I cracked the Eiffel Tower

 Hello Everyone,
 I thought that might get your attention! LOL

 I have been busy. In wasn't kidding. I did about 8 projects in a week which for me that is a lot! LOL Including write a new pattern but we will get to that later.

 Here is the first project. a tag for a dear friend. Inspired by the Prima designer Anna Debrowska! She is wonderful and I love her style. The two part tag is all I borrowed.
Used the pink paisley London Market papers and ephemera pack for the eiffel tag and teacup. The spoon is prima from the printery paper. I really love how this one turned out.
here is some detail.
For the crackle I used one step crackle by Delta. I love this stuff.
 Here is the low down on supplies
chip board- medium weight
Pink Paisley- London Market papers, ephemera tea cup, eiffel tower tag, spool tops 

Prima- clock, velvet trinkets( beads on bottom tag),lace- on top tag, and say it in pearls bling
Rose applique- gift from Juliana
Crafters workshop- stencil- mini chicken wire reversed
Wild orchid crafts- rose
Dusty Attics- through LSG- dress form
Melissa Frances-crystal stick pin, resin shabby butterfly
Recollections- corner pieces
Tim Holtz, spinners- on clock
 Michael's -chain
Epson- printer for bottom tag
Mircron-005 pen for "beautiful" written on paper from collection
Delta, ceramcoat paint-white( on corners) & one step crackle- on eiffel tag
Karla001-etsy- pearl trim on bottom tag
 Here is the second half of the tag. I really love how this all came together.

For the second part of this is a picture frame. I wish I had taken a before shot. It was so ugly. It was beat up, dirty and with broken hinges in a bright gold. I coated it with Gesso-2 coats, spray painted it with rustoleum paint and added prima tea time papers to it. I love how it turned out and it matches the dress form I made her last month perfectly.
so that is what I have been up to. I can't show you everything tonight. I have to hit the hay. It us 2 am and this gals get up and go has retired for the night.
many blessings,Pea
