A Very Merry Christmas to All

Friday, January 20, 2012


I found out something about my altered glasses. I moved them yesterday and the day light actually  made them seem like they were lighted (or is that lit) anyway, what a bonus. When I make mine (and you know I will because I love them) I will display them where light will shine through them .

Yesterday, after company left I decided to strip the guest bed,clean their bathroom and ignore everything else so I could play.
My next project (swap) is a Mardi Gras mask. I've never made one before but I've seen enough of them to know what direction to move in. I had some beads that actually came from last years LA. Mardi Gras... I had some hand made purple paper, some glitter, sequins and organza flowers. I also had a blank plastic mask, not sure why I ever bought it but it sure came in handy.
Years ago I made a dummy, life sized and named her Geraldine...I use to move her around the house and scare people. Hey, it's what I do...I'm playful, what can I say. Now I wish Geraldine wasn't being repaired because I sure could have used her head to display the mask so the beads and ribbon would have fallen correctly, but you'll get the general idea.
Please note that no peacocks were hurt in the making of this mask. He gave them up willingly LOL The mask is glittery and you can't see that it's outlined in sequins. It really does sparkle  A LOT....
WE are doing a RR Altered Book swap in one of my groups. There are six members to my group and the idea is for each person to do art work in the book and pass it on. I have my cover all laid out but I need some things to make it happen...So I'm hoping over the week-end to  post my progress on that and some other ditty's..... Gosh I wish I could be this organized in ever aspect of my life LOL
Have a fabulous day!!!
