My Day In The Studio .............

Today in New England it was pouring rain throughout the day with occasional thunder and lightening.  My favorite kind of weather to either snuggle up and rest or get creative.  I took the creative road today and decided to work on a few projects as promised. 
 
First is for a friend who is collecting raffle items for a fundraiser for a special friend.  I decided to alter a photo album using a fabric graphic from my friend Jonnie's store on ebay Tobasco14.  Check out her items they are breathtaking.  I altered the album using a fabric graphic of the pretty purple fairy along with shimmering fabric, fibers and flowers.  I tied, ripped and braided along with twisting fabrics together.  For an added touch I added pearl and strands of beads along the frame of the fairy. 
I hope whomever wins this beautiful album will cherish it as much as the photos they will keep inside for years to come.







and my friend Malinda is having a challenge on YouTube for Christmas in August!
Here is my entry for here Christmas Ornament Challenge!!!Made out of a children's puzzle tin.  I painted and added poly fill to resemble snow.  I cut out Victorian/Shabby Chic angel and added "hark the herald angel sing" sheet music.  I embellished the frame with fibers and lace along with pearls and twine.
The word JOY makes this ornament sing with sparkle of its own.
