These flowers were tatted some years ago and already mounted on acid-free cards then. I mount them onto another ATC-sized backing now and add ribbon trims. My girl says they look old-fashioned. Are they ?
I was searching for something in my stash last weekend and found some beads and stones here and there, so I gathered them and put all together. Looking at all of them, I just couldn't resist their charms; picked and matched some together, and came up with these hanging ornaments. There are rose quartz, bluestone glass, dyed fresh water pearls, carnelian, unakite, Swarovski crystals, etc.
I just love the sparkling effect of Swarovski crystals, the colourful and interesting effect of natural semi-precious stones, the alluring lustre of pearls, plus some interesting man-made beads.
And look what I have here!
Actually, it is just a normal folded crane, but it is my 10-year old girl who folded it. I think it is quite a fest for a child to fold it at this size, isn't it?
