Vintage

it's Vintage this week for 3 Muses. These great grandparents are old enough to be called vintage don't they?
I've dug up an oldie -( I mean the layout) - as i was working on a new vintage piece trying to use the techniques of Jana Mortons class Blending and Beyond  which I just started. However It did not go as I wanted so I gave up for now.

Het is altijd even doorbijten als je weer iets nieuws leert hè Ellen maar wanneer 't dan lukt !! Dan kun je zo trots zijn op jezelf !!
Mooi gedaan weer !!

Hey, I AM OLD ENOUGH TO BE CALLED VINTAGE and some of our lovely ladies are even more vintage than Ozstuff.
Your own photos are perfectly vintage and you have given them a lovely setting. Love the aged, slightly grungy look.
