Next month is
Artistic Affaire Moulin Rouge.
I have been busy getting ready and finishing up my swaps. I signed up for 3 and I'm done with two……..the third I’m hostessing.
Sooo until I have everyone's pieces that one won’t be done. I'm sure I will be rushing around at the last minute trying to get that one done, but at least the other 2 are complete!
One of the swaps I'm in is a pillow with a vintage suitcase pocket.
I did a Citrasolv transfer onto a linen fabric using a Graphics Fairy image. She also has a tutorial on her blog showing how to do the Citrasolv transfer.
I really like how it turned out and I hope my partner does too. Im excited to see what she made for me.
The next swap I signed up for is a 7 x 4 piece to go in a banner…….9 of them.
Since the theme is Moulin Rouge, I found this cool vintage can can girl image and dressed her up a bit.
Then I made these cute lace bags (that also have a Citrasolv transfer) to put them in.
I tea dyed the bags………..I can never leave things as they are.
I just love the tea dyed look…….so into the tea they went.
Here is picture showing before and after the they were tea dyed.
I just love the way you can instantly….well almost….make something look old by dipping it in tea.
This is the backside of my banner.
I tied on a Can Can Girl Moo card that I had made especially for this Moulin Rouge event.
I like to put them on my swaps ….I just love those little Moo cards and made a whole assortment of Moulin Rouge themed ones!!
All packaged up and ready to go.
I'm getting so excited……I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas.
A little more than a month to go……..now I need my Can Can Girl outfit.
