My 55 year old wedding gown was caught in a flood many years ago. It has since been washed. Now I am making a scrapbook of family brides for my about to be married granddaughter. Any suggestions on how to incorporate some lace and silk onto my page?
For my granddaughter's album on her prom page, I made an enlarged picture of her in her prom dress that she made, then gathered some of the fabric to make it into a dress that I adhered to the photo. It turned out cute and she has the "real thing" for her memories. It looks better in person than in a picture :>) (It's the big upper-left picture on the LO.)
Now you've got me thinking about doing this with my own wedding dress, except I don't know if any of the gds will want to wear it for their wedding sometime. Maybe I shouldn't cut a piece out of it yet :>)
I keep thinking about your suggestion. Is it pictured anywhere on scrapbook.com? Pat
Hi Pat, no I'm sorry. It was a page I made for a friend for her daughter's wedding album and I don't have their permission to share it.
All I did was to take a 3" wide strip of the tulle, like tutu fabric that had been cut off. I ran a thread along one edge and gathered it slightly. I placed it in a circle on the page and put two portrait photos together in the middle to hide the gathered edge.
Actually I have a card that I used a similar effect for. See if this link works? Card
I have seen people put the satin on the page..cover half the page with the satin & put tulle over it,,or lace over it..I have dress fabric too that I am going to do that, You could cover the whole page with the satin or lace use it as a background. She is going to love it.
