I'm on the Tresors de Luxe design team and they sent me a boatload of gorgeous lace and pretty embellishments.



Here I've altered two small canvas', just 4" and 2", and made something pretty and shabby to hang on the wall.



I teastained and white washed the lace to give it a more vintagy look Smiley

These are beautiful!  It would be so neat to have photos of one's ancestors to do something like this with.... OMGosh.  Shocked  I need to make something like this for my MIL. She has LOADS of old family photos like these and TOTALLY digs this style of art.  Perfect Christmas gift idea!

Thanks, Knicker!  Grin
