Working with some really wild papers

This was actually the first try on working with the Graphic 45 papers
for my project over at OTR. I just wasn't feeling it and that's when I scrapped
this page and then created this page.
I do scrap by the seat of my pants, however, I beginning to love the 
challenge of reviving train wrecks.
Since I've been resusitating train wreck pages I figured I'd give this a go.
Especially since I had already had the mists and paints on the page by 
trying to add some texture with an onion bag and drips.
 Since there's so much drama in the background I decided 
some neutrality was called for.
I just couldn't decide how I wanted it to go.
I love rick rack and I love white. 
But...............
 I also decided that making my own die cuts was the way to go as well.
 What you don't see is that I did die cut some white
because the palette seriously needed a break in the color action.
 I also broke out some punches as well because it was fun
and fussy cut some big flowers for "filler."
I did add some liquid pearl that I'm still thinking about.
Love the pops of white and it was totally fun making my own embellishments.
Reminded me of the "old" days. LOL!
The doilies are Studio Calico and alphas - Basic Grey
the rest is Bohemian Bazaar.
And I have more where that came from.

The photo is of my gram and grandpop back in the day when 
they were dating - maybe. 
I'm just guessing its about 1927 because they were older (29) when they married.
Here they look young and in love.
And it lasted a long long time.
