ELEGANCE {Create with TLC}

{DT Project for CREATE WITH TLC - NEW SET}

I have been playing again and this time with this wonderful ELEGANCE set now available over at the Create with TLC Store here. Do yourself a favour and hop over to the shop, as I guarantee you, you will love the set.  Also visit the Create with TLC's blog and become a Follower there so that you don't miss any of the wonderful free sentiments, treasure hunts, etc. that Paulette offers up on a daily basis.

Another Centre Step design. I tried to create a retro vintage look with this beautiful ELEGANCE image and sentiment which is both in the same set.

I used Copics and dry chalks for the colouring.  the folded circle embellishments were created by folding circle punch-outs.  Here is a tutorial elsewhere on my blog for these.  The design paper is from BasicGrey and the buttons, brads and raffia is from my stash.  The flourishes have been stamped with Chiswick Acrylic stamps.


Here is the complete set:


I would love to enter this into the following challenges:
SUNFLOWERFIELD DESIGNS is having a Blog Hop which will start on 15 February 2014, 9am CET on the Sunflowerfield blog during which their new images will be showcased.  I am honoured to have been asked to be a guest designer for their Blog Hop.  So watch this space. 



Leaving you with a photo I took of my niece and her youngest, Marko, nearly five years ago.


Thank you so much for your friendly visits here xxx
