Milly - A Vintage Layout

My husband's mother Mildred.

The Velvet Roses and Butterflies are wonderfully vintage.

A little Tea Dye Distress Ink is added across the butterfly to show the embossing.

This is a layout of my husband's mom circa 1920's. Her family were miners and so the formal clothing was a bit out of caracter for her. I love this photo and wanted to be able to see it preserved.

The papers are from Creative Imaginations and I used the new Thin Wood Birch to die cut the butterfly and trim inside the photo. The Cuttlebug works great with this new product to cut and emboss.

I LOVE the Velvet Roses and Butterflies from Petaloo!!! So elegant and truly vintage looking. The other flowers are Color Me Crazy and Celebrations. You can create any color you want with the Color Me Crazy flowers. Ink, paint, stamp, glitter....the possibilities are endless.

Well, the move is over, but the picture hanging and the 3, yes 3, shower curtains, numerous window colverings, and a million toys are getting into place. It is a fabulous home, and they never had to have ONE open house. Unbelievable!!!

Maybe I can get back to my artwork now. Shipments of STUFF are arriving every few days. So I should have no excuse not to do something!!! The birdcage project was fun....have to wait to show that to you later.

The new Tim Idea-ology things are FABULOUS!!!!! Need I say more?????

Tornado season is here, so the hot and wonderful days sometimes end with a wicked storm and downpours at night. Ya gotta live somewhere, but here it's always something.

Be well, be good to each other, and Create ART!
