...just me for you, and you for me... Smiley

Inspired by my 'family portraits' http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=418605.0 I made some more with my favouite things...cups of tea! Cheesy

They're 5x7 boards covered with pages from an old Italian book (that somebody had very kindly left handwritten notes in), inked a quick teacup sketch and painted a little with watercolours. Then I added some vintage lace, bits of scrapbooking paper, vintage buttons, and the wee teabag tags hanging over the cups.







Thanks for looking Smiley

Thank you for sharing. It has so many layers and points of interest. Seems that I see something different about it with each look. Have just discovered old books for my own papercraft and I love this.
