A bit of the 50’s

She only took me 2 days , it’s hard to believe I must be getting better at this craft ,or I am skipping details. anyways I love her, ………………so shes done… I love tearing the paper’s and seeing things appear , at first they look kind of undone and not right . But the good thing about this  art is if you don’t like the results you can always tear up more paper and cover up the mistakes….. oh wait there are no mistakes only happy findings………

unbranded dies from Amazon Prime {China}

I only bought these three dies to start with but boy do I wish I bought more they are just right to exchange the hair and clothes . love mixing and matching items.   started a bunch of cards need to color in some checks and add freckles and basic shading to them but they are to cute and I had to share them.

 

The outside of the coffee card ….                          the inside has a pocket for a coffee GIFT                                                                                           CARD.

save those Clementines creates?…

OKAY so cool to turn into caddys .  used homemade glue.. {look in search my blog} and glue paper towels to create helps keep it sturdy and helps cover up the staples they use. do as many layers as you like. painted mine black to go with the napkin collage design . make sure you peel the 2 layers of paper off the napkins first.
