Forever - A layout by Bec Genet

Hi all, this month 2Crafty are sponsoring the More Than Words Challenge and their theme is Yesterday and Vintage. Here is the layout I made for this challenge. The word YESTERDAY made me think of old photos. The reason why I started scrapbooking was to preserve these photos, so I chose a favorite old photo of my daughter from 9 years ago. I followed the VINTAGE inspiration on my layout with my colour choices of warm classic tones, plus the use of antique lace and pearls.

2Crafty Chipboard Used:
Corner Thick Vine
Frame Celia's Flourish
Flower Doilles
Friendship Mini Word Pack
Lacey Border Set

The More Than Words August Challenge - Yesterday & Vintage

I kept all the chipboard very basic on this layout and only used black ink and white gesso on them.

The Corner Thick Vine and Frame Celia's Flourish I covered with the black ink. I placed the frame over my photo, then I cut the Vine in half and placed half on the top of my layout and half on the bottom. 

I used two coats of white gesso on the Flower Doilles, Friendship Mini Word Pack and Lacey Border Set. This gave them a crisp finish. I only used the largest  Flower Doily in the pack, I cut it in half to place on either side of my photo

Thanks for visiting
