Lady of Mystery

Flight of Fancy is the featured kit at Retro Designs blog right now. I've used it in a number of layouts, but in most it is combined with other kits. I thought I'd try a new one with FoF and found a fancy frame I had never used that intrigued me. I teamed it with a photo from one of the old photo albums brought from Slovakia by Dick's grandfather. I don't know the lady's identity, but I think she is quite handsome. I worked on the photo a little, especially giving it a topography filter that gave it more depth and interesting lighting. I think the result really does have a hint of mystery and definitely a touch of elegance.

  1. Whatever you did to the photo has given it a wonderful feeling of depth and a slightly embossed look, especially around the hair. Imagine how long THAT took to arrange every morning! Your mystery lady has a very regal appearance and the symmetry of the setting and the gold framing make her an immediate focal point. A very elegant addition to your scrapbook.

  2. Agree with what you did with the photo. That gorgeous frame is a stunning contrast to the black, gray, and silver layers supporting the lovely photo. Love it all!
