Pocketful of Embellishments

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

A very early post this morning as I am off to Dorset for a couple of days.

I hope you all enjoyed your weekend.

Today I am sharing with you a Pocketful of Embellishments I made in a swap.
Mine made its way to Russia and Julia was a happy bunny.

I made a book using A3 pearlescent card and BoBunny Papers.
The front of the book I added metal corners and a flower I made with lace, crocheted doilies and a button.

I made two pockets for the embellishments and added 2 layers of lace and pearls across the top of each pocket.

I made 16 embellishments, 3 with crocheted pink flowers with leaves and pearl centres, another 3 with multicoloured wool white leaves and purple centres. I then painted 3 clothes pegs added cream feathers and brown flowers, I then had 3 mason jar die cuts which I added a layer of circle lace and ribbon roses I added pearls along the top.

To finish off I made 4 tags, and added lace and ribbon to the top.
Using Martha Stewart Paper Clay I made 3 cameras, 3 blossoms, 3 butterflies and 2 frames and the bird is a wooden charm which I embossed with Frantage.

Many thanks for your visit and continued support
