Playday Projects

Yesterday was a ton of fun. My friend, Julie, and I drove two hours down to another friend's house for an art playday. There were a total of eight of us and what fun we had! We made six fun projects, had a yummy potluck lunch, ordered pizza for dinner and Julie and I got home after midnight! How's that for a long day!

I still have some work to do to finish up three of the projects, but here are the other three. The first one is a little spring hanging pocket made from only half a piece of 12x12" paper. Two folds, a little tape to hold it, an eyelet for a ribbon hanger and a few embellishments and we were done! This would be cute on a package or even for treats.

I love the vintage image on this one. This is embossed, flocked wallpaper attached to matboard and is approximately 5" by 10." We backed the image with a torn book page and added buttons, leaves, flower petals and some glittery Easter eggs. I might add some Stickles or bling to the dress or stipple the wallpaper background, but then again, I might not!

This is one of my favorite projects and was so, so simple. This image of Scotties was so nicely aged with waterspots or age spots on it. We mounted it on black cardstock and then added ruffles made with sewing pattern tissue cut in strips. Then it was backed again with black cardstock and black ribbon added. I'm thinking I might try to find some red and black tartan plaid ribbon instead - wouldn't that look adorable?!

As soon as I finish the others, I will post them. They, too, are so cute. Thank you to Jeri for hosting a very fun day with great projects, great friends and great food!
