Memories with Antiquities

Hi everyone, Denise here with my first layout using the Antiquities collection

IMG_9604-R-B 2This collection has beautiful tones including a striking mustard which complements the sepia and blue perfectly.

I decided to make my first layout one with a vintage feel as I have a photo of my mum when she was young  and thought it would go really well.

I used a sheet of ‘ Rare’  paper first and using the script side I used Texture Paste around the layout through the co – ordination Distressed Dots mini stencil.

Distressed Dots 6x6 Designer StencilIMG_9591I decided to use a frame  which I cut out from the Precious paper and mounted on foam tape over my base paper.

My layers of paper under my photo were a few of the papers from the paper pad. First off, I embossed some of them with the Distressed  embossing folder.

I distressed the edges with a paper distresser

Next, I layered lots of die cuts from the Collectables Pack and Sticker Book all around the photo.

I adore the little sheet with the circles and fussy cut some diamond shapes then used the edges layered up to make a flower. IMG_9603

Finally I used to words Love and Memories together with the date which I cut from a paper in   the paper pad.

Thanks for visiting and Happy Crafting !
