This month the kit was 'vintage'......I don't often do vintage style on scrapbook pages.....but had a slightly vintage style 'official' photo taken at a formal dinner on our cruise.....and we are,of course,getting pretty vintage ourselves!!
I don't often do cruise photos either......they are so expensive to buy......but it's pretty rare we dress up.....so we decided to stump up and pay for a record of it.
This was a real 'out of my comfort zone' page.....but I'm really pleased with the result.All the papers were from a new Papermania range 'Madame Payraud'......the embellishments were supplied with the kit.....but I did add the butterfly washi tape and stickers, the little buttons and the title letters
The flowers that should have been made with the kit were very ornate and raised and while I did like them......I didn't think they'd squeeze into an album very well.....so I made a simpler one with offcuts of the papers.
There was also a lot of distressing of the papers which was fine when it involved ink.....but when it was suggested we screw up the postcard pieces before adding them.....I did turn a bit pale.....but it ended up being not quite as traumatic as I feared.....and does go well with the vintage feel.
I may even try some more vintage style pages!!
