Flower Girl in Mauve: ACFC #56

vintage photograph

Flower Girl

Over at Art Creations Friday this lovely vintage photograph is offered this week as the prompt for Challenge #56. I retouched the colors a bit to match the ribbon and other components that I used for the frame. Thanks for another lovely image to work with!

Enjoy what you do, every day! Christen

French Lady: Art Creations Friday

Feminine French Lady

Feminine French Lady

Over at Art Creations Friday they had an open theme, or you could use the image or background of a challenge you missed. My lady is from Challenge 43.

I re- colored the image to work with the materials for the frame. I first dyed Tymtex (which is a stiff interfacing used in baseball hats), then cut it and stitched it into a frame. The frame is embellished with hand embroidery, fabric vine and novelty yarn, velvet milliner’s leaves, and ribbon worked roses and leaves. I also added in vintage celluloid leaves, roses and buttons and a piece of a wooden fence.

So glad that I could include this in the challenge! Thank you for all of the work that you put into this site!

The Music Room: Art Creations Friday

The Music Room

The Music Room

This is my entry for Art Creations Friday, Challenge #42.

Hilda pondered as she was gliding through the music room whether or not to tell Grammy that the moths had gotten rather large in here. La, la, la, la, la, la…..perhaps another time….

All of the butterflies and moths are Dover images except for the largest butterfly which was from the Vintage Moth.

Enjoy- Christen
