Vintage Black and White…

Vintage black and white is the timeless style that always looks so glamours. So old hollywood always so much fun. I bought the camera on the top left for some retro pictures. This board is where I found my inspiration for my black and white …..   Party…

here are the invitations I created for the party…

You can see the party here..on my simply earth blog,    http://sacredcheryl.wordpress.com/2010/10/31.

Hope you find some inspiration for your black and white event

My inspirational board

Here is my inspirational board I created with my pictures. I am using my everyday white plates, black letter cups and I  added some  cream and soft yellow pumpkins, black napkins,black spiders and some black crows . I purchased some black masks from Micheals and added a little sparkle . I found some old books from the thrift store and tor off the covers and stacked them on my piano and I am going to use them on my dinning room table and put my candle sticks on the books to create some drama. I found the perfect halter black dress, now all I need are some soft yellow gloves and red lipstick. I think I can just get some white ones and dye them soft yellow . The cake is going to be made by Cake designs by Dora. (her website on a later post ). Well it’s a start , I’ll post how to create some simple masks next week , and my shopping for flowers and some tips for a simple but elegant menu.

Welcome to The Paper Mystique

Here you will find my love for vintage classic style and my romantic side. I love the art of paper. The word mystique  in translation  means an air of mystery that may surround a person or a thing. I love paper, the beautiful old musty books from thrift stores or a resale book store, when you open the book you’re in  a world of intrigue. The old pages of these books hold a bit of mystery and a bit of the past, and so the adventure begins as I ponder each book. Maybe I would find an old love letter someone wrote, or an old post card… then the excitement and magic begins.    I am a photographer and I create custom photography invitations, save the dates, photo books, note cards and other French papertries.
