I received from Audania1 today! Check out this awesome wall hanging!

This is a picture of the whole thing

And this is a close up of the larger piece. It reads They have no idea what kind of fresh s**t I am about to raise

And this is a close up of the smaller piece. It reads The secret ingredient is resentment.

Thank you so much Audania1 I really love it! I would never have thought of using fabric. It looks so good on my wall!

Hoppy your shrine came yesterday Cheesy Hoppy went with my theme of Our Lady of Guadalupe. I love her!

The shrine is made out of papier-mache and Hoppy drew her image (which I am very impressed with as I can't draw for peanuts).
Here's a close up:

I love it, thank you again Hoppy!

Here are some photos for you Hoppy!
This is the picture I used as inspiration. It from a French fairytale called the The White Doe. I found the picture in an old children's book.

So what I did was make multiple copies of the image and then layer them on top of each other to make the picture 3D.

It's difficult to capture in a photo, but both fairies have their wings embellished with transparent plastic so they look even more mystical.

Here's another angle:

The shrine is small, just a little bigger than an Altoid's tin.

It came! It came! There were moments of doubt and after three long weeks my spool from Mariak came! She went with my theme of woodland people.

Here it is:

And a close up of the spool:

And a close up of the gnome!

Thank you so much Maria, I love it! Grin

I have some more photos of the spool I made. Thanks for all the interest. This spool was difficult to photograph but thankfully I've just made a light tent. Maria said that she and her daughter love fairies, so I decided to make a fairy villa.

Here's a shot of the front:

I have a dollhouse/minaiture store a block away from me. That's where I got the house. Then I added a super mini spool to the top of the bell tower to give the house a fairy feel. Covered the roofs with fancy ribbon fluff, and added some foliage and there you go.

Here's a picture of the super mini spool next to a regular sized spool:

Eek! I just love tiny replicas of inanitmate objects Cheesy

And here's a side pick. You can see the spool peeking out of the bell tower:

So happy you liked it mariak!

8  Altered Tin- a blessing for sewers in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Ramona Q on: May 26, 2014 11:52:56 AM
This past month I've really be into sewing. And when I was in my local miniature store (yup, there is a store just down the street from me that sells miniature and dollhouse supplies Wink) I found some of the cutest, and smallest sewing notions I have ever seen. They seemed perfect for using in an altered craft. So I bought them and made this:

I called it A Blessing for Sewer.

Here's a close up of the inside:

I took the label off a vintage spool from my stash. I can't remember where I got the picture of the woman. Probably from Alpha Stamps. I got the sewing machine, spools of thread, buttons, yarn stick (shown in next picture) and scissors from the miniature store. I used one of my many thimbles to set the sewing machine on.

All of the lace used is vintage. I wrote the blessing (and added the word 'be' between always and straight).

And outside:

I had some scrap booking paper that looked like a sewing pattern in my stash and used that for the outside of the tin.

Thanks for looking!

I love both sets of stitch markers. Can't wait to use them.
