This week's colors were sage and sepia. A beautiful combination with many possibilities. I've used it in paper and also in beading. A few years ago I made a bead crocheted rope necklace that I really love. I thought I'd share it since the colors are sepia and sage.
I stitched a peyote stitched slide to cover a magnetic clasp and also to be a focal for the necklace.
Since that wasn't made specifically for this challenge I also did some paper art. I had been wanting to use the Graphic45 collection "A Ladies Diary" since it came out. The colors in the papers worked for this week's challenge so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to make a small inspiration board, another thing I'd been wanting to do.
I cut small tags from an older Sizzix's die and attached things that a lady might see at her dressmaker's to help her make her choice for her next outfit. You can see her peeking out from the left edge of the board, surveying the offerings!! A few embellishments and some pictures of ladies in beautiful hats that might interest her and the board is ready to be put on display!
I've started embellishing the back of my dimensional projects just for fun. I've always loved adding some thing to areas that aren't readily seen by anyone but me. I use that area and the embellishments to sign and date the project. Here's the back of this one.
This was fun to make. And, a fun way to end this challenge. I want to thank Kristin for organizing this. I'm so looking forward to next year!
Thank you for visiting today. I hope you all have a wonderful day.
