Text from my sister: "update your blog, I'm BORED!"
I got a good chuckle from that, but in my own defense, I was busy painting my living room...it had only taken me 6 weeks but IT'S DONE! There are 4 walls in my living room and I was dreading the 2 walls that are peaked! Grrrr! It looks beautiful though and I looooooove the color! I will snap a quick pick...once the furniture is moved back!
Anyhow, with my absence in blogging I also didn't have a darn thing to share...NOTHING new! Still several unfinished projects sitting on my desk, but I took a break from them to work on these little dolls:). I made these up as thank-you's for the photographers who did our family shoot back in November...yeah, tad late, but at least I remembered!China Dolls and Thank you are from Hero Arts, Kanji Phrases (green background) is a new set from CTMH, PTI-Petal Power and Trajan Alpha.It was hard to shoot the brushed gold cs as it blends in with the kraft cs, but I think you can see a little bit of difference here. Look how cute these sweet peas are??Close up on the bg...PTI-Petal Power and CTMH Kanji Phrases. I used Dew drops inks in soft earthy tones (Sahara Sand & Tea Leaves) so the bg is not so overwhelming. Finished off with a simple straight stitch line.
