MY CHRISTMAS TREE ?? COLLAGE..BUTTONS/LINEN/LACE..



Hi ladies, well it was a magnificent day here in Melbourne today and cos I was feeling sooo much better...
Tennis was on MY agenda!! (first time in a week!)..

I am still feeling in some "MAD" crafting frenzy, so I made another lot of the air dry tags today...
BUT this time I stamped them with my gorgeous little set of Japanese Katakana symbols...(purchased from etsy)...

if they work out I shall show you the results..they look pretty good at the minute)....

I have never stamped something into these air dry tags before...!!

these are for my son to give to a japanese girl friend...(not girlfriend!!)..coming to stay with him for a few days next week...!!

I also did a "collage" of items occupying my interests at the minute..

from vintage crochet...doilies...buttons...butterflies!...my love of all things French...

So i bought an artists canvas..
tea stained it...

roughly drew the shape of a CHRISTMAS tree in a container...(although doesn't really look like it??)..

then just embellished with Lots of little bits & pieces suiting my mood at the moment..

staple gunned a big crochet edging from a tablecloth on either side to hang it..

MMM!!~~ what project tomorrow??

maybe CLEANING from ALL the MESS i have made over the last week!!~~

xx andrea
