D.C. by Dana Tatar
Hi! Dana here today sharing a layout today. I moved just outside Washington D.C. about a year ago and have been slowly exploring our Nation's capital. I had a lot of fun pulling vintage papers and embellishments that brought to mind our Founding Fathers from my Zeus and Zoe Kit to pair with this photo of my daughters and their cousins that I took on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.
This piece of paper is dated June 24, 1921! This is by far my favorite element on the page. This piece of paper is naturally aged and has a fantastic old paper smell.
I had a lot of fun playing with texture, adding layers of muslin, burlap and whipped spackle.
I tucked chipboard feathers, brass buttons and ribbon around these gorgeous Manor House Creations flowers. This embellishment cluster is reminiscent of cravats, vintage military uniforms, and quill pens. I added plenty of black ink splatters to finish the page.
Thanks for stopping by today! Please check out the Zeus and Zoe social media sites for more inspiration. If you'd like to pick up a one-of-a-kind Zeus and Zoe Kit for yourself, stop by the Zeus and Zoe Etsy Shop or email Marivic Clifton for a personal order.
