Mad Tea Party 2011

Welcome to my Mad Tea Party 2011

Hosted by Miss Vanessa at A Fancilful Twist

"If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?"


"We're all mad here."

"Curiouser and curiouser!"

"I'm late."

There was a table set out under a tree in front of the house, and the

March Hare and the hatter were having tea at it.

"It's always tea time."

I'm glad you had a chance to visit my Mad Tea Party.

Please visit A Fanciful Twist for more parties!

June - Artful Bag Challenge

Welcome to the June Artul Bag Challenge.

First of all I want to thank Anna at Frostedpetunias for putting all of this together, she has done an amazing job. Please check out other bags there too.
Check out her other work also!

I franticly searched all around my house for an object that I could transform into a bag.

I finally decided on a Taster's Choice coffee container. It was the right size and shape for what I wanted to do.

First I pealed off the the outer lable and then drilled holes in the sides. For my handle, which is a silk rope with an orange/red colored bead.

I then got out the black spray paint and sprayed the container.

I then got out my water color paints and started mixing colors for the poppy theme that I wanted to get across.

They are my favorite flowers.

I started cutting out the poppies that I had painted.

I started gluing everything in place.

For the large silk poppy I wired that on from the inside.

I threded the silk rope with the orange/red bead on and tied knots on the inside so it will be secure.

Here is my finished bag.

It has enought room inside for a small wallet, sunglasses, keys and a comb.
