This is one of the items I whipped up for the promotion--I am going to have a hard time parting with this one!! The background is original vintage sheet music from 1896--the song is (translated to english) Dancing on the Green--which I thought was perfect because tulips, in the natural, seem to be dancing on the green grass!! I've added a print of one of my favorite poems by Mary McNeil Fenollaso:
and from the arid scene
Sprang rich and verdant bowers
'til all the earth was
soft with green-
and there were flowers.
I fussy cut some pretty tulips and a big purple bow from a vintage greeting card and added them to the poem and added them to the collage-- set above the sheet music so it all has a 3-d effect. Add in a little bit of unused vintage wedding trim (I got the trim from a gal who was selling off her Grandma's sewing stuff and Grandma used to sew for other's , including wedding attire.) It's framed in a cute little shadowbox framed that I distressed to give it that nice old-timey feel. It's available HERE.
Here's another project I did for the promotion--come on--you know I had to do something embroidered! lol This pretty tulip is from a vintage Vogart pattern--stitched up in blue onto natural onasburg linen and bordered with a pretty tulips feedsack print. It is a padded pouch so it'd be a great camera or other gadget pouch. It's available HERE.
Don't forget to sign up for the GIVEAWAY drawing (one post down)--just leave a comment in THAT THREAD to be entered--and tell me your favorite color combo (just doing a little un-scientific market research!) lol
