphic 45 Couture collection arrived!!  I've just been itching to get my hands on it and we have it now in the Flying Unicorn store so hurry over and get some before it sells out!

Here's my first layout with it; I decided to start with the patterns and work my way into all the lovely Couture images that are part of this collection.  I just fussy cut one gal there at the bottom.  The photo is from the early 1940's and is of my grandparents, Mom and her sisters and a cousin in Washington DC.  The sisters are all wearing slacks which I found kind of interesting as the ladies didn't wear slacks too much back then.

I masked the peacock feathers on the background to go along with the peacock feathers in that one gorgeous printed paper.  Then I added a chippy that I painted with Smooch and dressed up with stickles.

The lamppost is heat embossed with Shimmerz Enamelz.
