This layout was for a challenge over at ARTastic Challenge Blog and their challenge criteria was Vintage style.
This layout started completely different, I had plans to use a photo of the seaside, but when I found this photo I knew that I had to use it. It seems strange using pink on a masculine page, don't you think, however the pink climbing roses dictated the colour scheme. I made the tags, the large pink flower and the flag pennant that I added to the layout.
Here is the inspiration photo from the ARTastic challenge blog:
The painting by Hilda Rix Nicholas is called The Summer House.
I was first inspired to use the teal colours but in the end I went with a more vintage style layout. The hand crocheted lace is from my stash.
Thank you for looking, Margaret :)
