'The beauty of a rose'

Yesterday I started reading a book by dutch author Thera Coppens about princess Sophie van Oranje-Nassau (1824-1897) who married Carl Alexander von Saksen-Weimar-Eisenach. It inspired me to make this spread.
I used several glossy acryl paints and a lace stencil to make the pattern of the lace in white. I printed the text and distressed the words. I did the same with the picture of 'la mode illustrée'.
