I’m back!!!!!! Hey there fellow paper peeps! So excited to share with you a layout of a vintage style, a really hard style for me, as I don’t do it very often. This layout features my hubby as a baby and his Mom taken in 1944, wasn’t he a cute baby!!!!
There were so many yummy Creative Embellishments chipboards to choose from, I had such fun figuring out which ones to use. I started by showcasing the sweet photo with the Circle Vine Frame.
First I covered it with gesso, which may have been a mistake because I used a very dark embossing powder to cover the piece. The white of the gesso wants to peek through in some places. I did emboss the frame twice just to give good coverage, as you can see below.
Here’s another angle:
I used various flowers from my stash, including the sweet stargazer lilies from Blue Fern Studio and 49th and Market. Then I added some sweet fussy-cut images that I thought were perfect for a little guy’s page. Had to add some of those gorgeous flourishes from CE, embossed in gold, around the flower clusters. I cut apart Flourish #15.
In the right hand bottom flower cluster I added Vintage Flourish 1
I really hope you enjoyed my sharing how I altered CE’s gorgeous chipboards. Standby for more inspiration from the rest of the talented Design Team. Have a great week everyone!!!
