Vintage style layouts of Budapest...

So I hope that I have whet all your appetites telling you how many layouts I have completed in the last few weeks whilst I have been off work. I have been completing lots of 8.5 by 11.5 layouts as this is my favourite size and I am still scrapping our fantastic mini break in Budapest (more about it here) Perhaps because I have been listening to lots of retro tunes on magic fm I have gone for some quite vintage inspired layouts.

The first layout is about the Children's Railway and the little conductors on board who were trying to sell us lots of cute little trinkets about the railway. I used a variety of Daisy D vintage papers, washi tape, ribbon and I even got the needle and thread out and sewed some buttons on. I photoshopped the picture and added a sepida tint so that it has a nostalgic feel to it - which is the feeling this railway evoked in me.

The second layout features one of those classic pictures taken in front of you - when we were on the cable car on the way down from the railway stop. We managed a better one with the instax mini and so I decided to mix it up - I also added a generous dose of bakers twine around the picture and then just tucked the instax into it. I used one of my gorgeous Jenni Bowlin journalling card spots as my title and then expressions stickers for the captions.

I am linking up to Purple Mailbox.com love linky. I have just discovered her blog recently and I am in awe of the amount of layouts she manages to create with so many details and lots of paint and misting effects. She has a totally different style of scrapping to mine, but yet I have picked up some good ideas on her blog. I am looking forward to seeing what everyone else has created!
Join my on Monday for my new Messy Monday's tutorials beginning with STAMPING WITH PAINTS some layouts and ideas that I have been playing around with recently.
Have a great weekend - even if you're a Brit and are caught in all of this crazy rain!
