My paper art challenge!!!!


So I decided to join The Artful Bag Challenge over at Anna's http://www.frostedpetunias.blogspot.com/ . It is a year long challenge and each month we will be doing something different. Anna is so sweet and very helpful! This is part of my "I CAN" challenge for myself!! At first I was alittle hesitate but realized it is exactly what I love and like to do!! I won a giveaway from Anna a few days ago. I won a copy of "Where Women Create" and she made me a very cool heart shaped Valentine. This little paper purse looks bigger than it is. It is only 2 1/2 inches high by 5 1/2 inches wide. I made it to match my livingroom. I pinned it to one of my mannequins that has a vintage fur collar on it. And my other one has my collection of fur jewelry and gold dog jewelry pins on it.


I love the way this looks on my coat so I think I'll keep it there for awhile. I can't wait til next months challenge, it's gonna be so much fun! And I already know what I'm gonna do!! I am also doing another new adventure, one I've been praying about for awhile and will be posting on that as it happens!! And of course I am still geting my new studio (I like that word!) organized and ready! It's a work in progress still, but I'm taking one day at a time!! Take care, XO Love, Fran.

How cute is that?!! You did a great job. My Grandma always wore a coat with a fur collar.

Well you certainly CAN Fran! Your purse is fabulous. I love the leopard print and the handle is brilliant. It looks perfect on that coat which is just as fab! So glad you're playing along. Can't wait to see what you do next month :)

Fran,Thanks for visiting me,and your sweet comments to my post.Its very hard for me to pick a teacup I'm willing to put glue on .Did you guess that?I'm still going to do it though.It's going to stay on that list of arts and crafts I want to try.Your coat is gorgeous, perfect way to display it.Are those cloth or paper purses for the challenge?I'm guessing Cloth.That might be far beyond my skill level.I should go along with you and say ,what is it? Yes I Can!

Fran,By the way,I may love teapots and teacups and all the tea parties ect..but my everyday love of COFFEE-OH YUM YUM YUM comes out of good ol mugs.I have tried many gorgeous china mugs but I always go back to my fav.Campbell Kids red mugs.Now I'm drinking 1/2 and 1/2 due to b/p.
