For my project, which can be a free standing piece or a wall hanging, I started with a vintage image of a lovely bird's nest with eggs from The Graphic Fairy. Cutting a Pocket Watch Frame/Sized Circles from white chipboard, I then ran it through the Springtime Texture Fade and sponged the image and the Pocket Watch frame with Vintage Photo. I hand cut a little tattered banner and stamped it with Tumbled Glass DI using the Simple Sayings set from Tim Holtz. Using the Melissa Frances cream plated ribbon, I glued it to the back of the Pocket Watch Frame.
I used Scattered Straw distress stain to color the shabby seam binding as well as the tiny Venise tri-but applique. The plaid button is also from my boutique. Once assembled, I glued it onto a distressed square of paper from the Pion Design set For Mother and then layered all of that over a square cream doily. Finally, the entire piece was glued to a piece of white/ivory corrugated cardbard.
Don't forget, Melissa Frances products are the Friday Focus this week and are 15% off through Thursday.
