A Place For Her Musings

Hello Everyone
As Sunday’s post was quite lengthy I thought I’d make this scheduled post a more brief affair.
Back in July, June at Dezinaworld announced a new png set consisting of 7 Marie Antionette images., now if you are fans of Marie then this set will be irresistible.
I selected the Marie I wanted to work with, setting her against a postcard image available from French Kissed Postcards.  After printing  I added some stamping using stamps from Oxford Impressions.  (Versailles plate). The notebook was covered with canvas which I  painted and stamped, layered with lace, a paper doily then the postcard image was added trimming it with picot edged ribbon and more lace.

.The bow (Oxford Impressions’ The Dressmaker) was stamped onto found paper. A ribbon bookmark was added as a finishing touch.
Thank You for visiting today and also for the lovely feedback on the altered mailer.

    Glorious Lynne! I thought the bow was made from ribbon until I read it was stamped. (I personally see no reason to apologize for the length of Sunday’s post. It was appropriate to the project.) Have a great week! Best, Yvonne

    Oh my word Lynne! This is breathtakingly beautiful, sigh… With a lovely notebook like this a girl should really practise her handwriting before jotting down notes. It should most certainly be swirly and slanted (in my view anyway 😉 Oh, what a joy it would be to find Marie’s real love letters in it! Or is my imagination running wild now? Take care, Ira

    So very lovely,dear Lynne,
    A wonderful notebook, to add only beauty inside.
    I wouldn`t have guessed the bow is of paper, looks so real, and I love the blue flower you gave beautiful Marie on her dress, and she is wonderful placed on the old Carte Postale-.
    Gorgeous my friend.
    Hug, Dorthe
