Elegant Portraits

Hello :) It's been another week of vintage style scrapping for me. I just love the whole vintage thing! The following layouts use old family photos and I just love them. The lady in my first layouts looks fantastic in her outfit and I just adore the hat. I used the amazing kit, History Starts Now, which is part of the Nifty Designer's series. It's due to retire soon so go grab it now if you like it :)

I was playing with negative space with these pages. I blended three papers together in the first layout and two in the second. Next I created clusters around the photos and then placed these clusters in the corners. I am hoping to experiment more with this style in future pages as I really like the look. Creating the right background is as important as the clusters and it took me a while to get it right, but defiantly worth the time :)

I'd love to see what you've been creating too so please feel free to share a link to your projects or pages in the comments, Natasha :)


  1. I like how you have blended the papers, something I have not tried. The clusters around the photos are very effective they add more interest than just a frame on its own. You have created lovely pages again.

    1. Thank you :) I just love to sit down and play with blending, and background papers are a great way to do this. And frames are always fun for getting creative with too :)
