I have been chugging right along with my "Steampunk Debutante" album. I just have two layouts left to do + the front cover. Below are the two most recent layouts. Remember that you can always click on a photo to see a larger image. Plus if you want a more detailed look, I will be sharing these on my UStream show today. UStream links, details and showtimes are on the sidebar under "Watch me live!"
The "Lace" Page:
This page has a black rosette trim layered over black lace. I used a strand of pearls to separate the trim from the lace and break up some of that dense black ~ and also to add a little touch of femininity. I added a Prima gallery rose, a tag from the paper collection, some velvet leaves and a Tim Holtz memo pin to the bottom left corner for a nice embellishment cluster. I used a Tim Holtz jump ring to dangle a 7 Gypsies charm from the memo pin.
The "Corset" Page:
This page uses the same image as the facing page. I figured that the owner would choose to put a large picture on the facing page & would cover up the lovely corset advertisement so I used it again here. The corset image is concealing a magnet holding this gate fold photo mat closed. I accented the corners of the mat with metal photo corners and some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers.
The "Corset Page Open:
This is what the corset page looks like fully open.
The "Lace" Page and the "Corset" page Together:
This is what the two pages look like side-by-side as they will be in the album.
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great week!
