Create memories for Country View Crafts

For my second offering over at Country View Crafts where the theme is shabby chic, I have continued to use my favourite neutral palette, plenty of ephemera and another of my own collection of vintage photos. So without further ramblings here is my make :

This is completed in the same sort of way as my first piece for the shabby chic theme which can be found here .

So for the background another piece of mdf cut to a square...and covered again with old music paper, softened with picket fence .. so instead of step by step ...as the process is similar ...a focus on some of the details ..

Again I sued one of my collection of vintage photos ...and even added the piece from the back of where the photo was taken . i added her inside a cabinet card from idea-ology range, some handmade outer flowers with bought swirl inside flowers...a flashcard...plenty of lace and some rhinestone trim..

I layered up different lace trim and some mother of pearl buttons for the vintage shabby chic feel...I hope ! x

More buttons added at the side..

 And here she is ... I wonder who she was and if she would like this ? who knows?

Anyway there is still plenty of time for you to play along with the shabby chic theme...over at Country View Crafts and you could be the lucky winner of a voucher for the wonderful Country View Crafts shop....and you could be a guest designer..

keep those fingers inky!
and those hearts full x
