White hand made lampshade with double fringe.

Just working with this photo inspires me to get busy and make another one. Notice it has a double fringe on it and is fully lined which makes it twice the work. Eye candy and actually useful when done.

Kiss me Mother, kiss your darling music pedestal.

This was from a cover of a sheet music magazine approximately 100 years old. Preserved it by placing on a round sheet of plywood before attaching it to a "spindle" base . This took hours and hours but will make an unusual gift for someone. CLICK ON PHOTO FOR DETAILS.
If you would like the free background please go to my RUSTIC PIXEL BACKGROUNDS

Oh, these are so pleasurable to make and the ideas are endless.

Small victorian band box made with vintage sheet music.

This box was such a treasure to make. Started with a large sheet of illustration board from Staples and measured out the sized for lid, sides and bottom. Cover each with a patchwork of vintage sheet music. On the top I stamped the bird. The "ribbon" was made from the tape transfer technique and has the see thru look. Used some old jewelry given to me for the cluster holding it all in place. It was tons of work. I did three in 3 different sizes. Will share the other at a later posting. Thanks for reading.

Decoupage tissue mini cards.

These were so much fun to do. Once card was cut I glued tissue designs with Golden's Matte Medium and while still damp embossed it with various embossing folders with my cuttlebug.
Decoupage Tissue "Garden" series by DMD. If I recall correct it came from 7 Gypsies.
Before cutting the cards I sprayed them randomly with walnut inks etc. Thanks for reading!
