'Vintage' Mixed Media Inspiration

Hello and Happy Tuesday!

We have a beautiful layout to share today:


Lisa was working with our December Silver Bells kit, Elements Add On, and Floral Add On when she created this beauty.  Here's what she has to say about about her layout:

Continuing on with my obsession with brown lately, I chose this beautiful Authentique paper called 'Tidings One' and then used the turquoise Petaloo flowers, and the white Prima resin from this month's add-ons. There are so many pretty Christmas papers to work with this month. I also added a few elements from past kits, the paper doily and the Prima metal flourish.

Here are a few close ups....
As I was creating this layout I realized that this is the female companion to my layout 
John Edward that I also created with a Scraps of Elegance kit a while back. 
Same daguerrotype photograph, and beautiful vintage styling that I adore....
the name Faith Margaret also just came to me, so here she is :)
I love the idea of creating characters in art, imagining who these strangers were...
I used some 2 Crafty Chipboard pieces here, 'Corner Holly Vines', and 'Elements',
that I embossed in copper and gold.



Thank you for stopping by to see us today, I hope you enjoyed Lisa's layout, and I hope you have a beautiful day...
