Miss Empire Layout

Today I'm sharing my first layout with the Miss Empire Collection.

This is vintage beauty of a collection that reminds me a lot of the Madame Boutique Collection that Kaisercraft released a couple of years ago... it would marry perfectly with it I'm sure!

For this layout I decided to delve deep into the family photo album to find an appropriate print to use, and you wouldn't believe it but the colours in all the photos over about 40 years old were perfect for this collection ... they all worked so well! So I can definitely recommend this collection wanting to do vintage or heritage layouts as they work perfectly with older period photos.

The page itself was very beautiful to begin with... here is the original:

And as you can see I just added a some bits and pieces to it to compliment the photo. The main technique going on this page is the stamped background. 
To create that effect I used a Kazzazz background stamp and filled the center dots with a white pearl pen... I just love the quilted look this gives.

Thanks for stopping by for a look.
Have a great day.
Cheers from Kelly-ann.

* I couldn't get this photo to present the right way!!!??? but I wanted to show you it anyway so you can see up close the 'Quilting effect'.   :)
