I would like to add this one to Aprils Simply Neutrals #55

loved ones traveling it. 

Many of you know that I always add laces to my creations, and 
also here , a bit . 


I used stencil, stamps, papers , die cut and paper flowers
onto music paper , a little crackle , and my sewing machine . 



I hope you visit Wendy, as there is much more to see over there, both
from her, and from other artists , and maybe you would like to link

FREE - a collaged card !!


How are you all ? Since I was away last long weekend, I might have missed
some of your postings, but I hope to visit and see all your creations , soon.

For this card I used bits of a Tim Holz diecut , an old German train ticket ,


and the flower is also diecuts  mixed together.
The stamped heads I embossed with gold ,and
also wiped gold paint over the diecut fence .


There is dry embossed paper under the flower, and
I couldn`t resist to sew here and there on the mashine,
and leave hanging threads.


Tomorrow is already Friday again, so I wish you all dear friends,
a lovely weekend. 

Hugs and love

Le petit - bits of this and that !!

Paper scraps , Paper Artsy stencil , bird image ,
from old book : Bird Guide 1923-  
laces, acrylic paints and crackle medium .

I love how the heavy crackle paste have crumpled
the paper together , and have become fond of
the hanging threads , like many others !!


The wonderful find of the old book  : 
Bird Guide , Land Birds East of the Rockies, have been with
me for many years , and I have not made myself tear out pages,
until now. I desided to use it, and enjoy it , instead of
letting it stay on my shelf, and maybe have it thrown out later!! 


I`m adding this to , sweet Wen`s Simply Neutrals , and hope you
feel to go there and see her beautiful post , just click the link ! 


Have a lovely rest of your week, 
 and thank you
for your kind and loving comments, they mean so much to me, and
I treasure each and everyone , and you all dear friends.

Hugs and love

WINTER CARD


Hello dear friends, seems long ago I was here, so wanted to show
a card, I recently made. 
I was inspired of the sewing done by Diana https://velvetmothstudio.blogspot.com/ 
on this beautiful post , Thank you Diana !!
I used sprays , very diluted , and two stampsets from
That`s Crafty , : Lynne`s Affirmations set 6, and Set 7 ,
and also the script stamp from their Textures Collection Stamp Set 3.


No , I`m not back on the team, but Laura showed me much kindness,
so whenever I use from her products , I will mention the shop .
...........
I also used lovely sari ribbon , --and lace from sweet Jesse http://lace-age-girl.blogspot.com/


After stamping the tree , I sewed here and there on machine to show some 
branches more off !!  If you click the photo , you can see it better !!
Also sewed a little flower stems , and added two winter white flower heads.
The circle is a remnant from New Years eve and the fireworks !!


Thank you for your visit, it is always a joy to see you here .

WINTER WHITE


Even not much winter here, yet .... I have been inspired
to create this winter white piece , using an old doily .
Remnants of white lace, 

a woolen snowflake and a tiny embroidery.


At last a lovely image and beautiful , mother of pearl looking sequins


Even we have not had real winter, I dare not wish for snow, 
as then it could happen it suddenly was over us, with full power, lol.

Already soon weekend again, so dear friend- all the best for you for a
happy and lovely weekend.

Hugs and love

SOMETHING DIFFERENT

A notebook cover / book made for dear Martina on her birthday .
As I know she loves her garden, it is the theme for it.
And yes , not my normal style , but I wanted to create with
more colors for her , and this is what came out.


There are many different fabrics, and laces, too , and I 
used paint to give a golden look ,in some places - 



Different laces , borders, and a little bling .


The first spread is decked with Tim Holz tissue ,and I made
a pocket of the beautiful embroidered fabric , which was holding 
a tag-card for Martina. Maybe you can see that the cover is made so
you can take out the book, and put inside a new one , or you could use it
for loose papers .
The velvet ribbon is tying it together when closed !! 


Here with the tag inside pocket . 


Thank you so much for looking and commenting, it means a lot to me !!
January is soon ending , and I hope your months has been a good one. 
Wishes for a lovely new week to you all.
Hugs and love
Dorthe
