This weekend I actually had time to play! Oh, I love to play! I made this fun ATC for the monthly lottery over at Paperwhimsy. The theme is "Castles", I luckily had an old stamp of a fantasy castle, which I stamped over some H20 shimmering watercolors. The images are from Paperwhimsy. I do enjoy dreaming about beautiful homes, just like this whimsy girl.

I love to make all kinds of jewelry. This is what I call a "vintage collage necklace". I used some white flowers from my friend Marlynn, and created a side focal piece, and then used a vintage rhinestone and cameo for the main focal piece, backing it with an old scrap of lace. This is a mix of vintage beads, vintage rhinestones, vintage lace, a vintage clasp (not shown) and some natural stone beads I fell in love with.


The pearl necklace at the neck is from an antique store, and the crystal necklace is from a thrift store.
I left them on the mannequin just for show, I don't think I would wear these all together! Now I need just the right top to wear my necklace with.

I am all excited about making my first cloth doll. I bought Cloth Doll Artistry by Barbra Willis at Joann's Fabrics last week and I have been mesmerized by it ever since. I hope tomorrow to get to give it a go. I am looking forward to collecting fabrics for the outfits.
Thank you again, for stopping by.
Hugs,
Terri

Hi Terri,

I love your paperwhimsy creation and love the necklaces on your dress form. I think we all love to adorn them. I used to wear a lot of jewelry but now I prefer to let something else in my studio wear it. :0)

I just got my email notification of the paperwhimsy sale! Did you get yours?

Have fun with the cloth dolls...I really want to makes some too.

Have a wonderful day,
Stephanie ♥
