The Classy Evelyn Nesbit

When I buy scrapbook collections, I usually load up on every item that comes with them. Then they sit in a drawer until the right photo comes along to make a perfect fit. 
The 1920's fashion theme of the Graphic45 Couture collection was perfectly suitable to scrap the early 1900's super model, Evelyn Nesbit Thaw.  I have scrapped her numerous times and will continue as long as I can find photos of her!  This photo was taken in the early 1920's, when Evelyn was in her mid-30's.  Such a beautiful and intriguing woman!
I'm sure by now that you have guessed that the "E" and "N" stickers stand for "Evelyn Nesbit".  : )
I fussy cut the Couture Magazine and placed it next to the photo.  All of the stamps on the bottom of the layout are also fussy cuts.
Cardstock flowers and a "CLASSY" tag were added decorative elements from this collection.  Various bling brads, a black tassel and beautiful black & teal feathers complemented the 1920's vibe.
I first fussy cut the 1920's model; then 'decorated' her: beaded strand became arm bracelets, as well as a waist long double-wrapped necklace; flat back tear-drop pearls became her earrings.  I placed a single stem rose in her hand to coordinate with the roses on her dress.  Black Soot Stickles enhanced the folds in her gown.  I am so excited how she turned out!

I chose some interesting dies to collage the photo area.

For added sparkle, Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst sprays were used on the Prima flowers.

I had so much fun creating this LO and really appreciate your visit!
Have a wonderful week!   Lisa : )

  1. Oh my goodness, Lisa! I can definitely see how much fun you had making this. Everything goes so well with the details on her gown. Fabulous!

  2. There's so much attention to detail in this layout! I love how you dressed up the model's image with jewelry, even earrings, and the rose in her hand! The feathers add more gorgeous texture, and the pearl banner at the bottom is awesome!
