Helen's LO introduces us to Ellen Kean

Hello Bloggers

Helen explains her LO & you must read her journaling to meet Ellen Kean.

'I used the glorious Dreaming in the Meadows collection “Dreaming in Mulberry”
The strip I fussy cut and used to trim the top of the page.
The beautiful “Emperor pin”  is tucked into the cluster on the right 
The “Small rectangular Parisian frame”, I painted with Croco crackle and burnished with some gold acrylic glaze'

Other products used
Prima flowers & crystals, Martha Stewart punch, Ribbon
Life’s Journey Stamp
Wild Asparagus - Pale pink cardstock
Glimmermist - Pashmina

Tattered Angels Chalboard - Astrid

What a beautiful LO & I love the historical story - well done Helen. The embellishments used around the frame are gorgeous & lift the seriousness of Ellen's face in sepia.

Just beautiful

Bye for now
