It's Tuesday again, so today is City Crafter day!
Ros is hosting this week. She has a colour challenge for us.
I so much wanted to do some needlework, so I made a little giftbag.
With some of the yummie laces Ros gave me.
And some other laces, ribbon and seambinding I had in my stash.
Beads in a colour combo I love.
Reminds me of patina or rust,
of which I have some gorgeous photos (by others)
on my pinterest board "photography inspiration".
I got three huge bags full with fabrics
- both leftovers and new -
from a sweet grandma of very good friends of mine.
There was also a dress which she once started but never finished.
The grey fabric comes from this dress.
Did you know I loooove lace? Probably not :)
There's also a little pocket on the back of the bag,
but I haven't made a photo of it.
This sweet little bag with goodies goes to a friend of mine,
which she doesn't know yet. Oh how I love sharing surprises!
Elma is our guest designer this week. We love to have you with us Elma!
A while ago I did a swap with Sanne and made her bookmarks.
(You can find the bookmarks she made in my previous blog post.)
One of my bookmarks I already showed (the lace and fabric shabby French one).
I thought I share the other ones with you today as well,
because they kind of fit in the colour challenge.
Well, two of them.
Painted and stamped background on thin cardboard.
Pieces of lace fabric surrounding a vintage child photo.
You can find the photo on my pinterest board
"Cabinet cards and vintage photos".
Sanne is a music lover, so I gave it some musical extras.
And two digitally made bookmarks.
If you'd like you can print them for yourself too.
Oh how much I love the look and colour of this dress...
The second one doesn't fit in the colour theme, but hey.
Hope you're having a sweet day filled with love.
And time for your arts and crafts.
Which sometimes is a big challenge to fit in, isn't it?
