Tag Tuesday and White Wednesday

This week's Tag Tuesday Challenge was " SCHOOL RELATED ", but not just any old school related stuff. Oh no,, not that easy, lol, we were given a list of different subjects from which we had to pick, and I chose HISTORY CLASS.

As we spend a lot of our time at the cottage in France, it had to be French History of course, and knowing that so many of you love Marie Antoinette, I made her my subject for the school tag. The background is a French school book cover, the building is of course the Petit Trianon, Marie Antoinette's residence at Versailles, and the beautiful image of her is from the Graphics Fairy, who else, lol -

On to WHITE WEDNESDAY. I didn't really have anything apart from yet more lace ( and you don't want to see more lace, do you? ) to show, but I was in crafting mood, so I decided to make a small collage on canvas. I used vintage music paper, a sweet little image of a young girl, a lovely old doily, lacy bits, a couple of jewellery elements and a few sparkly accents -

Oh my goodness, both are *wonderful!* I never would have thought to go in that direction with the TT theme, but it's just perfect! And I love your creamy vintage textile canvas... so perfect for showing off those beautiful lace doilies!
