Vintage look

>Hi everyone, I wanted to share with you a layout I made with the November Mystery Kit from Home and Garden Welcome. This kit has such a great vintage feel, but I also wanted to show you that even vintage photos you can use more of a modern look. By combining vintage with colors that are normally not associated with that kind of look, you can still can come up with something that you love! I just love this picture of an unknown relative of mine. Just a tip,  scan and use a copy of the picture, the original I kept because I was afraid the distressing folder would ruin the photo because it was fragile. Todays photo processing is perfect to distress with embossing folders.

For my photo I used the Tim Holtz embossing folder included in the kit, after I embossed it I took some Stayonz black ink and distressed the edges. One thing about distressing is you can never mess up! I also used the other folder to accent the picture which I after embossing I inked that.

I took one of the gears from the kit and in the center I put a piece of leftover paper and filled it in with the Glossy Accents Crackle.
