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.


As always I was waiting for the release of the new Basic Grey lines and wasn' disappointed with the paper I have used in this layout. It was exactly what I was looking for to scrap this picture. Any daughters wedding is special and our daughter and son in law's bridal waltz was just beautiful, so, I wanted that reflected in this layout of my husband and I.

I used the Porcelain line 'Rochelle' to cut all the flowers out using a finger knife, then inked around the edges for definition before adhering with 3D tape. Then mixed in a few smaller blooms and added some Basic Grey rub ons.

Finished it off with the journal tag by Creative Imaginations.

This layout was done using a sketch design from Inspired Blueprints, a fabulous site you should check out their regular sketch ideas.
