Flocked Wallpaper

My hearts a flutter.

Why you ask.

Take a look.........vintage flocked wallpaper. Need I say more? These gorgeous velvety beauties were purchased from Donna Layton at Under the Red Roof.


Beautiful blue, glamorous black, and creamy yellow are my momentary favorites.

I have also found some reproduction flocked papers.

What do I create with these gorgeous papers?
A sea of journals and photo albums for an upcoming show,

soft pink keepsake boxes embellished with German scrap and vintage jewels,


a pink and taupe keepsake box,

picture frames,

and a pink and blue journal.

Your pieces are great! I think it's so admirable that you actually used your vintage wallpaper! I'm always tending to 'sit' on it, save it for that special occasion and then forget about it!
