It's A Very Cherry World titled "Initially Yours Swap"...Basically, Sue assigned you a partner & you created a gift using the first initial of their name. My swap partner was Trisha (initial T) over at the Glass Slippers & All Sorts of Stuff blog. I am anxiously awaiting my "T for Tiffany" creation by Trisha!
|The Queen created a mixed media, altered art collage using a Paris~French theme|
|Dangling below was the script "T" decoupaged on a silver plate coaster adorned with vintage tatted lace & buttons|
|A closeup showing vintage ribbon, buttons, crocheted lace & a bit of bling!|
|The English translation is "A Lady's Glass Slipper:..I adorned the bottom with old buttons, rose hanky, turquoise fringe cut from an old bedspread, more crocheted pieces & torn paper from a French book|
|In the top left corner, I used an enamel earring, silk ribbon & an old postcard graphic of the Eiffel Tower.|
|I loved this image of the French lady with the dog. Her coat is fab!|
|"If Only I Was In Paris...."|
|Trisha emailed me a list of the things that she loved...some were roses, turquoise/aqua, pink, white, French, Paris, vintage lace....I hope that she enjoys here piece of art as much as I enjoyed making it for her!|
If you have never participated in a swap, it is a lot of fun! The hostess always gives you ample time to create whatever the swap theme is...Several swaps that the Cranky Queen is participating in are "an altered spoon swap" over at Tee's blog The Altered Paper and "a door hanger swap" over at Jeanie's blog All My Art. So, "live a little", "have some fun", "meet a new blog friend" & "join a swap!"
STAY CALM & ENTER A SWAP!
|Saw this little French poodle painting at a B'ham restaurant...unfortunately, the manager did not know my "royal status" & would not sell it to the Cranky Queen! Some people just have no respect for royalty~LOL|
