Shabby Chic Winter Collage

All my beautiful vintage ephemera supplies from Tanja from Sigrid Studios.

I had so much fun with this was my first attempt at creating a collage. I love the Shabby Chic style, the color pink and snow, so I thought I would combine the three. I had this shadow box picture frame for about 15 years hanging in my bathroom, so I took it apart and painted it with ASCP in Old White. I used some vintage ephemera generously supplied to me by Tanja from Sigrid Studios, her etsy shop....and...I want to thank Eleanor Erickson from A Bit of Heaven for letting me play. here's what I did. I used things I already had around the house...a painted pine cone...old vintage jewelry...some old burlap trees my Mom had for years...I made my first paper flower using paper that Tanja supplied and in the middle of that flower I have a cameo earring...on the trees I have vintage buttons and an Angel...I made an angel using paper supplied by Tanja and a pink bow that was part of the original frame...and the "SNOW" is Epsom Salts glued on with Mod Podge. Please excuse my lack of photography next project hopefully will be photography lessons. Again, I want to thank you Ele and Tanja, for everything...this was fun!! Hope to play again soon!  Merry Christmas!   Please visit these ladies, Tanja...  (guest supplier) and Eleanor Erickson...
