Vintage Heritage Layout for Gina's Designs And The Robin's Nest

 
Hello Friends! Today I have a fun share for all of you featuring papers and embellishments from The Robin's Nest.  All month long the team at Gina's Designs Lasercuts is cross promoting with the team at The Robin's Nest, and we have been having a blast playing with the amazing products from them.
 
 
I started of this layout with my inspiration being this lovely lady in one of my vintage photos from my collection.  She always looked "grumpy" to me, so I dubbed her "the grumpy lady".  I always wonder who these folks are, where they were from and how their photos end up in yard sales and in thrift stores.  I created some background texture on the "Fleur Honeycomb" paper with my texture paste and some Twinkling H2o's to pick up on the colour tones in the paper. I also added some of the Time Flies Rub ons from The Robins Nest to the background, I really love these, they fit in so well with the theme  of the layout.

 
Once the background was complete, I started to layer on more of the papers from The Robin's Nest, some burlap and more chipboard from Gina's.  I used this lovely chipboard frame from Gina's Designs. I took some of the Robin's Nest Dew Drops and placed them on the corner of the frame and then added a few to the ruler at the base of the photo to add some sparkle and shine!

 
My finishing touches were some lace from my stash and some gorgeous Petaloo flowers.  I hope my "Grumpy Lady" is happy in her new home, and maybe somewhere out there, she is smiling.
Thanks for stopping by today!
