For my first page, 'Man and Wife,' I scrapped a vintage photo of one of my great-aunts getting married in the early 1950's. I love the cut of her dress and her groom's tuxedo. I got the inspiration for this page from a challenge asking for a crème monochromatic color scheme with a twist of being vintage. When I looked for photos to scrap, this one screamed vintage and softer colors to me. The papers I used are from the Pink Paislee Parisian Anthology Collection, which I then inked with Antique Linen Distress Ink. I then placed some similarly inked doilies under the photo mat. The lace strips are from a roll of lace I bought at a big-box retailer that are misted with a solution of Antique Linen Distress Ink re-inker, water, and white Perfect Pearls powder.
The lace flower is also misted with this solution. The flower was made by sewing a straight stitch on one of the lace trim's edges and pulling the string to make ruffles then adding a pearl button for the center with adhesive. The rhinestone flourishes are from Prima which I cut into sections to use around the page. The other flowers are from Recollections, Prima, Petaloo, and Tim Holtz.
Here is a close up of the lace and the White Opal liquid pearls I added over the doilies and throughout the page.
This was such a fun opportunity to create a page for my family's heritage album. I hope that it inspires you all!
