Love and be loved lo


This lo was published in SNR magazine August 2010 issue
This page made Top 3 on Tuesday throwdown monochromatic challenge- thanks
My very new lo- my own wedding old photo(28 years old and very distressed too- who thought then about this acid free things?Not us, for sure)
So I decided not to fix it- but to leave as is and then it just was " do some vintage page- you are a vintage lady - by your skills and by your age..
And then it was like an experiment to use the recycled cardboard from a packaging for the base and here it is
Recycled cardboard was panted with white acrylic paint, I distressed some home doilies with distress inks, used a scrap from J. Bowlin pp for the mattin, teared and inked, added some 7 Gypsies transparency,Creative imagination " priceless" tag,made a journaling with hand drawn lines on a die cut, built some die cut 3d flowers with brads and lot of chunky glitter, then the half Prima pearl swirl was added, some lace with a buckle, some colored in light pink by me tulle and the only new item I used here was this fabric AC alphas- ok, I can't find 3 letters E in a used set..And 2 L and 2 V, but as this sets are without an & sign- I used one old from Prima canvas letters
The transparent butterflies were dressed with some gold stickles and blings after dry embossing with Swiss dots folder and I added a safety pin with home made crystal heart charm, 2 photo anchors and some staples
So all together I think no kind of glitter left unused: I have here glitter, stickles, pearls, gold paint on the roses,white crystals and crystal bead.
And as always this one was made with lots of web challenges in my mind- not so difficult if you check the lists before you scrap.
Flowers for Stamp and create
Acetate for Other lovelies
Very vintage for Stamping vacation
Monochromatic for Paper jewels
Pearls and swirls for Stampinsanity
Get out of the box for Simple doodles- this one is out of the box- useing this packaging as my basic cardstock, using so much paint here and making almoust all of the bellies at home
Embossing- the transparent butterflies are dry embossed- for OCC
Wedding for Crafty creationst
Paints for Belli
Monochromatic for Tuesday throwdown
Pretty in pink for Sweet stampers
Cute and girly for Creative card crew
Lace and flowers for Wild orchid
favorite things for Craft your days away-almoust everything here are- vintage, pink, distressing, flowers, blings, me.. LOL
4 and a half from pick 3 list for Mission to create- about me, wings, bead, hand drawn journaling lines and a sketch fits a lot- so this is a half and I need 3 only
Anything goes for Penny's
