 "milled lavender", Ranger Distress Ink "tattered rose", and "pine needles"
Teresa Collins Blingage "Miranda´s Jewels"and "Ali´s Pins"
A piece of cotton fabric in violet, lilac or/and claret, needle, yarn, and
crocheted cotton ribbon in claret
Flowers and leaves, scissor, glue, foam pads

Step 1:
Stamp the motif "Christmas Rose" from La Blanche with Archival Ink Black on
the stamping paper and color it in carlet, lilac, tattered rose and the middle
in orange. It doesn´t matter which method you use, whether Aquarell colors
or Copic Markers. When done, cut out the motif with a little edge. Now glue
the crocheted claret cotton ribbon to the edge of the backside.
The ribbon has to be glued crimpy, then lay aside.

Step 2:
Take the scrapbooking paper and draw the cutout of the frame for a smaller
background paper. Stamp with the "small line" of Letterpress Plate" Petite" and
Distress Ink "dusty concord" to the middle of the cutout.  Above this line stamp
with the Sizzix  "Ornamental Elements" Letterpress Plate and "dusty concord" 2
times next to one another for making a border.  Then stamp the chair from the
Letterpress Plate "Damask" as well with Memento Ink "Tuxedo Black" to the left
side beneath the line, like shown in the picture. When all is done, color the whole
paper with Distress Inks "dusty concord", "Victorian velvet", "milled lavender" and
"tattered rose" a little at the edges and a little bit in the middle, but not too much.

Step 3:
Take the piece of cotton fabric, cut out a piece larger then 8cm x 21 cm.  You can
use a sewing machine or make it by hand with needle and yarn.  I prefer by hand
because the stitches are much finer.  From the remaining fabric you’ll make a valance
for the curtain.   For this you must frazzle one side of an 3cm x 8cm piece of fabric,  
fold it in the middle and glue it together. Now plug a pin from Teresa Collins "Ali´s Pin"
angular through the curtain and glue the flower from Teresa Collins "Miranda´s Jewels" on top. 

Step 4:
Flute the curtain and glue him at the right side and the top of the frame, but only
the edges, not the whole curtain. Also affix the valance on top of the frame. 
Mount the Victorian Woman from Glitz Design with 3D Foam Pads to the paper beside the curtain.
Step 5:
Apply the La Blanche Christmas Rose also with 3D Foam Pads  to the right
corner and stick 2 of "Ali´s Pins" angular under the motif through the ribbon.
Finally you can arrange some flowers  below in the left corner. Their colors must
be the same as the Distress Inks you used for the background paper.  For  the
leaves I made die cuts with the QuicKutz  "Damask" and the Marianne Design
Creatables "Floral" and edited a little bit with Distress Ink "pine needles".
