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.
