New for Etsy
Just a few things I'll be adding to Etsy tonight. First is a collage called "Perfect Chocolate Cake" using an old frame that I painted pink with accents of cream. I painted a background of brown with cream polka dots and decoupaged a copy of a vintage recipe card. I added a drawing I did in colored pencil of a chocolate cake on a pedistal and embellished with pink glass glitter. I added some vintage pink lace bias tape, pearls and vintage millinery flowers.
Next are two paperweights that I made out of old glass ashtrays (thoroughly clean with no odor). I turned them upside down filling in the cavity with a circle of cork that I had decoupaged a collage onto. Then I embellished the outside rim with vintage pink braid and a vintage millinery flower. The first one is called, "Fairy Good" and she carries a wand made of vintage silver glitter. The next one is "Fairy Pretty" and she has a pet bird with a silver glitter rope around it's neck. I will put these in my Etsy store tonight, so be sure to check them out! bye for now!
