DressedUpDuo

Some of the cheapest surfaces to paint on that aren’t free are found at the dollar stores. They most always have 6×6” ceramic tile trivets.  Simple paint over them with gesso or collage your own backgrounds on. I opted for black napkins crumpled and adhered over the tiles after painting them black. I did a wash of Metallic pearl white and a smearing of gold glaze before starting anything. As I’m currently working on art for my bedroom gallery wall I thought dress up would be fun.

I found some templates online and …

Started creating… I’ve a ways to go with this one yet.. but I’ve at least chosen my dress for the ball.

And my bustier’ for the bedroom.  I’m working on giving this mirror more bling and adding more interest to the background.. along with adding yumminess to the wearable’s.

Check back soon to see the progress.

What are you wearing to the ball?

FlyFree2

Flying Free is what this months campaign is all about. Free from Breast Cancer! Today’s entry for Day 13 in my Breast Cancer Awareness Month Series is done in gorgeous fall colors. Gold and plums with touches of pearls and glitter. Done on vintage text style paper with die cut embellishments.

Today was a fun day. We hit the streets earlier today to get some shopping in. I finally found some make up brushes that I love and also got a steal of a deal on a fantastic light up make up mirror at Coscto. 1x on one side and 8x … OMG my pours! — on the other side. It was only around $15 so I’m really happy with the deal. These are both things I’ve really been wanting a lot lately so I was super happy that the God was shining down on me today. Thanks Papa!

Tomorrow I’ll post my Pumpkin Spice Creamer recipe so drop by for a delish cup of joe and some fall Nom Nom!
