Leather and Lace

This layout was a long time coming. 
My beautiful daughter and handsome son-in-law married in Venice, Italy in December, 2011.  Near the end of the photo session, my daughter was very cold, so she put on her leather jacket over her very feminine, gorgeous wedding gown.  How cool is that? 

I ordered the custom chipboard title from Want2Scrap quite a while back with this specific photo in mind.  After acquiring the gorgeous Prima Timeless Memories paper collection, I was ready to move forward creating! 

I wanted the title to stand out so I inked it with chestnut brown color and then topped it with crackle.
I really love the soft pastel, grunge of this paper, so I decided to not do anything to change that. The peachy-terra cotta colors of the buildings in the photo resonate perfectly in the colors on this paper. Everything is simply glued in place, allowing this gorgeous paper to be the ready-background. 
Lindy’s Stamp Gang Starburst color Cocklebells Coral was used to color snippets of lace and add shading around the photo, hearts and flowers.
The title inspiration is from the song “Leather and Lace” by Stevie Nicks.  Of course I had to include the lyrics because they are so beautiful!
The exceptionally cute hearts & heart outlines are from The Dusty Attic.  I chose a muted tone for them with Lindy’s Stamp Gang embossing color Sunrise Salmon Gold. 
Look how perfectly these beautifully detailed Wild Orchid Crafts mulberry peach roses match the color theme!
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!  Lisa : )
