Hello!!! I feel like I haven’t really posted on here in quite a while! I have so many new things to share… I just have to find time to take all the pictures I want and upload them! Today, I have two finished projects to show you :)
The first is a blue and gold trinket box I made for my friend, Teresa, of Maggie Grace Creates! This paper is so gorgeous… shiny metallic gold with pretty blue flocked birds and flowers! Of course, I embellished with posies, and also my favorite- lily of the valleys! And here is a view from the side:
Wouldn’t be complete without blingy rhinestones! Velvet blue trim and ruffled vintage lace complete the piece. Inside, which I forgot to take pictures of, is painted metallic gold and has blue felt lining the bottom. I filled this little box with some of my favorite treasures I’m guilty of hoarding like crazy!! :)
The next project is for a swap for the Yahoo group I’m in, ArtHaven. This is my Valentine Hangie Danglie :)
Isn’t the view from my porch gorgeous- NOT! Lol :) Oh well- it’s where I get the best light for pictures… For this piece, I used all my papers with roses or rose petals on them. Darn, I should have gotten some of those silk rose petals and made a background with them!! Ahh! Why do I always think of way cooler things to do *after* the whole piece is done! I’m not sure if you can see the “danglie” part in this photo, but be sure- it’s there! :)
Now I have to go and get started on some of the other swaps I’m in or going to be in as soon as I finish them :) Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend!!
