Hope everyone had a Happy Easter and got to visit with family and friends. May we all give thanks to our Lord Jesus Christ for the sacrafice he made for us. Giving his life for ours. We are all very precious and I am thankful for each one of us.May we keep these thoughts everyday!!
This is a lampshade that I had dressed in pink some time ago. I put it in the mall, but it just sat there. I was told to change the pink to cream or white. So I tea dyed some silk and made a new rose. Also dyed some of the lace. We will see if that helps.
I am going to the mall today and will take a few pics as I changed everything last week. Put in new things and took some out. Also added some new color.
I finished another new rose this morning, so thought I would post it. I will be putting them in the mall tomorrow. This one is silk with tulle and leaves made from crushed velvet. And little yellow shoes I found at an estate sale. They are so sweet. Someone has already claimed them site unseen. I'll email her to take a look.
Hope everyone has a great night. I'm going to work on the booth tomorrow and Antique Alley is this weekend, so I plan to go at least one day. Can't wait!!!!
Thought I would show you the roses I made yesterday. This one is a pale blue with antique lace leaves and antique lace trim. I added little pearls all over. These are corsages too.
This one has three twisted rolled roses with antique lace all around. I added bling beads to the front. I just bought some off white crushed velvet to make some more flowers. I'm really getting into flower making.Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a great weekend!!
I have been making a few flowers the past couple of days. This one today, it is made from pink crushed velvet. I put some antique lace in the back and the leaves are green crushed velvet with the embroidery to give them highlights. And it had to have a little bling with a rhinestone button. It is a pin that I will be selling in my booth.
This one I made a couple of nights ago. I took it to the mall to show a couple of friends and now I am holding it for a lady. It has part of an antique collar in the shape of a half circle on the back. And green organza ribbon leaves. I added a few stamens in the center of the rose and some beads hanging at the bottom. This one is crushed velvet too with a pin on the back. The blues look much lighter in person, with lots of highlights.
This is some more of that pink crushed velvet. I added some antique lace around the edges of the rose. I love this lace, it was on some material lace and was so old it was coming apart so I cut out the designs. They are beautiful. The leaves are a light golden organza ribbon. Also a pin on the back
The next two flowers are made out of paper pattern sheets. I have these two started and will finish them up in the morning. Need to wrap the stem with some floral wrap and maybe add some more little beads and for sure some glitter.
Thanks for stopping by and hope all of you have a wonderful week.
Thank you for stopping by to meet me and hear about My Tattered Elegance.
My name is Pat, I'm a self taught artist, junker and creative person. I paint on nearly any surface, make ribbon roses one petal at a time, do ribbon embroidery, form roses from the oven baked clay. I also do some sewing for my home.
My favorite pasttime is not going shopping at the mall, it is going shopping at a good yard sale, or fantastic estate sale or a big flea market. The thrill of finding that special something is better than chocolate (and I love chocolate). I'm even one of those ladies that stop and load my car with the cast offs on the side of the curb. Some of the curb trash becomes my best finds.
I'm at home here in Fort Worth, Texas and love it. I have a married daughter, Kim. She doesn't have any children only three cats. I also have a married son, Kent. He has two sons, Bryce and camron. Also one daughter, Payton. She is the one that comes and paints with me. And she loves to use my beads to make jewelry. Grand-daughters are so much fun.
