Vintage fun

I don't create very much in the vintage style, but I do enjoy using vintage elements in my scrapping - such as distressing, old book pages and touches of lace.  I don't have any vintage or heritage photographs to scrap, so I altered a new photograph to black and white.

Here are some of my details - homemade concertina flower, fussy cutting, stitching:

Ecru lace, twine,  inking and embossing on the edge of the doily (and a duck feather!)

I'm entering my layout at:

* Craft Hoarders Anonymous Vintage or Retro challenge.  My 'hoarded stash' is the patterned paper - I bought a 12x12 K&Co paper pad at the Scrapbooking Expo in Brisbane in 2009 or 2010. (I remember because it is the only time I have ever bought one, and it was an indulgent purchase at the time.)  I fell in love with the papers but have only used about half of them so far.  I used two journalling cards from the same collection as a mat for the photograph. 

* Scrapbook Fantasies for their challenge to "Create a heritage layout"
