Okay. Enough soap box.
Here is my desk. What happened to the tidiness? Yeah, well that was two weeks ago. Life happens.
Fallout from recent projects. A Marie Antoinette ACT (see close ups below)
Vintage blue bead trim I used on the card.
I bought the blue bead trim at the same time that I bought these. The brown trim has rotted thread and is very fragile, so I can only use the beads (those are the ones I used to trim the Gingersnap ATC from an earlier post).
So, here is my first Marie Antoinette ATC. I got her image from Magic Moonlight (see button on my sidebar) and the jewelry images are from Kristin at Retro Cafe Art (see her button on my sidebar).
I dyed the paper and satin flowers with glimmer mists then "gilded" them in gold with Smooch paint. I dyed the stick pins with slate alcohol ink and touched them with the gold Smooch.
The background began with mica watercolors (USArtQuest) then stamped and heat embossed in gold.
Trimmed in the vintage blue beaded trim, paper leaves punched from MS border punch and some "found" pearl bead sprays. It all began with her dress.
For those of you that visited me the last time (two weeks ago!!!) This is what became of the girl in pink...
I call her "The Flower Girl" Her image is from Kristin at Retro Cafe Art.
Again I added magnet strips to the back. Doesn't she just have the sweetest face?!?!
Toddle over to Julia's site and find a lot more inspiration from fabulous women and their work desks here:
