Hearts, Flowers, Ribbons and More!

Here's the layout we made at our Scraps and Prayers class this week.  Everyone really liked it.  I used a lot of Soft Suede, to prevent it from looking too 'pink' for the overall look.  This layout would lend itself well to old, sepia toned photos.
I've used layers of DSP from the Neutrals pack, Newsprint, Beau Chateau and Mocha Morning.  They all work together beautifully because I chose the patterns that had Soft Suede in them.  The Soft Suede heart is from textured CS and the Pink Pirouette heart is embossed with the dotted embossing folder, to give lots of texture.  All the punched hearts are attached with dimensionals.
I cut the fabric flowers with the Fun Flowers die.  Each flower has 3 layers, is spritzed with a spray product to stiffen it, and then crumpled up to give it a shabby, chic look.  I let it dry overnight, to be sure it was ready for our class.  I added an antique brad to the center of each flower, layered it over a piece of crochet lace trim and attached it with Liquid Tombow adhesive.
A super easy way to attach the pleated ribbon is to use an 18" long ruler as a guide.  Line it up with the lines on your grid paper and 'draw' a thin line of Liquid Tombow adhesive parallel to the ruler.  Remove the ruler, lay the ribbon onto the line of adhesive, and gently press it into place.

So here you have it, a great layout for Vintage photos.
Using so many layers and texture really adds a lot to a layout.  We finished it off with two little mini library clips.
