People Who Leave A Great Impression On Us

Shabby Valentine Collage

Yikes!!  My project today is so far out of my comfort zone (lol!)
But boy, did I have a ton of fun putting this together.
I started with the frame, Great Impressions stamp, 
and one sheet of lovely Prima paper and just kept adding. 

Isn't this a wonderful image? - it's called Romantic Collage from Great Impressions.
I stamped it twice on ivory paper, once in Rich Cocoa and once in Distressed Victorian Velvet.   I fussy cut out the entire image in the Rich Cocoa and cut just the framed portion in the Velvet.   My frame is lightly sponged with Glimmer Mist.  All the papers including my doily were sponged around in Antique Linen. The outside edges of my card are painted white, sanded and then sponged.  Love that look!  Then I just played!  Really, you've just got to move things around...
 and around until it works for you...

(vintage button, twine and ric-rac from my stash)

The shabby chic look is one I glad I challenged myself with it!

Think about what You can do to challenge yourself creatively. 
Let me know about to come and take a peek!

Have a wonderfully crafty day!

love the little details like the red dots around the "14" on the calendar. All the pieces work well together. Thanks for the inspiration.

Lovely piece, Jenny! I LOVE's like a grown up version of Hidden Picture (or "Where's Waldo?") I didn't see the doily at first, but it's the little details that make a collage so wonderful.
