IMAGINE ~ a vintage layout

Here is another vintage layout of the intriguing and very beautiful early 1900's New York super model, Evelyn Nesbit Thaw.  She was around 17 years old in this photo. Her beauty really astounds me, which makes it so easy to create scrapbook layouts! 
I chose the paper that I felt suited her dreamy eyes and then converted the original photo into sepia color.
All of the products I used are listed below.  The white lace needed to be toned down and when I lightly sprayed it with Lindy's "Cocoa Bean Copper" I was so happy with the result!  WOW!  I decided not to spray a heavier coat because it really matched so well with the browns and rose colors in the paper.  
Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!  Lisa : )
