Scraps of Elegance - Lovesong

Welcome to Scraps of Elegance - February Lovesong.  
This month's kit is everything pink, romantic, girly and flirty.  I must say I found so much inspiration from the kit that creating came easy.  

Also stop by Scraps of Elegance and see our special guest for the month of February - Robin Shakoor.

Broadway Rose 1922
This was created using the SOE monthly sketch custom designed by Charlotte Jenkins.
The photo is from 1922 of Mae Murry and Monte Blue in Broadway Rose.  I am enchanted by the lighting in this very very old image.  The image is a screenshot from the production.

The photo is from Wikipedia (Expired copyright).

The metal pieces are from Bead Landing Night and Day collection that I picked up from Michaels Craft store for 99 cents in the clearance bin.  

The red crystal beads are tie backs for drapes found in the fabric section of my hobby store.

This image is from Magic Moonlight Free Images.  For Valentines day, I decided to do something fun and flirty.  I pulled out a very old stamp I have from Tattered Angels - which is a giant sprawling heart with fancy flourish - "Notes from the Garden" - Garden.    I love it, but it's a piece not often used.

I outlined the stamp with a Tim Holtz distress marker in Spun Sugar.

Vintage in Pink
This image is from Magic Moonlight Free Images.  This piece has some unique handmade pieces on it.

  • The first handmade item is the wonderful custom made butterfly that Renea Harrison makes for Scraps Of Elegance.  
  • The second is the delicate crocheted doily butterfly made and sent to me by Cathi O'Neill.  I have been waiting for the perfect time to use it and this was it.  

Come and stop by Scraps of Elegance today and create something beautiful. 

Thanks for spending time here..  I appreciate it since I know how valuable time is.
