I am addicted to playing......



It's almost Christmas...yahoo!!!!
Hi there people, I hope that today finds you all well!
I am addicted to playing with my stuff. Really can not pass a day without at least doing something.
So, yesterday I challenged myself into using up things that were left overs from other projects. Now..the camera died..for sure this time..I am hoping...maybe this Christmas a new one??????
So, I had to put this sort of three dimensional piece into the scanner...what fun.
What you see here is: a cut up piece of a curtain, recycled lace, the angels are what I call a reversed paper cast, the background is an recycled silk blouse, cut up cotton blouse ( the flowers), a left over paper fabric heart, left over polymer clay cameo, the metal in the flowers are from a second hand store bought belt and a left over purple three dimensional flower that's mod podged....pfff..what a list. I might have to ad some hand embroidery but have not really decided what, so will wait till it comes to me.
I have to say that I was surprised that all of this could fit into this quiltie ( is that a word?).
The red thingy in the first picture, seems to be a piece of my sweater that I used to cover up the scanner with, since it would not close the whole way.
Then I found out that the recycled lace does not only have a mind of its own when you sew it on, it does not really like its picture taken either. Anyway, folks did my best to make it work, hope it works for you too..lol.
Since this will be my last post before Christmas.....
Merry Christmas to all of you!
Thanks for your support!
Wishing you the best Christmas ever.....
Andrea.
