Mildred & Maurice


Love is in the air with Valentine's Day just around the corner so imagine a long-distance romance between pen pals, Mildred and Maurice, who made plans to meet at Le Grand Hotel in Monte Carlo.

My inspiration for this creation came from Tim's February tag and features images from his Photo Booth collection.


I distressed the photos and scratched over the surface to create some texture and design. That, along with a variety of paper ephemera helped to complete their story.


The background technique is worth mentioning as I really like the result. Made by covering black cardboard with sewing pattern tissue paper, it gives off a vintage tone which seems perfect for this ensemble.
