|My Icelandic Great-Grandmother Bjorg|
For this layout I used a Riddersholm Design paper for the background.
|Riddersholm Design - Barn Market - Worn|
These are the dies and punch I used:
|Prima - Parisian Lace|
|Lifestyle Crafts - Nesting Doily Rectangles|
|Martha Stewart - French Scroll|
These are the chipboard pieces I used:
|Dusty Attic - Corner Flourish #3|
|Dusty Attic - Fancy Trim #1|
I heat-embossed both chipboard pieces with Ranger Antiquities Embossing Powder in the California Stucco colour and inked around the edges with Fawn Colorbox Chalk Ink. I glued some Fuzzy Navel Prills to the corner flourish using Artquest's Perfect Paper Adhesive (PPA) Matte. I poured some of the PPA into another bottle with a finer tip so I could apply it more precisely.
The roses are by Prima (Solid Rose, Blush Gold and Crown Gold).
Thank you so much for taking a look today!

Tracy Where do you purchase the vintage lace?? And there are 4 white spindle looking items on the Climbing layout of your son were they lace also? Thanks again, love your work and inspiration. DeniseReplyDelete
Hi Denise. I've purchase my lace from a number of different places over the years and some of them are closed now. I have bought quite a bit from an Etsy store called mingmingworld but they are temporarily closed for a few months. That's where I got the lace that looks like spindles and the pink lace from this layout. I'm not sure but I think I may have got the wide piece of lace in this layout from an Etsy shop called TresorsdeLuxe. The Etsy shops called LaceBeauty and NaturalBalcony also have some beautiful lace. I hope that helps.Delete
