Summer CHA starts this week in Chicago! I am not going to be at the show this time, but my work will be! I have work at the Graphic 45 and Hampton Art Stamps booths. If you are at the show, stop by and say hello to the gang at both booths!
Here is a layout I created for the Graphic 45 booth, using A Ladies' Diary papers. This is my favorite of the four new collections.
I love the soft colors combined with black and dark brown. There are many lovely elements in this collection.
I used a lot of paper to highlight the collection, but I also used a large, tinted photograph as the anchor. This photo is my husband's great aunt's wedding, from 1934. This is a great photo to use with the A Ladies' Diary Collection. The brown tones of the photo work
so well with the soft pastels of the paper. I added a vintage doily and some
lace, plus small flower "bouquets" to continue the wedding theme.
As always, I mixed some metal in with the flowers and pearls. The NEW metal Key and Keyhole staples are perfect!
I also used a vintage doily and some lace in keeping the vintage wedding theme.
The pearls are a "bridge" to connect the two bouquets on the layout. They are also part of the wedding theme of the page.
I hope you are inspired and that you love A Ladies' Diary as much as I do! For a look at the darker papers in the collection, see my Altered Dresser project HERE.
