How old do scrapbook papers have to be, before they are considered vintage? I have soooo many beautiful paper ranges that I haven't played with yet - they are just sitting on my shelf gathering dust. It's not that I don't want to - I do - it's more a matter of not having enough hours in the day to get everything done. Take the following Echo Park "Victoria Gardens" papers. I purchased the kit when the range was first released, and I am only now getting to play with them - so does that make them vintage? How long ago was this paper range released?
I created this layout for no particular reason. :-) I simply felt like it. I decided it was time just to play and have fun. Without expectations or DT commitments.
Titled: This Is Their Story
You all know I love bling, glitter, and sparkly things. I can't help myself - I just have to add it to every layout. And this layout is no exception, lol! My Imaginarium Designs chipboard butterflies are coated with Doodlebug Glitter. I created the butterfly centres with liquid Pearls.
And since the layout is about my daughters, I couldn't go past the Imaginarium Designs hanging dress form. How sweet and girly is this? Yes, more Doodlebug Glitter, and Zva Creative rhinestones.
To create my end flourishes, I simply cut an Imaginarium Designs border flourish in half, painted it with Twinkling H2O's, and layered another frame flourish on top (also painted with Twinkling H2O's).
I love how all the detail and texture have come together in this layout. It turned out even better than what I had envisioned in my head, and for that I am grateful.
I have added this to my list of "Favourite Ever Layouts"!!!
