Here is another layout I've been working on that I'm having framed for a series of engagement photos that I'm giving as a gift to my nephew and his new bride. I really loved this photo of them taken by this old rusted out pick-up truck. I wanted the page to have a bunch of distressed aged elements so I use a bunch of my Dusty Attic chippies and gave them a weathered look. For this layout I used The Fancy Flourish #2 and the Mini Cogs (which I gave the Verdigris finish found in my tutorials at the right side of the blog), the Baroque Corner and ATC Frames Set #1 (which I finished by painted with Gesso and then adding some dimensional silver Perfect Pearls to give a 3D look) as well as the Mini Hour Glass (which I finished by first painting white, adding some bronze and aqua paint and used a little glue in glass area and applied real sand). Here are some close-up shots of my page....
I thought the zipper design would be a nice addition to this page as well. I actually snipped this zipper out of an old pair of pants :)
The papers and blooms I used for this page are all Prima (from the Almanac collection). I thought they had that nice aged look to them and the soft pinkish tones matched the rusted colors in the old pick-up truck. I used some little torn bits of book paper to add more of a tattered look to the layout a well. (Look for old books at thrift stores, I picked mine up for pennies! They come in really handy for scrapping!)
