My Favorite

I was truly drawn to the January 15th sketch at Get Creative along with all of the inspiration from the talented DT.  In keeping up with my goal to use up some of my stash, I came across some paper and embellishments from October Afternoon's Farmhouse collection that were a perfect match for an old photo of my mom with her doll.

I enjoy working with old pictures and especially this one of my mom which I have surrounded with some modeling paste using Christy Tomlinson's She Art Mask Vintage Doily and some stamping with  My Mind's Eye The Sweetest Thing stamps.


Here I've added a doily, a little gesso, stamping and used a numbers template from Crafters Workshop.

A little cluster using some embellishments from Purple Pumpkin, Webster's Pages,
Prima and October Afternoon.

And some beautiful buttons and my newest addiction, thread!

I'm working on a couple of projects that I will be sharing with you later on this week .
Until then . . .
Thanks for stopping by!
