Picture Perfect

For the second class kit I worked on at the Merly Impressions Retreat I chose to do this one with a photograph of my nephew - Mark at my wedding back in 1984. He wore this lovely sailor suit and dressed up again the day after the wedding for a photo session in the garden, so Dad could do a painting of him.

This kit contained papers and embellishments from the Kaisercraft Miss Empire collection -Supremacy, Ancestry, Steampunk and Regent, and a pack of matching Collectables. Coffee Bean cardstock. 

For this layout I cut out a lot of the images from the papers as well as the Collectables. I added glossy accents, gems, pearls and Stickles. I highlighted the chain on the birdcage with metallic pearls. I also used some ribbon, papers roses and daisies.

Here are a few close-ups:
The frame was gutted and shading painted in with diluted inks.

Closer view of the cutouts and the glossed clock face.
The ribbon on the paper was also had the shading pained with inks.
This frame was also glossed and ribbon added to the tag.
