Velvet lace and paper.

Hello friends, 
I `m here with another mix of my favorite ,-papers and fabrics.
I found the beautiful velvet on a fleamarket, and knew I could use it .
Also here I started with one of the embroidery cartstock with premade
holes to sew in . 
The beautiful head stamp, is a gift from my dearest friend, Lynne,
and the dried flower from another very dear friend, Sharon.

The paper doily is also a gift ,and also from a dear friend,
Sherry ,- thank you to all 3 of you, for your constant support
and beautiful friendships . 

As you know I love Lynne`s Affirmations, so had to use one here, too. 

I hope your weekend was a good one, and that you are ready for the new week
to come . 

Hugs and love

My first post for long, showing my old style !!

A little new creation, with some favorite materials, old torn fabric ,
a dried leaf, and a lovely image.

I found the tag in a local shop, made ready for embroidery, and
used it for my fantasy flowers.
It was first sprayed with diluted brown paint.

The lovely face was adhered together with the pearls
and on top a corrugated cardboard crackled first , I added
the leaf and word, from one of Lynne`s stampsets.

Here a close up , for you. 
I hope you like my collaged card -

Tomorrow evening my dear grand kids will arrive here,
with their father, for a 4 days vacation, so once more I will
be away from blogs , and also fb. But will try to visit
now and then. 

A happy weekend to you all, thank you for visiting me,
it means a lot .

Hugs and love

I`m here with the first autumn theme for That`s Crafty Challenge : Forever Autumn

The choice was to start using one of  the MDF panels onto which
I painted white and while wet added a little black, to achieve this grey tone.
When dry  I used the beautiful swallow stencil using Black gesso dapping with
a hard brush.

I left to dry, and meanwhile onto a find from my garden, a dry leaf, smeared 
a little of the gorgeous Antique Gold. A greyboard leaf was stamped with 
one of Melina`s doodled leaves , Lime Lustre was painted in the doodled frame,
and Antique Gold and Metallic  Rose Gold painted onto the leaf.Also a tiny berry
branch was painted white on the berries ,and a dot of gold, too.

The swallow now dry was given details with white and gold smeared together,
and a white dot for the eye. On two edges I used the Stitch stencil, with a blackFine liner .
The Affirmation was partly stamped directly on the left side panel , and onto two pieces of
scrap paper from my table .

Also a piece of rusted fabric , ( a lovely gift from Lynne ) was found on the tabel,
and adhered to panel. On top the leaves and the branch- and lastly the stamped paper scraps.

I hope you are not tired from reading , lol. 

Hugs and love
