When I make things I don't always spend a lot of time designing. I just pick up things in my hand that I have purchased or made and gathered on the table - in this case lots of tables and then I go forward.
I know many people draw out designs, etc first. I did use my sewing machine to hand gather and pleat tissue papers that I had cut into strips and also tulle that had been glittered. I tried using my ruffler/pleater but couldn't get it to work so I just did it by gathering along on the sewing machine.
I guess I put the most in this cone:
I printed out some Ephemera paper snow angels, etc that I purchased on Etsy. Right now I am also drawn to French writing Ephemera and Madonna's.
This is called a Hearth room which is part of our kitchen:
I set up a table temporarily to enjoy watching Hallmark's while I worked these last two days.
And this last one:
Of course this means making some
messes too but that's ok.
I made a little label that I glued on to the back of each one that says "Victorian Ephemera in the 21st Century by Bernideen".
