Some of you knows that I am a lucky pupil :-) in Heather Tracy`s 

I have shown my cover created after her instructions, and wonderful videos , and
thought you maybe would see this new page for the book.
If you visit the course ,and sign up, you will see ,that I "stole"
some of Heathers, ideas, but created in my own style, so you will find much
more bold colored, and fantastic creations from her !!

Here it is grey card stock sewed onto an old piece of  fabric and lace,
after having been colored with Infusions .
The wonderful stamp is called Buttons 4 , and my tea tag
suited the stamp beautifully.

I stenciled 1802 from a new  great stencil by Scrapcosy , which I bought from
That`s Crafty  UK   whom , among a huge amount ,of their own and other`s products , also is selling PaperArtsy   products.                      

The embossed dandelion  ,sending little "children" into the world,
was for me also suitable, with this big family  :-)


Here ,today the sun is shining , and that is so lovely !!
I wish you all a happy and fine weekend.

Hugs and love

Wonderful layers in this vintage page, Dorthe - it's so evocative of another time and place. The textured dandelion is a wonderful touch, and I'm glad to see you've discovered the Scrapcosy products at PaperArtsy - I thought they would be right up your street!

The dolls are nervously awaiting your inspection at Words and Pictures!!

This is so beautiful Dorthe, it incorporates everything I love - the vintage style, dandelion seed heads and old lace. It's perfect in every way!

Oh Dear! I've had my head in the sand, dearest Dorthe! I missed this lovely post, and I'm so glad I finally saw it! Your work inspires me on many levels, not least of which is the generosity with which you share your appreciation for all other artists. Thank you SO much for your kind mention of our little class! But especially, thank you for being YOU! xox

Absolute vintage loveliness, Dorthe... you've combined all those PaperArtsy products to perfection. The Buttons stamp s a wonderful one, and I love that textured dandelion - what a wonderful stencil. Beautiful, subtle work - it's clear you're really enjoying that course.
