Happy Monday! Today I am sharing you with a layout that I made for my Design Team Challenge which came out on Friday.
I have been looking through my mom's old photos and grabbing the ones I want of her side of the family and I came across a newspaper clipping of my parent's wedding. I knew that this would be my DT challenge.
This week over at Let's Scrap, my challenge is to use a newspaper clipping on your layout. It does not need to have photos on it as well but it does need to use a newspaper clipping as well as a Let's Scrap sketch. I happened to have photos of my parent's wedding, so I did use photos but photos are not a requirement.
Here's my example for the challenge:
As I said before, I was looking through my mom’s old photos when I found this newspaper clipping of their wedding announcement. I absolutely loved reading it as there is a paragraph describing the details of her dress which you just don’t see the newspapers doing anymore!
In this paragraph it says, “The bride chose a gown of polyester chiffon, featuring a Queen Anne neckline and keyhole back. The bodice and upper sleeve were trimmed in raschel lace and seed pearls. Her A-line skirt with pleated front panel and lace edging at hemline ended in a full length cathedral train. Her veil of French illusion net was also trimmed with matching lace and seed pearls”.
I inked around the doily and pretty much everything except the photos with victorian velvet Tim Holtz ink.
Thanks for looking and I hope you get a chance to play along with my challenge. You can check out the original challenge HERE.
Thanks again and have a good Monday!
