Good Times

Every now and then, I like to try out new styles and techniques, just for a refreshing change. I did a layout last weekend that’s not quite my usual style, but I really like how it turned out. For one, it’s got no flowers – lol! Secondly, it’s got a very vintage feel to it.

I used products from Tim Holtz – papers, ink, film strip ribbons, metal embellishment, and added some from my own stash. And I inked almost everything that can be inked, including the strips of twine.

I also distressed and inked a piece of corrugated cardboard and mounted my photo onto it. I then placed this on top of the strips of patterned paper that I had also lightly distressed and inked and layered onto the backing paper.

The layout is then completed with some metal embellishments and the film strip ribbons.

Thanks so much for dropping by! :)
