The prettiest of pretties arrived from Sandra, one of my round robin partners.
Our books are now with Stampington, so when we get them back, it will be like discovering them all over again. I'm curious to see which pages will be used in which magazines. They are being divided up as individual creations, not shown as full books.
Mine say, "I love my job and am too excited to stop and put on gloves when I decide to dye something"
Today's batch of dyed goods is full of cheesecloth, ribbons, and lace. I dipped it in what I thought was leftover, cold coffee, not knowing that my sister, Sandy, had made a fresh pot until I stuck my hands in it.
The coffee was a good start, but I wanted more depth to the color, so I spritzed it with Tim Holtz Esspresso stain, then more spritzing with Glimmer Mist in pale pink, metallic gold and silver for some shimmer.
I'm making this up for the Romantic Gothic Ghost workshop at my home in October. So, I wanted it spooky, but still prettty, hence the spritzes of sparkles.
I've also been reworking the Raven for my class. I decided to draw some different patterns, and I think I like this one best. Although, now that the bird's head is a little bigger, the crown looks too small...
Speaking of crowns, this vintage barrette, is now in the Boutique.
