Hello everyone, Welcome & thanks for visiting,
I am delighted to be Guest Designer on
I am working with the new RITZ COLLECTION
'GATSBY' pad, stamps & dies,
the 1920's is a favourite era of mine so I was drawn to the Art Deco designs by Sue Smyth
My first sample is titled:
I found this image & decided to highlight the mask with a real peacock feather,
enhancing the colour with flowers of a matching shade
I used the die which I then halved to add either side of the picture
Old gold flowers mixed with the peacock colour, cut a circle to fill a metal embellishment
on which a hand made gold tassel hangs
fussy cut the party time title, champagne bottle & glass
there are many raised layers all mounted on black to emphasize the angular lines
I really got into the mood of the era & continued to play,
I wanted to show how wonderful wedding photos could look on range,
it really is so versatile.
The bride is mounted onto a frame of gold & raised on foam tape
A dull green lace banner heads above the photos & using metals to highlight the garland , I added shades of grey green & gold with a deep citrus green roses which are nestled on a base of silver grey organza petals for softness, the metal oval has paper & gold pearls there are bright gold leaves tucked into each side.
more roses & metals either side of the title .
I hope I have inspired you to create with this great range.
