Thank you very much for your kind comments on the loss of our sweet Carlotta. They are very much appreciated. We both are still devastated and I wouldn’t be able yet to write a blog post about some creations but I had this one prepared already and thought, I would post it. Today I’ll try to create something to get some distraction and I’ll start visiting you and catching up with you soon.
When I saw Gail’s beautiful Paris themed image for this month’s Mind Wide Open contest, I was in. Some days before I had bought a cardboard jewelry box with little drawers and the plan to alter that pink thing. You know that I love neutral colors and so I changed the challenge picture into neutral tones. Additionally I used the oil painting feature on Paint.net for a more washed-out look. After I had removed the pink paper, I covered the box with book pages of a vintage German-French dictionary and dry brushed them with white paint. I did the same with the inside and outside of the drawers except for the fronts where I adhered Gail’s image. Finally I added some lace and buttons.

I recently had a wonderful swap with Anneke over at lasize. Anneke sewed this gorgeous corset bag for me. Isn’t it the cutest thing?
Ann as well spoiled me with lots of pretty laces, two lavender bags and some charms. Thank you very much, dear Ann!
These are my gifts for Anneke. A tussie mussie and a jar filled with some lace and fabric flowers and a box with some buttons and charms. All three images I’ve used were provided by the lovely Graphics Fairy. Thank you, Karen!
