Hi everyone, Melissa here with a 12 x 12 layout as my entry for the More Than Words April 2017 Main Challenge, Dream & Black/White + 1.     I was inspired by the elegant color combination of the challenge. I wanted to do something kind of lacy, and a vintage wedding photo seemed to fit the bill.

To make this page I used paper from the 7 Dots Writer's Block collection. I appied gauze and gesso, then added seed beads, micro beads, vintage metal glitter,lace, stamps, Tim Holtz rub ons, pearls,mica flakes, and rhinestones.  

I applied some texture paste with a stencil but it's kind of hard to see, it's in the middle of the page.

My plus one color is gold.  The title work is made up of Tim Holtz letters.

Thank you so much for looking, and have a great week!
