Create a Unique Necklace with me!

I created this necklace on a YouTube video that
you can see here!  I used Seam Binding, 
cheese cloth,  coffee dyed lace and some of 
the beautiful trims from the Gone Artsy Zibbet 
store.  I added the Faux Pearl and Rhinestone Cup 
Chain GA287 and some white pearls that I had.  
I used the Pearl and Rhinestone Oval 
Cabochon GA109 ontop of the Eight Point 
Star Applique GA170 and some dyed
 seam binding on one side. 
I added a metal bird from my stash.
I also used our favorite Seed Bead Trim GA57 and 
the Glass Hollow Domed 2pc. Cabochon GA42 that 
I made into a bird cage. I wrapped wire around it 
and added the beautiful Pink and Green Faceted 
Glass Bead GA69 to it. The word bead says sweet 
and laugh.  The flower is one I made with pink chiffon.
I made the chiffon rose.  It is like the ones that
I used on the hat I made for the tea.
Thanks for stopping by.

Tea Table Hat Decoration

Hello friends!  Today I am sharing the hat
that I made out of chipboard.  I covered it
in papers from the Prima Tales of Me line
that I got from the Gone Artsy store.  Then
I painted the inside white.  I used the
gorgeous laces from the shop to cover
the paper. GA323 is the Floral Cathedral lace
that covers the sides and go over the edge.
I used the GA 317 Floral Dangle lace on the brim.
I used the GA76 white beaded trim on top of the
dangle lace.  
I used the IOD Mould (GA837d) to make a paper 
clay (GA836) element that I painted pink and white 
for the front and added leaves from GA44 lace.
I added big white beads in random areas around the
chiffon flower that I made.
 I used the White Ostrich feather GA68 on the back
behind 3 more handmade chiffon flowers.  Hanging
is the GA318 Long Floral Applique that I cut a piece
to shorten it and again added the leaf lace.
I absolutely loved making this hat and I sure hope
that you will try to make one too!  Please go to
the store to find your lovely laces and many other 
items.  Use DTSPL15 for 15% off.
I will post pictures from the tea next post!
Thanks for looking in!

Favors For A Tea Table

Every year I have hosted a Table for a Tea 
to raise money for either abused children
or Choices which is a program for pregnant
women.  This year I decided to make
these bottles for each lady at my table.
I covered the bottle in lace and then
added a lace flower to the front.  I used
lace from Gone Artsy in the flower 
 White Pearl beaded trim (GA76) and
   Tear Drop Lace (GA319) for the neck.  
I also used the Seed Bead Trim(GA57) that 
many of us on the Design Team love.  
I stamped this tag and added a thin
bead of glitter to add some bling to it.
I added the Organza Shimmery white
flower (GA863) at the bottom.
I used some liquid glue and covered the cork
top with beads, pearls and some bronze micro
beads.  Isn't this close up of that Seed Bead Trim
beautiful?  I love that stuff!
 I also used the Floral Dangle Lace on half of the
bottles.  I made a total of 10.  I hope they like them.

Altered a Prima Frame with paper clay and a Mould

I love this frame that I got from Deb's Gone Artsy
store.  It was part of my Design Team Package.
I decided on this picture of my daughters and so
I painted the frame with some white and pink paint.
The ornate pieces on the side and the bottom are
made with paper clay and a Prima mould.  I show
you how to make the moulds in the video below!
The paper is Prima's Salvage District paper and
the coordinating flowers.  I popped the picture of
my girls over a Sherri Baldy My Besties chipboard
cut out.  
Please watch my video to find out how I made the
moulds and what I used to alter the frame.  These
moulds are so much fun and you can add them to
so many things.  I hope that you like what I created!

Good Friday Easter Wreath

I needed a new wreath for my front door so
I created this one.  I took the Darice Coated
attached it to a natural wood wreath that I had.
I left tails of it on each side.  I then took 3
wooden crosses that I had and painted 2 of them
and covered 1 with paper that had the word "love"
on it.  I used the Real Feel Soft flowers GA379
around the crosses.  

I washed the wood wreath 
Texture Paste in Pink.  You can see a pink shimmer
but it is hard to see.  I added some flowers that
I had in my stash and some pink and green sprays.
I painted some corrugated letters to spell out Easter.
I used the Pink Texture paste to highlight the letters too.
I added some pink and green dyed seam binding to match
with my other Easter projects.

Vintage Egg

 I altered a 6 inch Easter Egg to go with my
wooden bunny that I have displayed on my
china hutch.  I found another vintage Easter
image and printed it out and glued it onto the egg.
to surround the image to look like a candied egg.
I love this trim!  
I also used some seam binding that I dyed
to go under the loopy lace.
I used the Cotton Single Chevron Style Trim GA178
on the back side of the egg because I like the vintage
look to this trim.  I love Rick Rack.  
There is glass glitter sprinkled onto
the image where there are pink flowers.
and this stuff is so beautiful.  It is a mixture of
micro beads, glass glitter and glass shards in
silver and pinks.  Thank you for looking in and

A No Sew Easter Tea Towel

I purchased a pre-made tea towel from Hobby Lobby
and added laces, seam binding and doilies from the
Gone Artsy Zibbet store to make it pretty.  
First I printed the picture onto muslin fabric that
I put through my color printer.  It is a regular HP 
inkjet printer.  You just iron it onto Freezer paper
and then put it through the printer.  Iron it again
to heat set the ink and you are set to go.
I layered the beautiful laces and added the doilies
for dimension.  I used a wooden button and cute
pink blingy buttons too.  I did this all without pulling
out my sewing machine.  I used a product called
Fabri-Fix.  It's a washable fabric glue.  I hand dyed
the seam binding that you can get from the 
Gone Artsy Zibbet store as well.
Go to Gone Artsy Zibbet to get your laces.

Matching Tags

On my Wednesday's post I mentioned that I would
share a few more items that I made for my swap 
partner Leticia.  If you want to see the gorgeous
shabby things she made me, you can find them here!  
I am still in awe of her generosity and talent!  
I made these tags that match the Pocket Hanger 
and the Love theme for the Gone Artsy Zibbet store.  
I used some of the same laces that I used on the 
Pocket Hanger.  The gorgeous blue lace is the
Ocean Blue Venice lace (GA60) The Tear Drop 
dangle lace is (GA319) under that is the Ivory 
Crochet trim (GA85). 
Leticia likes butterflies so I added the wooden
butterfly.  In the middle of the flowers is the
Magenta and Ivory Paper Peony flower (GA471)
 I layered the flowers and rubbed the white
flowers with the Iridescent Pink Texture Paste
(GA532) for a touch of shimmery pink.  The 
white frame I made from paper clay that I put 
into a mold.  I also rubbed the paste onto it.  I 
love the look.
I also added the shimmer to the Dress form
with the Pink Iridescent Paste.
It is a Shabby Chic Resin Mannequin Prima
Embellishment (GA528) and the set comes
with 2 other pieces.  The pink lace on the
bottom is the (GA244) that I had cut in half
for the Pocket Hanger.  Thank you again
for stopping by!  Deb has so many items
in her shop so I hope that you check out her
store here!
