Hello everyone, Welcome & thanks for visiting,
Annette Gearside here and I am delighted to be Guest Designer today for 
I am working with the new RITZ COLLECTION  
'GATSBY' pad, stamps and 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 and 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 emphasise the angular lines. 

I really got into the mood of the era and 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 and 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.
Happy Scrapping
