As I was logging in I realized that my last post was number 700!! Wow, I had no idea I was that close. Well its kind of timely because today is the big reveal for the LolliShops design Team Autumn Projects. We each got a packet of inspiration provided by Sadie and some of her Lolli Vendors and friends... The Retro Art Cafe, The Tin Tiara, SkyBlueBunny and Lollishops itself..
We were each sent a similar packet and asked to create something(s). I almost missed the deadline but scrambled and finished up my projects today. It felt like the nature was conspiring against me to keep from this, child illness, rough school days, computer issues.. but I did it!! I think the things I did were fun and cute. It was a good exercise is stretching myself as I have not been using much in the way of pastels lately.
First off I made this cute tag on a form that was provided. The cute doll stickers were fun and I embellished with vintage music, wallpaper and lace, along with lace and ribbon from the kit. Its topped off with some vintage buttons and embroidery and a sparkly flower in her hair. I will be sending this along with some other goodies, off to a lucky commenter in thanks for supporting me and my blogging ups and downs. Just leave a comment and a way to contact you and I will draw a name in a few days.
My other creations was inspired by the "Bits and Pieces" swap I did a while back that was hosted by Jenny of Everyday is a Holiday. I did a small "collage" on top of a box that can be used for trinkets and treasures. It has already been snapped up by my daughter for her room which is undergoing a make over. The various bits were from the kit, the pretty brooch, paper doll, lollipop, lace snippets, buttons and darling velvet flower along with the background paper. I had a lot of fun doing this "challenge" and look forward to next month.
Edited: I am adding a small covered box similar to that shown here ready for you to embellish with some goodies left over from the kit and some other things from my stash as well. Just leave a comment and I will draw a name to win it and the tag. Good luck!
