Little Red

Good morning!

So I didn't get a chance to go shopping yesterday even though I left work early, I was too tired.  How about you?  Did you find any good sales?  Share!  (hahaha)

Today I thought I'd finally share this altered fan I sent to another swap partner in October.  I know she's already received it so it's now ok for me to share here.  I made something similar (HERE) but different for another swap buddy using two Sister Stamps, this time I decided to use one of my Gorjuss Girl images and included the fan.

The image is called Little Red.  After I colored her with my Copics, I "fun" (not fussy) cut her out.  Read all about "fun"(not fussy) cutting over on Karen's blog.  It looks like she and I are the only ones who like to do this. hahaha...  The patterned paper is from DCWV and I loved it because Little Red honestly looks like she's tip-toeing through a garden.  I added some white daisy ribbon around the edges, some gems, a mini calendar, a wooden butterfly, that huge fabric flower and more lace trim to cover up the handle.  I also added some leaf stick pins and a Prima zipper pull.  Here are a few close-ups...

My partner should be able to hang this up.  Right above the second leaf pin there is a slot that a hook could fit through.  Once the calendar is done she can remove it and add another mini calendar for next year or a picture.  It's pretty functional.  I definitely enjoyed putting this one together.  The key to this project was having the right patterned paper and enough patience to put it all together.  Once you get started everything sorta flows, it's getting started that's the hard part.  I'm happy my swap partner liked this.

Well that's all for now.  I hope you have an awesome day and if you can, go out and support your local small businesses.  I plan to do some of that myself.  Until next time, thank you for stopping by!
