November ARTastic vintage theme

 You all are going to love this month's challenge at ARTastic.  The painting is divine.

Artist: Emily Hilda (Rix) Nicholas

 (Australian, 1884–1961

Title: Picardy girl

 , ca. 1913

Medium: oil on canvas

I thought to myself that I would like to use some paint on my layout.  I picked out the mint green colour as my main focus.

Here is my layout.

 I used a Diana Wakley stencil and Soft Moss paint by Kaisercraft mixed with some basic white.
There are an awful lot of little interesting things on this layout if you look closely.
For the flower elements I have one large sticker to which I added a button centre. Then there are some other tiny little paper flowers, which I just love.

Another fun element is the paper doll. I chose a mint green dress with ruffled sleeves like the one in the painting. It ties in perfectly with the page theme.

I'm sure there will be a lot of vintagey, floral pages but this one I think is a little different. Still vintage and a bit retro too, but a bit unexpected.

Hope you join in. Head to the facebook page to enter here.
