Evening Crafters,

I must apolgise for my post being so late, but each time I pressed the shoot button on my camera it blurred the picture and I have been tearing my hair out, literally.  Anyway I left Hubby playing with the settings this morning whilst I went to work and he seems to have made something happen, lol. 

O.K. little rant over, the theme this week is "Summer" and Summer to me means sun and the yes the beach/sea, so I have used this very apt vintage image and applied some of those cute little seashells that Sandy has in store along with a Vial bottle, so now it's all summery to me.  I didn't quite have enough blue embellishments so I used my copic airbrush system and added a touch of blue to the Hortensias and one of the little seashells.

I have used the Pion Design Vintage Garden Ornament in Blue.  I added a grey crotchet flower and added the cream leaf from the Prima fabric flower Chantelle Doily set along with some of those dainty Hortensia's, flower spray and a Kort and Godt Rolled Rose in Blue.

The little ensemble to the right consists of the seashells, Hortensia, the new Roman Numerals with some aged Aqua frantage,  one of my favourite colours, an Idea-ology corked Vial bottle, which I will add a little sentiment in later and I cut out the flower ticket from the Vintage Garden 6x6.  Just above this collection is a Pion Design Butterfly and a metal rose, also frantaged in Aged Aqua in the centre.  The doily just under this section has also some aged aqua scattered, looks fab in real life.

And here we have some of Sandy's internationally famous vintage seam binding, finsihed off with a clay heart and 2mm string pearls and attached to a Magnolia So Wrapped Lovely Tag.  Lots of Gesso and a sprinkling or two of snow tex, here and there hehehe.

The beautiful pearl lace at the bottom has been layered onto some Ribbon Picot and don't they look like they were made for each other.

Thank you for visiting and I'm sorry I was so late, dam Cameras!  Be sure to check back tomorrow, I know Tina will have a fabulous Vintage creation that I just know I will be drooling over.

Hugs Tracy x
