I started off with some beautiful Maja Design papers, this collection is called Vintage Summer Basics. Lots of lovely floral prints, text designs and scuffed up edges...all my favorites! I made the collage panel using Splitcoast Stampers current 'Try a New Technique' challenge...Paper Mosaic. I cut out a kraft panel and then the floral panel. The floral panel was cut up into squares, and placed on the kraft sheet after I painted it with some Modge Podge. I then painted another layer of the glue on top of the design after I arranged all the squares to my liking. Then there's a strip of antique lace and Stampin' Up!'s pink gingham ribbon strung across the top. I tied it off with a bow, some hemp and two Zva Creative pink flowers. The medallion was made with an Alteration's Rosette die and I mounted it on a Pinking Circle Nestability. The edges are all sponged and I dotted some liquid pearls on the points of the circle. The sentiment is courtesy of Paper Sweeties' November release...this set is called Santa Claus. I also added a Zva Creative flourish to the bottom and I outlined the sentiment panel and collage panel with Silver Stickles. I modeled the design after this week's Mojo Monday sketch and the inspiration is from the Shabby Tea Room's 'Shabby Chic Holiday'.
