Tracy here with my first solo post for LLC and I am so very honoured and still excited to be a part of this fabulous talented team. I have received such a warm welcome that I already feel a part of the LLC family, and I am so very grateful for Sandy for giving me this opportunity. You will see different styles from me as I like to colour with copics, pencils and distress inks and I also love the black and white/sepia vintage images. So I will be like a box of chocolate, you never know what your going to get. I have been nicknamed the "Queen of Embellishments" and I have no idea why.......
This week the DT will be inspiring you with WINTER creations and I have chosen to colour a Magnolia image using copics. I have matted Riddersholm Fleamarket paper and used both sides of the Riddersholm Ladylike. I have also been busy stitching with my sewing machine. I added a Melissa Frances Mini Bags and Tag at the very top and decorated with some Shabby Seam binding, Cluny Fan Lace and Bakers Twine add secured with a vintage pearl brad. You will also see dangling from the brad two gorgeous Prima Velvet Trinkets. I also added a 4.5" doily, love doilies.
All the edges were distressed with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and I have dabbed some Snow Tex here and there and as Sandy has said, this is one of my favourite products.
I added some Cheesecloth under the main image and some gorgeous Scalloped Venice Lace and some Organza Roses Trim and added some pearls to the centres.
I cut out a Tim Holtz Poinsetta using the design papers and added a Vintage Findings Beaded Centre, gorgeous.
A little floral arrangement in the top right hand corner consisting of a white Gardenia and some Kort and Godt Chrysanthemum's and some Pearl String.
A close up of the tag and those gorgeous Prima Velvet Trinkets - Zephyr.
The "Giggle" ticket is from Tim Holtz Adage Tickets and just finishes it all off nicely, I think.
