My Boy ~ LO for Tresors de Luxe

A hearty Hi to all my Blog friends!

Today I want to show a LO I made using several beautiful laces that I received from Lucy's Etsy shop, Tresor de Luxe, in my DT parcel for the month...

The photo's are of my son and my brother from way back when Francois was only about 3 and Mike must have been about 17 at that stage...The two of them were so close to each other and I often wonder how it would have been to see the two of them grow old together...Mike's untimely passing has left such a big void in Francois life.

For this page I used the following papers from Pion Design,
Silent Night: Winter
                                Nativity Scene

Did some hand stitching and paper folding and curling again. The clock is one of the new Prima Resin pieces.

Also did a little bit of stencilling with texture paste.

I absolutely love these Flower Embellishments from Tresors de Luxe...They are so Darling with their Ribbon Flower, Leaves, Twine, Grasses and some Beads...

The tiny piece of lace was left over from my previous project...Flowers are from Prima.

This must be my all time favourite from the shop! It is the most beautiful cluster of flowers and dangling vines, and look how pretty it is with the added half Pearls.

I cut this Piece of Ivory Venice Lace apart and used the top part as a border and placed the appliqués as elements on the page. 

I painted one of the appliqués with Tokreen to stiffen it and formed it into a Tussie Mussie for my Flower Embellishment. I inked it with a light blue ink and stuffed some fibres in it.

These are the products I used from the Tresors de Luxe Etsy Shop...
