Today I’m sharing a vintage layout with a photo taken in 1905. I’ve used all B sides from Graphic 45’s Cafe Parisian collection along with lots of pretty Creative Embellishments chippies and Petaloo blooms.
The photo is of my husband’s grandmother so the Ancestry title is certainly appropriate. To color the chipboard, I used Ranger Antiquities California Stucco embossing powder, which is different, in that it leaves a grainy surface rather than shiny.
I used the Circle Vine Frame around the photo, it’s definitely a favortie of mine because its just the right size for many of my photos and looks so great layered with flowers.
I used Photo/Page corner set 6 in opposing corners to layer with my flowers. They are also heat embossed with Ranger Antiquities California Stucco embossing powder. The lovely flowers are from Petaloo’s Darjeeling collection.
Of course you need some leaves along with your flowers so I’ve used Flourish Set 10. I used a couple of different colors of Lindy’s Starburst Mists to color the chipboard and then I cut the flourish apart and tucked in pieces here and there.
