In the wake of the front
~the norther is finally blowing in today! Believe me after the summer we have had we deserve it!! I have been a ball of scribbles all month it seems but here are some things to share!!!
I made a set of woodland cards using some old worn children's book illustrations and fabric scraps... I love this paper it totally reminds of good times spent in the printmaking studio. Here is my tutorial outlining exactly how I make these sets of cards. Although I have taken to using heat and bond to initially attach the fabric to the paper...then I stitch
along with card making (which I had not done in way too long) I delved into a little jewelry construction this month when I made this charm necklace for a sweet girl of mine. The feather I found at her wedding which was held amongst the peacocks.....loverly
...these super fantastic earrings were gifted to me in a bag of trinkets...they just needed hooks. I luuuurve them for their nice substantial weight and the way the little poky things brush my shoulders! I think the are maybe carved horn?!
And a few of my fall fashion designs
~love this new shoulder shirt!! same shirt with fave new micro mini skirts ...puuurrrrfect over thick tights and leggings
~LOve this longish wool skirt ......It is made from vintage fabric that is AMAzing. It has an elastic waist and would look be perfect over a vintage silk slip and a sheer blouse. THe Tshirt is my boat neck altered just a bit at the neck for a more casual less shoulder bearing look!
~Making lots of new knits right now ....i love these tunics layered over just about everything; so comfy and sassy!
THis is my fall wrap. The first one of these I made was in the winter last year. ....like a week before the endless summer started. So I am happy to be pulling this pattern out( although it is not a pattern really; tutorial to come). I gave one away on here last week in support of national spirit day
happy howlsweekend to you all!!!!!
