I don't get as much time to scrap as I would like these days - so you know it has to be something special to get me to MAKE time. But when Tracy dangled this lovely little bauble under my nose, with the promise I could have one so long as I scrapped it - I knew I HAD to make some time. The dangle is part of the Vintage Dreams kit available here on facebook here
Luckily for me I had also just received some stunning photos taken (by a friend) of my daughter - and one of them was perfect for the dangle.
So I rummaged around through my flowers and charms from my2angels - and came up with the following...
The leaves for the flowers started off as white mulberry paper leaves - I dyed them with some Vintage Photo Distress Ink (oos) over which I sprayed some gold Glimmermist. To get the two tones - I then over daubed it with the Distress Ink again.
The flowers are a combination of 2 tone brown cherry blossoms, deep ivory hip roses (I just adore these), 2 tone chocolate brown roses and some white magnolia type flowers.The larger blossoms have been sprayed with the gold Glimmermist and then dried with a heat gun until a slightly 'toasted' colour appears. An oldie but a goodie is the laughter charming word embellishment.
To match in with the chipboard pieces - I added in some of my favourite bronze clock charms - the antique clock and the curly numbers clock. And no flower collection is complete without a butterfly - so I popped a butterfly antique filigree clip into the largest flower cluster. I also used one of the 25mm glass cabochons with a little of the patterned paper - to make one of the cluster embellishments. Another new addition is the large antique bronze key - to which I added a small two tone brown rose and some bronze chain.
The pièce de résistance of course - is the lovely brown and ivory, sparkly glass Vintage Charming Dangle that is Tracy's latest creation. It has a vintage, antique feel to it - and frankly - I would be buying two of them and using them as earrings they are so pretty.
So check them out in the store and grab your own - you know you need one (or two even).
