GSC visiting Artist. Nov 3


Where is November going? is time just racing away or is it just me? I hope you have all had a fun week end or if your like me just happy to get a bit done so you can get to the crafting table ha ha. My mojo kinda of disappeared I couldn't think of anything to do for the GSCs project 'Stitching' Any way I was doing the ol' charity clear out and there was some things I just couldn't give away! Well a denim skirt, silk top and a crochet cardigan, well I can use the material in so many ways can't I? Don't worry I still had a sack of clothes and a bag of shoes/boots to give away. I really should stop eating my own baking so often  ;0) I have gone up a dress size and can NOT be bothered dieting (why worry) so great excuse to give away some stuff and buy new things too he he. So liberating.


I have sewn lots of yummy buttons on here some vintage some not so old, some scraps of material a denim pocket (see all coming in handy already). I used a canvass 5x5 I painted metallic gold then a wee bit of pink. Sorry you can't really see the gold detail on the photos (try clicking on them to enlarge)


I have had these butterfly's in my stash forever, and they are just perfect to go along with this don't you think? I won't insult your intelligence telling you how I made this I think it's pretty self explanatory. Why not pop round to Gingersnap Creations  and have a nosy at the other super designers and see what they have been up to. Love Dawn xx

Super 3d piece love all the beads draped just so and the buttons too :) Don't you fine the minute you throw something away you end up having just the right use for it a couple of weeks later.....best to hold on to stuff till you really sure you don't need them ! LOL

Hi Dawn :)

I came to leave a comment on your entry to this weeks Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge. The link brought me here but I can see no mention of the challenge anywhere in your post. Have I come to the wrong place? I expect I've done something wrong somewhere along the line! :)
