Extra Styles


My crafting resolutions:
1. To create more than 50% of my projects with either recycled materials or scrap left over materials to cut waste and excessive earth fillers. Currently at about 45%)
2. Teach paper craft classes.
3. Create Dies for Spellbinders(done)
4. Learn everyday what it takes to be patient, understanding, tolerant and giving.
made it to CHA, and work for embellishment company I love, demo classes all in 2012-13

Whew!  Now that all the business is out of the way, I want to share the ingredients of this Marie Antoinette want to be!   My reaction to the flourish stickers in the store just made me crave to color up this image with slick black hair and that Victorian Pink with rich Ivory tones.  I added a little touch with the Applique (which makes the micro beads stickier than I like) and love that the little ornament shaped sentiments weren't over powering the image or the delicate look of the over all ornament.  I simply LOVE these Sentiments!  May be using them in ALL of my projects till Christmas lol!
