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 .

Hugs and love

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

MIXED MEDIA COLLAGE !


This started with a under-paper  -used to spare my table for paint
and texture paste  -, to which I adhered music paper,
Danish poems papers and after sprayed with same tone as
already on the under-paper - 


The beautiful Catherine Moore stamp was fussy cut and adhered
on top , and teabag paper added underneath her . The sweet ,wonderful
apple stamp, which I received from my lovely friend Donna, thank you my sweetest friend-- , was also stamped and then fussy cut , and Lynne`s beautiful flower was stamped directly onto the 
paper . 


The woman , apple ,and flower ,all was treated with lovely 
Beeswax, -a gift from my dear friend Lynne , -I gave it several
layers, (sorry you cant see it ) and it stands so beautiful and
shiny after having been buffed a bit with a soft cloth .Thank you my dear Lynne.
Also she got a little extra hair from black threads :-) 


You can see the great effect from the spraying ! I also added 
both lace and rough rope band ,  sewn to the collage, on sewing machine ,
leaving long ends of black thread to hang ,--the lovely postmark and stamped a
line from Lynne`s Affirmations , onto corrugated cardboard , were adhered. 


The paper was adhered to craft card , and a knitting yarn
was added to hang the collage.

So we already have Friday again, and here it is still
very mild, -no snow, and only rain , but I saw the sun today,
and that was wonderful !!

Hugs and love to you all,
and a happy weekend
