An Artful Morning

I've had a lovely laid back Sunday morning creating... bliss!!! The kids have been wonderful, amusing themselves, and hubby was off collecting an Ebay purchase.... A six berth tent with all the trimmings... sleeping bags, air beds, cooker, table and even a little larder.... he loves camping and now the kids are old enough he's intent on weekends away under the stars... lol!! Weather permitting of course!! So I set up my art table in our Conservatory and got busy making more cards and vintage gift tags. The little ladies in my card above, started out completely naked, but by the time I'd finished with them they were wearing stylish little vintage lace bra and panties embellished with fine glitter to cover their modesty.
I then went on to create four little gift tags using vintage images recoloured by the wonderfully talented Itkupilli . The tags are mounted onto thick cardstock covered in vintage sheet music and then sealed with Diamond Glaze for a beautiful crackled, glazed effect.
All of these will be added to my previous cards for the Vintage Shop that will be stocking some of my work. Well Hubby is now home and cracking on with the Sunday Roast, so I'm off for a glass of vino and to put my feet up...... Happy Days!!!

It's fun to see all the whimsies you are working on, and they obviously bring you much joy......

Happy camping under the stars and creating too :)

I love Itkuppilli(think it means cry baby in english)They have some fab collage sheets(I think we have the same on Amanda).My ballerina print uses one of her ladies.
Your work is, as always, flipping gooorgeous.
