While I was creating my last page to enter the new A Vintage Journey challenge, "Your Hearts Desire", I thought of another way of developing the theme.
My mind turned to a photo, which I have in a family collection, of a bride and groom. Unfortunately I don't know who they are, and there is no-one of my family left of this generation to ask.
I prepared the background with a mix of fragile papers and rubbed some pale creams and pink fresco paints in with my fingers, the idea being to blend together the background images.
I stamped a heart from Emma Godfrey onto a French Dictionary page, the page which lists Love words and aged it.
I fussy cut some flowers from my paper stash and made a copy of the wedding photo.
I added some diecuts which were left overs and found a poem which I thought was suitable. "She Walks In Beauty."
I darkened the edges of the pages slightly with an umber Neocolor crayon which I then moistened with a brush and water.
Happy to use this beautiful photo but sad that I don't know their relationship to me.
So, this is my second entry for A Vintage Journey Challenge.
