I have had a chance to make a few things recently. The first is these super adorable birthday tags for a swap at Paper Popsicles. I knew I wanted to include cupcakes on them when I signed up for the swap, so when my dear friend Daniela passed on something of hers that had these little cakes of joy in it, I instantly built my tag around them. I tried to incorporate two of my other current favorites, rosettes and tissue paper flowers and this is what I came up with:
My second creation of late is something some (or all) of you may have seen if you are on Facebook or Memory Makers with me, but I am still pretty proud of it. I had this vision of using these adorable 2x2" canvases as pendants. Little pieces of art hanging from your neck!!! This is my first one:
The canvas, flowers, and words are all from The Art Life. I cut the words from a sheet of GCD Studios paper that is in the Artsy Urban kit. I painted the canvas with a bronze paint from my all time favorite EcoGreen Crafts, covered it in Distress Rock Candy crackle paint, then Mod Podge-d my little girl and the words onto it. Some 7Gypsies ribbon around the edges, Stickles on the flowers and the dress, and a piece of vintage jewelry at the top completed it and I am thrilled!!! I already have some more ideas floating in my head.
