SIMPLY NEUTRALS NO. 8


Hello dear friends, it is that time of the week again !!



Today I want to show you, this piece from Sandra Evertsons series
of Relics and Artefacts , which I altered from plain whits resin,
to this silvery beauty.


I used silver leaf on top of the sacred heart, distressed it
a bit, and added rhinestones, and some plastic ones, too
The text I found on a tea-paper bag , and love it ,here.


This resin heart I recieved from my very dear friend Lynne https://lynnesbowsandbelles.wordpress.com/
together with others of Sandras beautiful pieces, and with 
this most beautiful card ,too.


It is so very lovely and adorable , and I`m so grateful for my gifts
my very lovely ,dear friend !!


I also want to show you just this one flower, from my
autumn garden ,the most stunning ever,
called Cafè au Lait !! 


And last another new christmas card, in black and white,
and silver.  I used a paper napkin on fabric transfer, with the
beautiful tree , the wonderful stamp from Artistic Outpost,
and bark stars and tree , the little tulle adds a bit of softness, I think.


I hope my post was not too long this time, and wishes you all
a wonderful week , hoping you will find many 
simple neutrals on your way !!

Hugs and love from Dorthe, 
AND WELCOME  to my new followers,
you are so very welcome !!

TODAY IT IS THE SEVENTH OF WEN`s WONDERFUL NEUTRALS PARTY !!

Yes it is tuesday again, and I`m happy to be back, after a wonderful visit 
from my daughter and grandkids, whom "stole" my time from
blogging last week, and also my internet has been down for 3 full days !


For newcomers ,here you have dear Wendy`s link to her beautiful blog !

My own neutrals this week is first, a part of my cover from the wonderful class 
of  SUZY`s , I`m doing right now, and which you can find here :



This is only a part of the cover, using an old cabinet card, and
an old buckle. The rose I made from muslin, and used lots of 
different laces, some older than others !


Here a better closeup.


And the other neutral creation today, is a christmas card,
in many layers ,using both paper and laces.


So fun to create the "frosted" leaves ,and using the real little
alder cones.

Thank you again, dear friend Wen, for making it possible to
be a part of your lovely party.
**********************************

I hope you will visit Wen, and all the other participating!

Hugs and Love, Dorthe
