New Members, a ' Slider ' and a Page for TCR #99

Meg has announced her new Design Team and I am very happily back for another 6 months along with some lovely and very creative ladies now joining the original team....
Eila Sandberg
Heather Jacob
Yuka Hino
Gabrielle Pollacco
Vickie Alberto
Cathy Cafun

Here are 2 of my Feb. projects for Meg's theme being "Vintage Gentleman".
A card for February, one you could send to the man in your life,using, ATC A4 paper....Vintage French Couples and A4 Collage paper....Suitcases for Travelling. Added Lace, a Vintaj Brass Scrolled Ornate Corner, Satin Ribbon and beautiful Garnet Forget Me Not Velvet Flowers, all from Meg's Garden.
This is a "glass slide mailer". It's what you put a glass slide ( you know, same as you used to use in science and biology ) in to mail it. It's like a little folder, very cute, very robust and a lot of fun to paint, ink, paper, emboss or decorate in any way your creative heart tells you to. I've used Meg's Garden A4 Collage Papers, Travel Labels and Suitcases For Travelling.

This page for TCR #99 has been done with the paper,  as usual being the main 'ingredient'...I love patterned paper and have to get a grip, and stop myself from just using every piece I own if it's in the right colour for a project. I have also stencilled, colour washed, inked and misted........and I followed the sketch.

Thanks for dropping by.......I wish you all a happy, productive and super creative week. xx
