Hello friends

Hope you are all good!
Wow it's  been such a busy couple of weeks here,
 I'm only just catching up with blogging, adding more chaos to my 
desk and finishing off some makes that have been waiting patiently for me to finish......
(I can't believe we are nearly half way through March!)

Today I wanted to share this vintage make...
I started of with a piece of 8x8 paper from paper stash from Dapper
I created several layers using gesso, collage medium and distress paints, I stamped in coffee archival ink,  using the ledger stamp set (Tim Holtz)
The image is from the Idea-ology Paper dolls.....
she was painted using distress paint and distress crayons.
The image is attached with 3D foam pads (sadly the picture doesn't pick it up too well)
The flowers/butterflies are from the Idea-ology ephemera packs....some really great vintage images!
The letters are also Idea-ology and were distressed using alcohol ink and distress paints

To finish I framed it using a Panel frame which I gave the distressed treatment added a mini crown to the image (how cute are they?! from Idea-ology) 
I also added an old vintage key from my own collection!.
I love vintage and thoroughly enjoyed getting stuck into creating this one!

As always feel free to leave a comment, I appreciate each and everyone.
Wishing you a fabulous weekend!
Bye for now
