Adriana plays Vintage with the new Elements

Hello Bloggers

Adriana has taken the new Elements papers & created these awesome tags & a Card.

'Hi there everyone,
Today I have created for you all a card and framed tag project.
Using the some of the new Vintage Elements papers from Meg's Garden.
I just love vintage images and could not wait to play
with these elements.
First, are 2 vintage tags which I framed inside
inside a Kaisercraft  beyond the page photo frame.

I applied gesso around the edges of frame and while still
wet I gathered pieces of muslin, using the gesso to adhere the muslin
to the frame, this gives a very shabby effect to it.
The background paper inside each pocket is the
 Dusty Pink Roses P6341 - The Rose Garden collection available
from Meg's Garden

Vintage Frame

The tags are covered with the Music sheets and Old Writing 1 - P2061 papers
which are NEW available from Meg's Garden website

Close up of Vintage Lady Tag

I covered the tag with the Old writing paper
stamped the La Blanche fence and lightly coloured
with distress markers
Cut image and ornate tag then
place the image inside the tag
I then adhered photo corners around
the Ornate tag.

Materials all from Meg's Garden website for the Vintage Beauty tag

Close up of Vintage Child Tag

I covered the tag with the Music sheet , inked around the whole tag
I fuzzy cut the ornate tag and place the photo
image of the French child inside
cut out the flowers and bird from collage sheets
