"Ready for the Ball" for Scrap Around The World

NOVEMBER 2014 challenge at Scrap around the world

The image we had to be inspired by was just so gorgeous and too hard to pass up. I just fell in love with it.

Here is my layout.

I wanted my layout to seem like you were looking at an antique dressing table top. Wear lapel pins and corsages is quite a traditional idea, as is going to a Ball.

First of all I was inspired by the lace curtaining that looks like doilies. I've misted the background paper over a doily with glimmer mist to make it sparkle. I have scattered around some petals, a row of pearls and some pearls. I have a hand made lace flower that I made and a row of crocheted trim as well. I also have some sheet music pp in the corners. There is always dancing at a Ball so the music paper is appropriate.
