I'm very fond of vintage images, and this one is from the Marianne sheet of vintage ladies. I made this easel card for one of my oldest friends, Valerie, who is still teaching dancing. Michael is still Dance Captain in Billy Elliott in the West End, some six years on, and remains busy with his young baby and Saturday stage school: not quite sure when he fits in some sleep!
Well obviously a bit more stickle glitter around the edges of the paper, a sliced up doiley (I betcha can't see the join!), some very pretty organza lace (ancient, from my stash), a few WOC roses, Petaloo and bridal flowers coloured with copics, some die-cut swirls, a punched out MS heart and a few pearls!
I can't do justice to the real colours in the winter light (or lack of it), but grab a pack and come drool with me - these babies are gorgeous! Normally I would sit and stroke these for a few weeks before butchering them, but I was very brave, and galloped straight in. I really can't do Less is More though. I have tried to keep it fairly simple in layout and let the paper speak for itself, so it's maybe not as busy in style as it might be.
Thanks very much for coming to visit my blog this week. I'm having a quiet week next week, as part two of my back operation is coming this Friday, so I'll have to take things a bit easier. More time to come and visit everyone's blogs I hope ...... If you join as a follower please let me know, as I've lost all my followers pictures again. I got very excited a few weeks ago when they all came back, but it was only for a day, and then they went again. So sad!
