Vintage Bride collage

A warm welcome to you, and especially my new followers. I'm really happy to see you here and appreciate your visits and comments very much. Again I'm inspired by the challenge dear Ros of the City Crafters gave us. This week it was all about the use of tulle and text. I made a collage this time.

First, I teared some cardboard of a package of water bottles. Then I added a layer of gesso, tulle and paint. In photoshop I altered a picture of a vintage bride. I think the artist is Earl Christy. It so much looks like his style. But I gave her a different background, which would suit my project better.

I added a piece of text of The Great Gatsby, a vintage picture of an old building, a wedding cake, some lace fabric and lace ribbon with tulle.

Below you see something I thought to be very funny to add. It says "Will not be replaced for any defect." :)

I also made a vintage wedding invitation telegram. "Together with their families, Lauren Stacy and William Grey invite you to join them for an evening of love, laughter and merriment etc etc." Which, of course, is fiction. And I made a bow of lace ribbon, which I think is the most expensive thing of this collage, the rest is budget crafting. Plus a button and an old love letter I found on the internet.

Last but not least, I added flowers in the same colour as the brides wedding bouquet and made a rose out of the lace fabric I also used for the background. And some thingies on the corners of the picture of the bride, which gives the impression of a frame.

Here's the whole collage:

The image of the bride you can find as a freebie HERE.

And oh... by the way, I didn't use the "vintage dunno" of my previous post. I just got stuck and didn't know what to with it. May be for a future project.

Bye ladies, I'm wishing you a wonderful week. See you at your blogs!
