Victorian is my all-time favorite theme, and this month's Mood Board Challenge with Reneabouquets was the essence of Victorian. I tried to capture most of the colors in the challenge. I really enjoyed making this layout. The lovely image is from Pinterest.
Special thanks to Laura (LauralsAttic)for the lovely diecut that I made into a tablecloth; Brandy (Brandy Lynn) for the lovely Prima flowers; Lisa (Iluvcats) for the Spellbinders Nestaboard and Nestabling (Label) and what was so cool is I have the same die set!! And Jenn D. for the lovely stickpins.
Reneabouquets products: Beautiful Board Victorian Mirror, Tea Time set, Small Ironwork Clock Face, Leaf Vines, Printed Beautiful Board 6 piece small texture pattern - green (corners and piece under mirror), butterflies, red microbeads, pearl and bling piece on the bottom of the mirror and gold microbeads on the stamped chandelier.
On the corner pieces I inked them up with Tim Holtz Bundled Sage, Crushed Olive and Vintage Photo so the color would match the lovely G45 Princess paper better. I also used my Versamark pen and embossed the edges with Stampendous Aged Gold. I used the same embossing powder on the lovely mirror frame. I draped some cheesecloth around the side of the mirror for effect.
The chandelier is TH Urban Grunge. It's the first time I've used that chandelier.
The clock face is embossed with Stampedous Shabby White and the hands with Aged Gold.
On the tea set, I used Rouge, Avocado and Bisque Liquid Pearls, then when dry I applied TH Distress Crackle Paint in Clear Rock Candy to give them an aged look. I then rubbed TH Aged Mahogany over all the pieces to bring out the crackle a bit. If you look closely you can barely see steam coming out of the teapot and cups. I diecut some Spellbinders corner pieces using vellum. I posted a close-up to see detail a bit better. I also cut tidbits of lovely lace from RB for the "napkins".
Thank you so much for visiting my gallery and I hope you enjoy my layout!!
