Hello Everyone, Vicki here today to get a little "Retro" love going. Fancy Pants has a number of lines that have a fun Retro vibe going on, but for my card and layout today I choose the "Memories Captured" Collection. So many fun colors and patterns to choose from, to get me in the mood to create something "groovy" lol
I'll start with my layout first.
Memories Captured paper Photos/Memories Captured paper Chalked Art/Memories Captured paper Say Cheese/Memories Captured paper All Smiles/Memories Captured paper Strips/Memories Captured paper Panorama/Memories Captured paper Cards/ Memories Captured paper Snapshots/Memories Captured Tape Stickers/ Memories Captured Label Stickers/Memories Captured Ephemera Pack/Memories Captured Button Set/ Memories Captured Sticker Fundamentals/ Black Alpha Stickers
This photo is of my darling niece Neely and her fiancé Alan. Although the actual photo wasn't a polaroid, that was the look I wanted to go with my retro style so I gave my photo a "yellowish" tint in Photoshop, cropped it square, and then trimmed it with the white border.
Next, I have some fun mixing these fun patterned papers, then add this strip of cameras to create a border. I decided to add Glossy Accents to the centers of the lens for a fun effect. ( but I wont do that until my layout is finished so there is less chance of me smearing it while it's still wet).
Circles scream retro, so I've cut circles from the "Panorama" paper. and added it to my layout using foam squares to give it dimension.
There are so many different Fancy Pants papers and elements to choose from to make creating a retro style layout easy peasy!
Now, to share my card using the same line.
I just cant get enough of these cute little cameras in the Memories Captured Ephemera Pack. I decided I really wanted them to be the focal point of the card. The patterned photo frames work great for photos of course but I also love using them on cards. They are the perfect size.
Below you can see better what I was explaining above, what I was doing on the layout, by putting Glossy Accents on the camera lens. I also did it on the camera, lens and flash on the card. It adds a little extra interest and dimension.
Thanks for stopping by today. You should be all ready to create something a little retro now, so put on some oldies and get started :)
