I found the Scrap Magic Challenge so very inspiring.
First was the challenge of using two contrasting elements: Lace and Wood
The wooden frame is my wood element, and I painted it to resemble distressed wood and then inserted some small antique lace behind the frame.
I recently rented a movie entitled, “Farewell, My Queen” about two days in the life of Marie Antoinette’s Reader during some pretty intense social upheaval that was going on during Marie’s reign of power. A scene that resonated with me was when Marie brought out her scrapbook containing snippets of lovely embellished fabrics and some embroidery ideas for future elegant gown designs. I don’t know if Marie actually had a scrapbook of this nature, although I am told that this was common practice of ladies of her stature during that time, but if she had, I would have loved to have gone through her book of textile treasures.
Here’s a picture of the Scrap Magic Challenge:
