Tuesday's Tip-Victorian Flair

I was asked to create a Victorian/Vintage Christmas Mini Album for a co-worker.
Which leads me to this week's tip
Sometimes you need to add more.
Below is my album--first attempt

My take on Victorian involved
*  Dessert Sand ink to distress all the edges
*  Images stamped off the corner of most pages
*  Paper ribbons
*  Gold polka dot washi tape
*  Dessert Sand Cardstock 
*  Retired Pear & Partridge paper

Now I think it turned out pretty nice, but not really
so I added more stuff
and more stuff and now, I think it's leaning toward Victorian.
see below

So this week's tip...to achieve a Victorian Flair, dig out bits and pieces of lace, buttons & add layers to your layout.  

Thanks for stopping by. Please leave a comment. I love to hear what you think.
