For the month of March, Retro Cafe Art is sponsoring Gingersnap Creations and the theme is "Family" with a focus on heritage pieces with antique or distressed art. If you read my blog you know how wonderful Retro Cafe Art is for amazing altered art supplies! I am lucky to be on both design teams so, this month will be a dream come true. Don't you love when different people, experiences or events intersect in our lives. Well, back to this week's Gingersnap challenge which is called GC141 Granny's Photo Album. I imagined this card today to be the front of an antique photo album with working hinges and a cross.
I started with the lovely woman image from Retro Cafe Art collage sheet called Pretty Women. I layered the transparent text from Retro Cafe Arts collage sheet called Daguerreotypes and put her in the Fancy ATC frame that I painted an aged green brown and edged in gold. She was layered on beige tattered lace on some patterned background paper. I added the Retro Cafe Art Cross Cut outs using a large one with a smaller cross on top for dimension. They were painted gold and red. Some paper hinges came next. Details included glittery Stickles, shiny red pearls and green metallic thread. The sentiment says "Radiant" and was layered on some glittery golden ribbon.
Hope you will have a radiant week.
take care, gerri
