Crazy Holiday Season

So, it has been a couple of weeks since I have blogged. We have gotten the house decorated for the upcoming festivities with family and friends, done most of our shopping, had a weekend with our nieces and nephews pair these things with my new (and WONDERFUL0 design team position, I have been one busy gal.

So now, I share with you, my dt project from two weeks ago, aptly named “Christmas In Paris”. In this design, I used many items from the Creating With Details online store. Fabulous lace trims, appliques, pearl and bling embellishments. This has been a favorite of mine.

Hope you enjoy! Please, stop by the Creative With Details store for your unique and beautiful items for your crafting needs.

“Christmas in Paris “paper mache top hat by Michelle

There is nothing that gears me up more for the holidays than the sights, the sounds and yes, even the smells of the this wonderful season. So in thinking about these things, I was inspired by the holidays of old. Walking along the snow covered streets and bridges, seeing the decorations of wreaths and of pine trees. The sound of carolers singing a Christmas tune, and the lights. And just imagine the wondrous beauty of the Eiffel Tower, amid a blanket of snow. This was inspiration for my project this week, the paper mache top hat.
I used a paper mache top hat just like the one found in the Creating With Details online store.  http://www.creatingwithdetailsstore.com/#!product/prd1/3264818351/paper-mache-top-hat-9x11%22
Covered with a beautiful 12x12 paper from my personal stash, torn and applied with Mod Podge Matte medium. I added beautiful lace and appliques, and embellishments of pearl, rhinestone, wood, and chipboard.
I hope this brings you to think of Christmas’s of long ago, and inspires you to create something beautiful!   Au Revoir Joyeux Noël!

Wings of the Soul Altered Canvas

Hello crafty friends. I am so thrilled to have been chosen to be a part of such an incredible design team, and getting to create with such wonderful products found in Mai Larsen’s Creating with Details store. This is my introductory design using some of those products.

I chose to create a mixed media/altered canvas.

The canvas is a 6x6, 2 inch deep stretched canvas.  Covered in 2 designs of coordinating paper (torn & distressed), using gesso, enhanced with metallic paint, texture spray, and chalk ink. The “angel” is a paper mache` mini dress form (cut in half to make for flat mounting to canvas) covered in script tissue paper.

Please be sure to stop by the Creating With Details store for your crafting needs. There you will find beautiful lace and lace applique's, pearl, rhinestone, acrylic and resin embellishments, fabric flowers, metal charms and so much more!
I used Metal filigrees, lace and lace applique's found in the Creating With Details store in this design.
Used From my personal stash:
Americana Metallic Paint in Espresso
Polymer clay shabby rose (from handmade mold)
