Checking In

November 8, 2008

This week has been a crazy roller coaster ride filled with election emotion, sleep deprivation (thanks to my two poms that haven't adjusted to the time change and are up by 4:30 am every morning), and finishing up my projects and packing for Silver Bella. So my blog, which I love to do so much, has been a little neglected. Here is an up close picture of artwork that I have been working on. I scanned and then re-sized to go into 1" x 1" charms for a Royal Charm Swap at Silver Bella:

I used vintage lace for the dress and then added pearls and buttons. Then for the back I created this...

The crowns are rub-ons that I had, thanks to Christine! I then took my water color pencil and lightly highlighted around it and used my waterbrush to blend in the color to make it really pop. On the larger crown I added small crystals and the small one I used Stickles to get that crystal feel.

I wanted to put a little of myself into this piece and how I have been feeling. Over a year ago I wished on a star, saved up my pretty pennies and my dream is coming true in only a few short days!!!! DREAMS DO COME TRUE!!!
