Acting the Part (Echo Park Arsenic and Lace)


Alexa is a bit obsessed with The Mortal Instruments book series and has chosen to go as her favorite book character (Clary Fray) for Halloween. She created some of her costume accessories from Sculpey clay (a necklace charm and writing instrument).

Although her costume is far from spooky, this photo worked well with Echo Park's Arsenic & Lace collection. To complement the vintage designs, I crumpled the papers layered underneath my photo to give them a more authentic look. I also used a number of Echo Park cut files (spider web, elixir label, and bitty bag) on here.

Please visit the Echo Park blog to see the complete supply list for this layout (including links to the cut files I used), detail shots and a write up about how to distress papers to work with a vintage collection.

  8. I must say - I am in love with that scripty background paper!! Looks so cool as a background. It's great the way you have subtle references to the date - couple of 31's and the all hallows eve by Alexa's pic!! But my two very favorite things are the bitty bag that holds your journaling tag and the GORGEOUS rose above Alexa - the colors are subtle and subdued, yet that rose bursts with color!! So very impressed. You never fail to amaze me and when I look at your pages I tend to look at them for a long time so I can take in all the details!! You are a whiz!!! Hugs to you and Alexa!!
