Marie Antoinette Photo Frames by Meredith Hilly.
Hello everyone. I hope you are keeping warm with such cold winter weather. A great time to scrap.
My off the page project that I wish to show you is using photos of the beautiful Queen of France, Marie Antoinette, who became a symbol for the wanton extravagance of the 18th century monarchy. I wanted to capture her in these photo frames of the young and older Marie. The "Forgotten Meadows Paper " and embellishments from Megs garden are so stunning and feminine they complement her indulgence of fine possessions.
In the younger photo frame I used the beautiful blue from her dress to feature in the frame.
Blue ribbon and small blue roses brought the frame together. Lace and silver sequences gave it a classy look.
The white roses and frame were sprayed with a pearl shimmer mist that caught the sun light beautifully. I used a matt silver for the leaves and inked the edges to give it a aged look.
For the second frame I choose the chocolate and bronze colours from Maries dress to
bring the photo frame together. This colour also, I feel ,gives Marie a more mature look.
This rose I attached is like the one in the photo she is holding. Using the bronze coloured lace to frame her photo really draws your eyes to her elegance. I finished the frame with a dark ink that matched the chocolate coloured leaves.
Thank you for looking at my latest project.
