Vintage Style

This is Pg 1 of a double pg spread of the car my daughter arrived in for her wedding. It was a 1956 model Australian Holden, lovingly restored by my brother who proudly drove her to her wedding. The car was in immaculate condition and we all enjoyed the ride in it.

For this layout I used paper from DCWV 'Once upon a time' paper pad. It was already complete with glitter around the flourishes. I used the Cricut to cut the vintage styled frame from miscellaneous paper, also the title. The 'gold' dots were done using 'Liquid Pearls' in gold, this is great to use as it is very easy to control the flow and therefore get quite firm drops of it.

I used the Cricut to cut the leaves, then added miscellaneous flowers and bling.

On the 2nd pg I created a small embellishment using the back of an old brooch. I filled this with Dimensional Magic which I then filled with a mixture of 'sea beads' and popped 3 little crystal beads in the middle, once dried it makes a lovely embellishment.
