But more on that later..

Dainty Doily Dolly

Sorry for not being an active blogger this week, those pesky blue are well and truly singing but i'm getting back on form slowly, In the meantime I thought i'd share a pic of my finished doily mannequin.
Some of you may have seen it but some may not have so for you people.. here it is.
It started as a plastic mannequin you would use for a barbie clothes shop, but with some hot glue and some doilies, lace, flowers & pearls I transformed it into a victorian beauty.
I was totally inspired by a similar project made by Shilpa on utube.

Just a Quickie!

Today I wanted to share one of the many little clocks I am addicted to making.
I've used some of the Prima sunrise sunset papers.
I also used some Prima flowers and Tim Holtz chit chat stickers.
I think these are just such a cute alternative to normal style cards.
I've not done much crafting this past week, the blues have got me again but i'm sure i'll bounce back soon.
I'll be back tomorrow over on the Creative Studio's Blog with a DT piece.

An Upcycle Challenge!

One of my lovely twitter friends Lin set an upcycling challenge a couple of weeks ago for a few of the gals, I was lucky enough to get in on the action last minute.
She sent out a pack of goodies to each of us with instructions to play with 2 conditions, We had to work in monochrome with whatever chosen colour we picked, and we had to use up everything we received.

This is the pile of goodies I received:

And these are the projects I created:
I jazzed up the mini folder with grunge paste, stuck on the mesh, and several of the embellishments from the kit and let it all dry. I then covered the whole thing in shades of brown fresco's. Did some brown stamping with paper artsy stamps and a smidge of treasure gold {the brown shade onyxite} and it is now a nifty ATC holder {I put playing cards in the spaces for show}
I took the cigar tin and covered it with the old book page, I lined the inside with the doilies and painted all the chipboard bits with antique linen distress paint, I also used the paint to soften the cover.
Then I assembeled it all together adding a couple of pics I printed off on the comp and some time holtz chit chat stickers along with a couple of other flowers and pearls from my stash.

After the 2 projects all I had left was a bottle top and some tiny scraps so I turned them into a little brooch.
I'd like to thank Lin for this fab challenge, Do hop on over to Lin's Blog for links to all the girls upcycled pieces.
