Vintage Vogue Class - So Sweet

Claire Wheatley did a lovely class using Webster's Pages ' Hollywood Vogue'.  This was the class that really got me out of my comfort zone as it involved misting.  Those that know me well, know that I am not fond of messy crafts and anything that is likely to get my fingers inky LOL!!  BUT I am finally getting to like this misting lark and when I got home I decided that the white cardstock (which we hadn't misted in class) just looked too bright and stark compared with the rest of the layout so I carefully covered the middle panel with scrap paper and misted the cardstock.

The class involved a lot of intricate handcutting of the beautiful papers.  I took apart the large white flower as it was very bulky and remade it so that it was flatter.

A close up of the middle panel -

The alphabet stickers had started out life as white as had the netting behind the flower but they had been misted with the pewter mica spray.  I used photographs that had been taken of me playing out in the little backyard of the first house that I lived in.

Thankyou Claire for a lovely class and for challenging me to get messy!!
