1920 ~ Lindy's sprays

Hi everyone!  I made another layout featuring the fascinating and beautiful Evelyn Nesbit Thaw (early 1900’s Super model/actress).  It's always so enjoyable scrapping her!  You can see below in previous posts that I have scrapped her many times before.  Born in 1884, she is 35 years old in the photo I picked for this layout.  I didn’t want to over embellish and possibly take away from this striking photo, but I did want to incorporate some 1920’s vintage elements.   I made an embellishment of a lady with the typical 1920’s hair style who is smoking with a feminine cigarette holder (I made the 'smoke' with cotton).  I also added a pearl necklace tied in a knot and the ever popular t-strap shoes of the day. 
I had so much fun making this LO using several processes & techniques including embossing powder painting; microbeads; stenciling; inking; recoloring with Lindy’s gorgeous sprays and creating a rusted look with Distress Stickles.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a great day!  Lisa :)
An embellishment, such as a piece of chipboard, can become so interesting by using the technique called "embossing powder painting" (using more than one embossing color on a single piece).   I've used this technique many times in the past when scrapping, but only recently found out what it is called. 
I'm quite pleased with how the cotton 'smoke' turned out.  :) 
Photos can never truly capture the gorgeous shimmery colors in the Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays.  I've said it many times on other posts on how Lindy's sprays can really put the 'WOW' in a layout!  I am a huge fan and love their products. 
Hope you try some in your layouts - you will not be disappointed!
