Velvet ensemble is divine

WOW, I just LOVE this new range from Kaisercraft. Velvet Ensemble its called, and it is so totally up my alley. This is a layout I did for the Kaiser DT blog this week, PLUS Ive also designed the layout so it fit the criteria for the latest challenge at BIRD IS THE WORD :) ......   


As soon as I saw all the musical elements, I knew the perfect photo I could use. My Nan loved to sing, in this photo she is singing at the Royal Mail Hotel in Melbourne, she was around 25. I have used a paper doily for the background for my photo, doilys add a beautiful, feminine vintage feel to a layout.
TIP: Ive soaked the doily (and the lace) in a tea solution, then added some gold based glimmermist to it. Finally, I added some distress ink around the edges to give it more of an aged appearance.



Thanks so  much for calling in, I wish everyone a wonderful week, I will be back soon to share some more new Kaisercraft projects with you .......
