Beautiful work!!
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Going Moony - Altered Spool on: June 26, 2014 11:53:23 AM
Hi there!  I participated in the Altered Spool swap.  My fabulous partner was Mistress Jennie!  She is a lover of theater, costumes, and moons.  With that all in mind, I crafted up this little spooly:



The spool itself is wooden and from my great grandma's collection.  I first painted the spool light blue and rubbed on some gold Rub 'N Buff to the edges.  I applied a ring of scrapbooking paper to the top, wrote "twinkle twinkle", and drilled in some holes for the banner to secure into.  I made the middle of the spool sparkly, wrapped some vintage lace (also from my great grandma's collection), tied some gold embroidery floss around it and added some tiny metallic sequin stars.



The moon is made from polymer clay that I painted after baking, and then drew on a face via tiny pen dots. I used more vintage lace for the collar and crown, which I felt gave the little moon a theatrical quality.  The lace for the crown I mod podged and shaped around a paintbrush to get the shape I wanted.  Afterwards I painted it with gold acrylic paint.



The banner has a background of scrapbooking paper with a white piece on top and then my own writing for the words.  I added a little bit of metallic watercolors over the top of the words.  Dangling from the banner on wire are tiny sequin stars.

Thanks for looking!

I received my awesome package from silentblair yesterday!  YAY YAY!!

First up, this amazing and whimsical moose hoopla!


The stitching is so beautiful and I am just in love with the design!


She knitted or crocheted (I'm no sure which) a beautiful pixe hat for Baby Bean!  Omg, I love love LOVE it!!!  I'm excited to take more pictures of her in it.  I did a mini photo shoot real quick yesterday. 


A fox mug!  I've been walking around the house saying "for fax sake!" all day now.  I'm feeling just a tad crazy!  The mug is so cute!


An enchanted hand-me-down!  She made this for her daughter when she was 2 and it no longer fits her, so she passed it on down to us.  I'm so glad she did, too, because it is so gorgeous!  Its big on Baby Bean currently, but I still managed to get some pictures of her in it.


And some more extras!  I beautiful ring that fits me perfectly, a little jar it came in, and a stick pencil!

Thank you so so much, silentblair!  I absolutely adore everything you made us!  <3

I'm done!  I'm done!  Since I'm ahead of the game, I'm contemplating extras.  We'll see if I can manage to get anything accomplished.  Running on small amounts of sleep this week due to Baby Bean's sleep regression, her need to stand up in her crib whenever she wakes up instead of settling herself and going back to sleep, and spending hours with her in the night trying to get her resettled into sleep.  So, she's cranky, I'm cranky, and today she goes in for her 9 month shots.  Today is gonna be a joy.
