As I'm back in sewing mode I thought I'd show these two pieces, I really have a fantastic collection of lace and such to use up, the first is a small wall hanging using lace both ancient and modern with some pearly embellishments, in the top left corner, from my late aunts wedding headdress.
The second picture is a postcard I made to swap with a friend, again using all ages of lace.

I originally bought this little book for the pages, to stamp on etc, but then as it was a good solid cover I decided to alter it and ,having removed the pages, i put a box base inside. I'm determined to use up that stash of embelishments , one down but plenty more to go!!

Those of us of a 'certain age' will remember the beautiful Princess Grace of Monaco as Grace Kelly - film star - here I've included her face in a canvas i created -Finnabair style (tworzysko.blogspot.com/), I have boxes of embelishments saved - why do we save these things rather than use them? - so I'm making canvases. This one is A4 size.

Tim Holtz does monthly tag tutorials, and I particularly liked his April 2013 tag so I set to to make it his way and was disappointed that it was dull, I obviously hadn't got the colours right so I decided to do it my way using distress inks instead of paints and it was much better and I was able to include it in my tag workshop a few weeks ago.
The lower tag is the one using the paints.
