Shy Girl

My mother in the early 1940's

For this layout I used some beautiful laces, flowers, and rhinestone trim from the Tresors de Luxe Etsy shop.


These are some of the other products I used:


 
Riddersholm Design paper- Vintage Venture - Skies

Riddersholm Design paper- Vintage Venture - Yesterday



Wycinanka chipboard - Blueberry Swirls Big Frame with Lattice
             
Wycinanka chipboard - Fullness of Summer 7

Martha Stewart punch - Wild Flowers

Spellbinders die -Captivating Squares
                              


Along the inside of the punched area I spread a thick layer of tacky glue and sprinkled Stampendous Taupe Color Fragments, small white beads and micro beads in white, turquoise and bronze overtop. After the glue was dry I applied a couple of coats of Krylon Low Odor Clear Matte spray to help keep the beads from falling off too easily.


Here are some close-ups of the layout:


















Thanks for taking a look.

  2. Perfectly exquisite Tracy! Absolutely love everything about this beautiful page. That beaded edge is terrific. I'll have to write down the Krylon spray tip. Hugs.

  5. I am in awe of your artwork on your scrapbook pages. How long do these typically take you to complete?

    1. Thanks. It probably takes me about a week or so on average to complete a layout but it depends on how my creative juices are flowing. I will sometimes work on several at once so I can jump back and forth if I start getting frustrated with one. It used to take me about a month for each one, but I guess I've accumulated so many supplies and have more experience now that it's a little easier to come up with ideas.
