Hello Roadies! This is a photo of my grandparents, along with the announcement of their marriage. They eloped and there are no photos of the actual event, but my great grandmother insisted she send out an announcement after the fact. I'm so glad that she did and I'm so glad they saved it. I scanned it and shrank it down to fit my design. I'm also glad they took a lot of photos of their family life from the very beginning. This photo is actually from a club called Randevu, where they saw Count Basie! Pretty cool.
I attached the announcement to the design with one of our Cream Pearl Ball Pins, I love how much elegance it lends the page.
I used lots of texture on this page. My banner is made using the Linen Mini Banner pieces, stamped with the Metro Uppercase Alphabet stamps. I stitched a Classic Ampersand clip on one of the banners with floss for more dimension. The pearls are past Maya Road products and the Antique Mini Quill Feather is a newer release.
Above the photo, I clustered two wooden birds (a past Maya Road product), a Linen Heart piece, a 3x5 Glassine Bag, a Vintage Paper Rose, and two red wooden flower buttons that I roughed up to make them more vintage. This isn't something I normally do, but I like how it turned out! They come in the Flower Garden Wood Buttons set along with a lot of other pretty colors.
I finished off with a Rectangular Kraft Envelope, embellished with a gingham button from the County Fair Wood Buttons set, again roughed up, on one side and a wooden doily on the other. My title used the Lisa Lowercase Chipboard Alphabets and some Charcoal Maya Mist.
I love that Maya Road products can go super trendy and modern looking, then get a little grungy and vintage feeling. I'm not usually creating the vintage look, but it's great to know these products can be so flexible.
