Scrapper's Crave
Vintage Love 10/11/2009
 
I am now so in love with the Making Memories Vintage findings... I got myself a few things from their range from Laine's last weekend.

I got so inspired looking through all the beautiful layouts and projects from Vintage Flair and off other blogs.... that I decided to scrapbook this wedding photograph of my parents.

And by the way, I had a go at using my glimmer mist... To add a layer to the background.... I find mists a little messy at times... so I really need to play around with it more... I used the leftover grungeboard as a stencil...

I had a chipboard frame which I painted in acrylic Chocolate paint, followed by a good coat of crackle accents. It cracked beautifully! I then used a paper doily to accompany the frame and photograph, and just lightly distress its edges. Afterwards, I added Tim Holtz grungeboard and distressed it in Walnut stain, then coat with distress stickles in Vintage photo, and Kaiserkraft pearls in Chocolate.

To their timeless love story...
 
 
I've been so busy but still squeezing in between time to scrapbook my stress away...

I am making a book from the Zig Zag Naked Book from 7gypsies based on pictures from my Botanic Gardens visit.... Its a collaboration of vintage and modern... you see that in the colours and materials I use... It was very challenging to do... cause I was finding it difficult to create a balance from both worlds.... This is a sneak peek...
