Good Morning Ladies,
I cannot tell how much I enjoyed using the beautiful laces and trtims that I got in my DT kit from Amanda Charlesworth at Scrimpy's Lace Closet, which is a Facebook Shop, Amanda has weekly sales events, usually on as Wednesday evening, if you are interested in any of the beautiful things you have seen me use from Amanda's shop just let me know and I can point you in the right direction, or look Amanda up on fb.
My first project was the cute little suitcase that I received in my DT kit, I painted the whole thing with Gesso, I then added some of my Magnolia Lane paper to the top of the case, as I just loved the beautiful Lady, I made a frame for the face with Creative expressions Melbourne die, I used Cosmic Shimmer Enchanted Gold Gilding Wax to the frame, I then arranged some Wild Orchid Crafts around the frame, also added a tiny rose and some of Scrimpy's Iridescent Bead String to the girls hair. I added a Butterfly taken from the Butterfly trim in my DT kit and added Somme pink pearls along its body, I used a piece of trim and some pink pearl string around the edge of the case to draw your eye into the focal element.
The side of the suitcase was covered with 3 different laces from my kit and my own purchases too, they look so pretty when all layered together. I ran some pink pearl trim around the bottom to finish the edge off properly.
So what do you think??
Now onto my second project, this time I used an MDF Glue Gun Stand from Fernli Designs, the quality of all of their MDF products is amazing, everything goes together so easily. I covered the whole thing with a pretty blue and pink paper from my stash, I then cut a small square of plastic that was inside some pearl packaging, I cut it to fit the area beneath the glue gun nozzle, that way any dribbles of glue will fall onto there and cn easily be removed. I took some of my Scrimpy's laces and ran one around the bottom edge of the project, I then ran some flatback pink pearl string around to neaten and finish off, I added some tassel lace around the top of the holder and then added some pink seam binding ribbon and added some some double row pearl trim to added a pretty touch, I did exactly the same to the part that holds the glue gun too!
I think it looks quite pretty!
Thank you Amanda for asking me to be part of your DT, I loved the kit and making new things, I can't wait for the next one !!
Have a lovely day ladies,
Love and hugs
