Cant Help myself


I have to learn to look away now when I see glass domes, I think I have reached my limit, just maybe.
What can I say about my dome, that's its made from the Enchanted Tea Party and Vintage Rose.
Every thing is made from scratch the base from very thick card board. my hat took me one afternoon to get the size right when I created it lots of card stock went in the bin that day.
my drink me bottle was a very old bar fridge bottle from my husbands collection the label had fallen off so was perfect









The clock embellishments I had collected over the years and were perfect for this display
I will admit making my cups I found a little difficult, because I had trouble with keeping them round 






But over all I am pleased with my little dome creation it is a perfect representation of what Enchanted Tea Party is all about 
If you would like to know where to find my collections click the link or the pictures on my side bar and that will take you to where you want to go

Inspiration

Thought today I would share some photos from the creative Inspiration Magazine on my blog. If you are looking for the magazine hop on over to Couture Creations blog or at your local craft shop  if they don't have them available, ask them to order them in.








my very old top hat made here in Adelaide which I believe was made for a Lady because of its size I fixed the inside because it had a large dent in it  I just love it.

A day out for Easter

A few years ago for Easter at our Botanical Gardens, which is probably the last time we have been there, I think we are well over due for visit.
Funny thing thou about that day it coincides with how old my freezer is as that particular day we had to race out and purchase another freezer before all my frozen goods defrosted, don't remember the year but we were blessed with a beautiful warm Autumn Day. 
This is a layout I had so much fun putting together and am a little fond of, because of all its elements


I have played with Anna Griffin Texture Paste as well as using the Prima mold again very plain which I love on its own I have used dies from different collections like Sea Breeze  and mixed it with Imaginarium Chipboard. 




 I have punched out a little image with a circle punch and placed under a piece of flat glass embellishment





Unfortunately it is hard to take photos of my acetate layouts this is just a quick example of one of my layouts sitting over each other, you can see how they match and give dimension.

A Day Out

A long time between posts, I will make up for it though.
I have been creating in the last couple of months experimenting with the latest thing foils and mixing and matching with different collections 
Today I will share a couple of layouts created with  Enchanted Tea Party these photos were taken a few years ago on a family get together for Easter. Because of the colour of the photos I found them hard to work with until now.






hopefully my cousins will be able to tell me what year this was and how many years have I been waiting to match these photos, they are perfect for Enchanted Tea Party





Have added a bit of foils using one of the Sea Breeze dies


 Here we have added a Prima mold I purchased from Meg's Garden I have painted it then rubbed a bit of gold rub over the top love these mold a lot 


stay tuned have a lot more to up load in days to come

Large Dome

hello again 
just dropping on by to show you my large 
Domes I have made  the first one with my Enchanted Tea Party collection.
Yes there is a lot of fussy cutting, I sit on the couch at night time and cut I actually find it relaxing especially when too tied for anything else. 
I believe I could still add to my project I have some trinkets waiting but just need the rings to hook them on to the trees
and maybe I could add a few more flowers













I felt The Enchanted Tea Party lent itself to such a project and was completely enjoyable to create.
 Yesterday I completely forgotten about this little beauty it was hidden behind something
so I have just shared it in this way
click  and it will take you to a post little dome 
now for my first large dome all the chipboard is Imaginarium as this whole base was specially designed for the dome measurements












well I believe this is enough domes for me for a while maybe,  I actually have one without anything in it so, I might have to make something a bit later on with another collection
until then
thank for visiting
